Tree of Gold

Hi friends!  It's Jenny posting today.  This week Classy Cards is hosting such a fun challenge.  I was so inspired by the beautiful tree in the inspiration photo that I wanted to recreate it.

First I cut the Poppystamps Large Flourish Tree out of white card stock.  I covered it in Versamark ink and sprinkled Gold embossing powder on top.  I heat embossed it and then repeated my steps to get good coverage with the gold embossing powder.

The poinsettias are from the Poppystamps Small Blooming Poinsettia die.  They were cut out of a beautiful shimmery cream card stock, stacked and glued.  For two of them, I didn't use the largest flower, because I wanted the flowers small.  After stacking and gluing I tried to spread out the flower layers to give them more dimension.  I also took the little center part and used a bit of Gold Viva Decor Pearl Pen for shine and added color.  They are popped up with Joy! Foam Pads.

I glued the tree to the shimmery cream card stock and then used Joy! Foam Pads to adhere it to the patterned layer which was also popped up with Joy! Foam Pads.  The green patterned background paper is from the Authentique Tradition stack.  I liked how the paper added another swirl element and a touch of elegance and interest to an otherwise simple card.

Thanks for looking and I hope you can play along this week!
