Golden Holiday Tree Tutorial

Hello! Today I have a quick little tutorial for another of the cards I shared at the GKD release party last week.

I stamped the tree, from Joyful Holiday, using Versa Mark ink, then sprinkled gold embossing powder before heat setting. After embossing, I cut out the image using Spellbinders™ Nestabilities® A2 Matting Basics B. 

Then sponged Memento Cantaloupe ink around the edges.

And sponged a bit of Memento Desert Sand.

 I added red gems to the tree. The sentiment was stamped with Memento Love Letter and cut out. I layered with Pure Luxury Metallic gold card stock, also cut with A2 Matting Basics B and used an Ivory card base (4 ¼ by 5 ½ inches). The bow was made using pretty swirly ribbon from Creative Impressions.

Thanks for stopping by. I hope you have a wonderful day!

I'm very new to copics and it sure helps when you show the colors you use and the way you actually do the blended. From looking at your tutorial, I've already corrected one error I've been I'm getting better...slowly but surely. THANKS.
