Warmest Wishes

When I look back at Christmas Time and recall making this card, the Warmest Wishes sentiment will take me back to the very hot weather that it was when I was making the card! Its kind of hard to think of  Christmas when its like that outside so I chose one of the most simple of designs. Its so versatile, it can be any size, just depends on your card blank size. Simply cut a circle out of the middle of a piece of Antique Gold Pearl cardstock and then emboss with, in this case Star Swirls embossing folder. I have then embossed a slightly bigger square in milk card with a Snowflake lattice embossing folder.

I have then simply die cut lots of Pine Twigs from Brunswick Green card and some of the smallest berry Sprigs. On each of the 'berries' I have dropped a bit of Berry Red Cosmic Shimmer. It was then placed all around the edge as in the photos.

Finally, I cut the sentiment 'Warmest Wishes' twice from the Antique Gold Pearl card, I think this gives an easier piece to work with. As my friend said, it looks just like a very famous stores Luxury Christmas cards, but at a fraction of the price.
