Christmas Cheer

 Happy Friday, everyone!  I have a pretty little square Christmas card to share today!  It uses the FMS sketch from my sweet friend Jen, and the Color Hues color palette of gold and cream!

My card is 4 1/4" square, and uses Very Vanilla and Gold Foil and Glimmer papers, along with the new Ornamental Envelopes bundle; so here we go:

I stamped the ornaments in Encore Gold ink (ret) and heat embossed them with gold embossing powder, then diecut them with the Envelopes very pretty!  I dry embossed two pieces of Very Vanilla with the Dainty Dots EF and layered everything on a mat of Gold Foil.  The pine boughs were diecut from Gold Glimmer paper and decorated with a Gold Foil diecut bow, which was popped up with a foam sheet diecut as well to give it some sturdiness:

Itty Bitty Christmas provided the sentiment, and I also added a little Metallic Pearl to the center of one of the ornaments.

Such an elegant color combo!  Thanks for popping in today!

My great-nephew Jameson has been attending school in person since the beginning of the school year, but this week was the first time the bus picked him up!  Do you think he was happy to ride it?!

Enjoy your day and be blessed!

All that glitters IS gold in this case. Speaking of everything about your card. Jameson looks like he is totally in fear...of not getting on that bus :-)

Love how you've split the embossing so more gold can show through! A super elegant card, LeAnne!
