TSOT 475 - Gold Christmas Trees

Welcome to this week's Try Stampin' on Tuesday challenge!

The additional theme for this week (plus the sketch) is to use metallics. 

I used gold on my card for the metallics theme. Christmas is coming up way too fast and I need to get started on my Christmas cards! Gold works well with any colour so I chose standard red and green for my card. 

The trees were die cut from gold foil and gold glitter paper and adhered to a piece of Clover cardstock. The background striped paper is gold foil cardstock and I wrapped a piece of white and gold ribbon around the paper and tied a bow on the front. The flourishes are from a very old set of adhesive flourishes and I coloured them in red. The sentiment was stamped in Clover ink and backed with a Candy Apple mat. 

I also decorated the inside of the card since it is a large card (6" x 6"). The sentiment there was stamped using the rock and roll technique to get both green and red inks on the stamped image. I drew a border around the edge and added dots and stars along the way. 

Come and join us at TSOT and show us how you interpret the sketch shown above.
