I always love creating in shades of neutral. I find them very warm and comforting. I decided to try a Christmas card in neutral tones:

  • On an Early Espresso base I added an embossed sheet of Soft Suede using the Evergreen Forest 3D embossing folder.
  • I used the Evergreen Border Punch and punched out 3 borders of evergreen trees: one in Gray Granite cardstock; one in Very Vanilla cardstock; and one in Copper Brushed Metallic cardstock.
  • I arranged those in a staggered way on the card front to create depth. I used glue dots to attach the back two borders, but used black dimensionals for the front metallic border to increase the illusion of depth.
  • On a scalloped circular label die cut with the Tasteful Labels dies I embossed the one word sentiment Noel from the Tidings and Trimmings stamp set in Copper embossing powder. It is mounted with dimensionals over a layer of the Gold Shimmer Ribbon from the Blackberry Beauty suite and added little snippets of Early Espresso Faux Suede Trim and Gold Fine Art Ribbon.
