Christmas Card Design #1

This is one of my designs for this year's Christmas cards--EASY!

First, I stamped the tree on green cs and gold embossed it. After cutting to size, I punched holes in the tree for "ornaments" and taped it to red paper, leaving a narrow border. Next, I gold embossed the gift package on a scrap piece of the same red cardstock, cut it out and attached it to the card with a pop dot. The star was punched out of a piece of metallic gold cardstock and attached to the treetop with a mini popdot. The finished image was taped to the natural cardstock with the fold at the top. The inside message is: "It was a simple gift of love that changed the course of the world."

Stamps used: Wondrous Gift (SU), City of David (SU), Gift for You (TAC)
Cardstock: Dark Green and red, natural, metallic gold
Ink: Versamark, Deep Green (ColorBox) inside
Accessories: Long reach punch, pop dots, gold tinsel EP (Stampendous)
