Last Call for Christmas with PPA232

This is how I developed this Gold and Green Christmas card: 
  1. I knew I needed one more Christmas card for a very special person. 
  2. I wanted to use The Newborn King stamp set.
  3. I needed to follow the above sketch.
With the above criteria, my work was done for me! I had time to stamp the main image of the set using VersaMark and Gold Embossing powder with my heat tool.

I chose to keep all of the colors simple using two greens, a blue and some yellow. I used my ink pads and Blender Pen. When you use a heat embossed image, it's easy to stay in the lines because the lines keep your marker from going over. It makes the coloring much quicker. 

This is not a card I would mass produce, but as I said, it is for a special someone.  The second element on the card is the striped Trim the Tree designer series paper, which is also trimmed in gold. My Gold Satin ribbon was used as the vertical element.

I hope you are inspired and that you will leave me a comment below. I love all of your sweet comments and I appreciate the time you take to write them
