Happy Holidays

     I thought I would try my hand at another holiday card, using this one that 
I made for Festive Friday: Trees  as my inspiration. I used many of the same elements, but bumped it up a notch by mounting a die cut tree onto a tag, with a  Scarlet Jewel mat and a burgundy satin ribbon. It's a little thicker than 
my earlier card, so it may be one that I will hand deliver this Christmas!!

The gold embossed tree (Believe) was mounted onto Tag Sale #3 which had been impressed with the Woodgrain Impression Plate. I then created a mat from Scarlet Jewel so the focal panel would really 'pop' against the card base (also impressed with Woodgrain IP). The sentiment (Holiday Lights) was stamped with Vineyard Berry. A simple knotted ribbon was added to the tag.

The inside was finished with another sentiment from  
Holiday Lights and the gift packages from Believe
These were highlighted with a gold gel pen and copic markers.

Card Details: (PTI, unless noted)
Stamps - Believe, Holiday Lights
Inks - Versamark; Memento: Tuxedo Black; Close To My Heart: Vineyard Berry
Papers - Stamper's Select White, Scarlet Jewel,
