Elegant White and Gold Christmas Card

Here is a card I made for the Classy Cards N Such challenge #108 to make a friend card and add a squirrel or a bird.

I started my card with a white card base.  I cut another white layer and embossed it using the
Darice Doily Lace embossing folder.

Next I chose two stamps to stamp my sentiment. One of them had My Friend on it and the other one had Merry Christmas.   I aligned them on my block  and stamped them in Versamark and followed with Gold Detail Embossing Powder.   This is a great way to stretch your stamps.

I used the Impression Obsession Pine Branch  die to cut the white pine branches.  I attached them to my card using Art Institute Dries Clear Adhesive.

I used Gold shiny card stock to cut my birds using Bird Song Dies  Secret Treasures Collection.  I attached the gold birds to the branches, also using the Art Institute Dries Clear adhesive.

My finishing touch to my card was to make a bow with  gold ribbon and using the Bow Easy.  This is a great tool for me because I cannot tie pretty bows.

I hope you will join us for the challenge this week.  Beverly always has a nice prize for the winner.
