Holly & Pine Christmas

I have been meaning for a long time to enter a card into the Rudolph Days Challenge which is held every month. Of course, that means to make a Christmas card. So once again I used a stenciled design from the Tim Holtz Collection 19 and along with Deco Transfer Gel and Deco Amber Watercolor Foil I made a design on some metallic green card stock which I left to dry overnight. By running it through my laminator I foiled it and then added it to a card base of metallic gold card stock. I used a Memory Box Cross Stitched Border die to cut out the panel. The sentiment from Gina K. Designs was stamped with Versamark ink and then embossed with Gina K. Designs Fine Detail Gold embossing powder. It was added to a strip of the foiled paper and I also added a strip of foiled paper along the one side. I then popped the sentiment over the top.


I finished the card by adding a panel of ivory card stock inside so that I could stamp a message or write one.

Well, we got lots of rain again last night so we continue to be in a wet state here in our area. But I guess that is better then not enough rain so I will try not to complain too much. We are mudding the produce out of the garden. Only certain footwear is used this year to gather the crop. Normally August is hot and dry but this year we have been cooler and very wet.

I wish all of you a great weekend and I thank you for visiting and for always leaving such wonderful comments.

God bless,
Verna

Verna, you're certainly on a roll when it comes to using foil. This one is beautiful, too, but the red one just gave me the Christmas spirit; I think it was because of the whole section of none stop red poinsettias against the white card stock. It just jumped at me!! This one is just as nice and I love the foiled holiday as a change for Christmas. Using two colors of foil was awesome. I like your idea of putting a sheet inside the card to write on, too.
