Papertrey Ink November 2016 Blog Hop

Isn't that photo just gorgeous!  Tons of inspiration to pull from to make a card that is for sure!  Nicole picked a fabulous photo don't you think?!   I focused on the white fluffy tree and colorful ornaments for my card.

I started by stamping the pine boughs from PTI's Bells and Boughs in Versamark ink and heat embossed them in white.  I brushed aqua mist over the entire card doing an ombre type of blending with the darker color at the top and getting gradually lighter as you go down.  I cut the ornaments  out of PTI raspberry fizz, tropical teal, and green parakeet cardstock.    I pulled out some very old gold embossing powder to add touches of gold to the ornaments. It is soo old the price tag actually said $3.50!   It didn't melt that smoothly but in this case it made the ornaments look old which worked well for this style of card.   You can see the embossing better in the photo below.
 I suspended the ornaments from gold string.  A greeting from PTI stylized sentiments: holiday also embossed in gold finishes the card.
