Gold Embossed Evergreen

Christmas Card made with Stampin'UP!'s Evergreen stamp setHere's a simple yet elegant Christmas card. The "elegant" part is the gold embossing. Anything looks classy when gold embossed.  

I actually like to stamp my images with the Gold Encore ink and then sprinkle with the gold embossing powder.  I think it adds extra richness to the embossing.  

And - whoohoo, the Gold Encore Ink pad is on sale this week. See the Weekly Deals for this week here

The "simple" part is the tree: The gold embossed evergreen on this card looks far more complicated than it really is. The simple trick is, that this is a 2-step stamp set. The green of the tree is one stamp and the gold lines are a 2nd stamp.

Stampin'UP!'s Evergreen stamp setIts so fun to give a card like this and have the person ask you how you made it. You'll definitely get a "wow" when you make this tree.

The set is actually called Evergreen. This is one of last year's winter stamp sets so its not in any of the current catalogs

However, Evergreen was so popular last year that it IS still available, but you'll find it on-line only: and it is available in either clear mount or wood mount.
