Today's Create With Connie & Mary Saturday Hop theme is Vanilla & Gold Christmas. I absolutely LOVE this combination; it's so rich and elegant looking!
I chose the Merriest Trees bundle because I wanted to use as many of our gold designer papers as I could for the tree layers. After die cutting all the layers, I curled up the bottom edges before gluing them together to give a little more of a 3D look, and then popped it up on the embossed background.
It's great that we can bend the photopolymer greetings, which I did for the banner. After heat-embossing it in gold, I hand cut the banner and glued just the ends so it floats over the tree. I considered adding some gold Festive Pearls around, but I really think the tree doesn't need anything to distract from it. What do you think?
That's all for today - see you next Saturday! Up next is Libby Fens at Libby Stamps. Or click the "back" button to go back to Lori at Loritamarie Crafts.
