MFP Sneak Peek! Gold Christmas Trees

This is my third post of the day and I thought I'd 'sneak' another sneak peek in before the day was done. (Ha, ha!  See what I did there, lol).

This card was made using 'Mountain Selections'.  I stamped and heat embossed the images in gold, and distressed the panel.  I chose card stock and patterned papers, cut everything down, adhered them together and added some ribbon.  After adhering to the card base, the trees panel was adhered over the ribbon with foam squares.  I added green rhinestones for a bit more sparkle.

The centre of the card was decorated with a panel of white, stamped with a sentiment from a new set called 'Winter Scenes', and some scraps.

This is my last sneak peek of the day, but I will be showing some new sets tomorrow, then the official blog hop starts on Tuesday.  See you then!

Here are the supplies I used for my card:

Card Stock:  Stampin' Up!  Old Olive, Gina K Designs Pure White, Lily Bee Designs Jingle
6x6 Tiny Tablet.

Stamps:  Marks Finest Papers Mountain Selections, Winter Scenes.

Ink:  Versamark Watermark Ink, Versafine Onyx Black

Embossing Powder:  Stampin' Up! Gold.

Embellishments:  May Arts Seam Binding, gold mesh from stash, Scrappin' Supplies rhinestones.

Adhesive:  Scotch ATG, foam squares, glue dots.

Tools:  Paper trimmer, bone folder, scissors, Martha Stewart scoring board, Tonic paper distresser, heat tool.
