Its July, but it's not too soon to start making Christmas cards! The 2019-2020 Holiday Card isn't out yet, but there are beautiful Christmas stamp sets in the Annual Catalog. Winter Woods is on page 71 of the 2019-2020 Annual Catalog. I love this stamp set because it is so versatile, not only for holiday stamping, but other occasions as well.
This card is made using the Magnolia Lane Large Specialty Memories & More Cards & Envelopes set (page 37, 2019-2020 AC). These are beautiful, pre-made card bases with matching envelopes. How easy is that? I wanted to bring out the lovely silver edging on the front of this card. So, I've heat embossed the background trees and the sentiment with silver embossing powder. A touch of gold is added with the 3/8" metallic ribbon and gold Faceted Gem.
I've used a tree made from the Gold Foil sheet and one made from Sparkle Glimmer Paper. Which one do you like? I lean toward the Sparkle Glimmer Paper. It does not show up well in these photos, but the tree cut from the Sparkle Glimmer paper really shines! The trees are cut using In the Woods dies, page 193 in the 1919-2020 AC.
