Oh Christmas Tree

Silver and gold embossing

The Pennant Parade Stamp Set is one of those sets that can be used for many occasions.  I like how the pennant can be turned into a Christmas tree.

Whisper White cardstock is my cardbase with a layer of Old Olive that was embossed with the Petals-a-Plenty embossing folder.  I stamped my pennants with Versa Mark ink and then heat embossed them with silver embossing powder, and the base was done the same way using gold embossing powder.  After punching out the pennants with the Petite Pennants Builder Punch, I placed the trees onto the card using dimensionals.  A glue dot behind each tree stand held them in place.  Some Real Red Satin Ribbon added a pop of color. I haven't figured out what sentiment I want to add to this card yet, but like the simplicity of it.
