Solemn Stillness

This is a beautiful, but easy card to make using only 1 ink color and gold embossing. My friend Rosemary designed this card - thanks Ro! I loved it so much I did it at my workshop.

Cardstock: Bravo Burgundy, Always Artichoke, Very Vanilla.

Stampsets: Solemn Stillness

Inks: I used True Thyme but you could use Always Artichoke.

Other: Versa Mark pad, Embossing Buddy, Gold Embossing Powder, Heat Gun, Gold Ribbon

Instructions: I used a Poinsettia wheel (but you can use any stamps or just leave it plain) on the Bravo Burgundy. I stamped the tree with the True Thyme ink on the Vanilla paper. Then I used the swirl tree in Versa Mark to emboss in gold. The greeting at the bottom was also embossed in gold. The Vanilla and True Thyme cardstock are adhered and then gold ribbon is tied around it before adhering it to the Bravo Burgundy.
