Christmas Swag

Have you been enjoying the fabulous projects so far on the Holiday Blog Blitz? I'm adding my project to this holiday extravaganza with a card featuring two of the new release dies.  Pine Boughs and Fancy Merry Christmas.

When I saw the Pine Boughs Dies I immediately thought of making a Christmas swag on my card front, kind of like the one I hang on my front door.

I die cut a bunch of pine boughs in two different shades of green and used a sponge dauber to apply Versamark  ink to parts of the needles.  I then added gold embossing powder and zapped it with the heat gun.

I layered the embossed boughs with plain ones and added a red bow with long tails.  Keeping with the traditional green and red theme, I added a red sentiment and layered this onto a red card base. Oh, and I forgot to mention that I splattered my white card stock with gold paint.

Love the new use of the pine bough die. I also like the touch of gold. Makes me think that white would look good too.

Love your card and that touch of sparkle peeking through.

So pretty! Love the pine arrangement and the gold and gold splatters too. Beautiful work. Thanks for sharing.
