Special Season, FMS102

Happy Monday, friends! I was messing around with my Special Season Stamp Set over the weekend to see how the tree would look stamped and embossed in different colors. I came to the conclusion that I like it best embossed in silver or gold. It really makes a statement that way. I like the way the gold embossing pairs with traditional Christmas colors, too.

After cutting my embossed tree with an Ovals Framelit, it worked just perfectly for the sketch at Freshly Made Sketches. I originally had a greeting draped over the tree, but I hated to cover it up so opted for a card without a sentiment. I'll stamp my sentiment on the inside. After all, the image pretty much speaks for itself, don't you think? 

Here's a shot on an angle so you can see how shiny the tree and gold foil are. I embossed the foil sheet with the retired Snow Flurry Embossing Folder. Wow, does it shine! It's pretty enough to make ornaments out of. Hmmm.... idea....

Gorgeous! I agree, you don't always need a sentiment on the front....this is pretty just by itself!
