Embossed Christmas

Hi Everyone! 

I'd like to start today's post by wishing you all a very Happy Thanksgiving! Today is all about celebrating and being thankful for all we have.  I am especially thankful for being a part of a very loving family, for having great friends and for being blessed with wonderful children, my health, and a job that helps to support our home.  I'm also thankful for being a part of the DRS Designs Design Team and for all of the stress-relief stamping has helped with, LOL!

Well, another week has gone by and a new challenge is posted on the DRS Designs Blog.  For their "I Pine For You" Challenge, you are to use any pine image, punch or die cut.  I used the Christmas Pine Oval (279L).

I heat embossed it with silver embossing powder, and then matted it with a scallop rectangle cut from metallic silver card stock. The card front was simply embossed with the Swiss Dots embossing folder and the bottom was embellished with white satin ribbon and a snowflake die cut attached with a small silver brad. After adhering the matted image to the upper portion of the card front, I added three fish tail banners to the upper right corner and embellished it with a red and white twine bow. I tried to keep things simple since I really thought the embossed image and metallic card stock really made this card elegant. The card base was created from metallic silver card stock and the finished size is 4.25" x 5.5".

Thanks for stopping by today. I hope you all have a wonderful Thanksgiving!
