Golden Pewter Pine Joy

It was just me and Angie at the Store yesterday. Renee headed down to her Parent’s with Nicholas for Christmas. I had a few orders to take to the Post Office and then some people came in to pick up a few things I had on hold. Heather went to the New York & Co. across the street so I met her there and then we stopped back at the Store to get my things. I stopped home and then went over to Geroge’s for a bit. The rest of the evening was quiet, dinner with my Parent’s and then a few movies. Today I have some projects to work on and some last minute gifts to get, I always wait until the last minute to shop! πŸ™‚

I did make a card last night too. I like the simple elegant feel I think that it has. I used the Hero Arts Holiday Florals Bold Prints Background Stamp and heat embossed it in Hero Arts Gold Embossing Powder onto a piece of Basic Gray. Then I used the Concord & 9th Joy Die to cut out the letters and adhered them with 3M Foam Tape to a piece of Champagne Curious Metallic. Across the bottom of my card base, Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock, I adhered a piece of Gold Washi Tape. I then adhered the panel with the Joy using E-Z Runner and Fun Foam. My pine boughs are cut from Galvanized Curious Metallic using the Concord & 9th Take a Bough Die. I snipped them in half and adhered them behind the panel with more E-Z Runner. A very simple but elegant card! I hope that you like today’s card! Thanks for my Christmas Eve visit! I wish you allΒ a very Happy Christmas! πŸ™‚

  5. Justin,
    When I looked at this card I thought “simple and elegant”. Then I read your description and I see you agree with me. lol
    Well we are leaving for our holiday visits any minute now. An hour and a half to my sister’s this evening. Then home to take care of our 2 dogs. Tomorrow about the same travel distance to go to my husband’s sister’s house. Love getting together with family.
    Wishing you a very merry Christmas!
