A Golden Festival of Trees

I don't play with embossing powders much anymore.  I'm not sure why.  Maybe it's because everything I've been playing with lately has a die or punch with it and I'm feeling that it's enough.  Though embossed trees punched out would be pretty!!!  Hmmm, I'm not really sure why I don't play with embossing powders much anymore.  I do like the looks of them.  

I found this card, or something similar to it, made by Julie at Stampin' Gala.  I did make a few little changes.  My words are different and so is the background as well as the layout of the background.  My bow is also different.  I didn't have the gold ribbon that Julie used but I did have some gold ribbon. It happened to have wire in it (not a Stampin' Up! product) so I thought I would use it.  It doesn't make a bow as nice as regular ribbon does.  And here I had to add the bow separate because of the wire.  But I was glad I could use what I had in my home.  I have SO much stuff to use up before I invest in any new stuff.

To make this card I stamped the trees in VersaMark and embossed them using gold embossing powder. Then I used the embossing folder for the background and cut it to fit the tree panel.  I set it in place to see where to stamp the words. Those words are from the "Teeny Tiny Wishes" set.  I embossed them in gold too.

It was a quick card to make too!  I love the gold on white.  Julie used the gold on Very Vanilla.  I just grabbed white when I saw the card.  I didn't read first.  But either way it turns out to be a pretty card!!!  It was a fun card to make too!

Thank you SO much for visiting today,

Beautiful CAS card.
Normally if I'm going to be using wire ribbon on a card, I will pull out the wire which making the bow much easier

I really like the embossed paper behind the image, it almost looks like a decorative frame.

TY for sharing!
