This month, our Blog Hop theme is Winter and Christmas!  I just love Christmas time and Christmas crafting!  The card I'm sharing today was created using the Stampin' Up! Among the Branches Bundle from the Holiday Catalog.  I have gotten so much use from this set!  It is just so versatile!


This is my finished card.  I'm really happy with how it turned out.  I played around with a lot of different color combinations for this card.

I knew I wanted to use this bundle which includes a stamp set and embossing folder.  So I started by inking one side of the embossing folder with my lost lagoon ink pad and ran it through my big shot with Whisper White card stock.

I stamped my sentiment covering a whole sheet of Whisper White card stock in different color inks so I would have different options to choose from.

Then, I stamped the hanging ornaments from the set with Versamark ink and heat embossed them with gold embossing powder.

Then I laid out a few color combos and settled on the one on the top left.  I liked the contrast between the light blue Lost Lagoon and the deep, rich Cherry Cobbler.

Here's a few close ups :)  I just love gold for Christmas!  These doilies are so cute!
