FTTC #42


I seldom use this glorious green, as it is my least favorite color of all greens, but pulled it out for a traditional Christmas card. I stamped the pine needles with cottage ivy (Memento) and the ornament in Versamark and then covered it with gold embossing powder. I embossed the green card base with one of the new larger cuttlebug folders. I used some ribbon and a flock covered tree brad for my embellishments. A Martha Stewart punch was used on the real red panel, with green rhinestones to add a little sparkle.

I agree with you that glorious green is not a favorite but you made it work so well. I saw on your profile that you love the book, "I will love you forever" Did you know that Taylored Expressions has a stamp with a quote from that book? It is one of my favorites, too.

That shade of green is my least favorite, too. But it works well on your Christmas card, Liz. I like your little Christmas tree addition to the ribbon. Very cute!
