OCC Holiday Style Day 11. Finally!

Hello! Sorry I haven't posted in a while. I've been in Boston visiting my brother. I am posting this picture so you can see us after the food had been prepared. (Somebody -- me -- forgot to move the vegetable broth before snapping the picture...) He's not a professional chef, but the white jacket was a gift to him since he cooks like a gourmet chef. That turkey was so moist and good, along with everything else we had. I gained a few pounds on that trip! See my chubby cheeks? I may have snitched a piece of turkey...
Hope you'all had a good Thanksgiving, too! Now it's time to move forward with more Christmas cards.

Thought I should post this one before it gets any later. The card was my homework for the last day of Online Card Classes Holiday Style lessons. I finished it right before I left for Boston but didn't have time to post it before today.

I followed a video lesson by Kelly Latevola using a Tim Holtz Scribbly Christmas stamp set for a "Classic and Elegant" styled card.

I stamped a variety of the trees using different shades of Tim Holtz Distress Inks and heat embossed some on top in gold and silver. Over that, I placed a piece of vellum that had the sentiment die cut and then heat embossed in gold. Finally, I added a few tiny green gems from Hero Arts for the finishing touch.

This wasn't a difficult card to make. Probably the toughest part was getting very tiny dots of liquid glue behind the sentiment for the vellum to stick.

I appreciate you stopping by today. Your comments and visits mean the world to me! Hope to see you again real soon ~
