Hey cardmaking friends. Sandi MacIver here and today I'm sharing Christmas Cardmaking in GOLD.
Today is the Picket Fence Studio December Release - WHOO HOO. So many fun new products, but I used just ONE of the new products in today's card. The NEW, Lots of Blossoms Stencil and I'm going to share with you how I created this beautiful card using just one stencil.
It's super simple, fast and easy and you can use this technique on any type of card for any celebration.

I had so much fun creating this card, but my OCD kicked in, and I had to exactly line up those crazy petals, LOL. It's a simple hinge technique so let's get started.
How to create my Christmas Cardmaking in GOLD Card:
Start by using the Lots of Blossoms 6 x 6 stencil to dry emboss the 4-1/4 x 5-1/2 mirror gold background.
Place that down on your grid paper and trace around it with a pencil.
Lay the stencil over it, line up the blossoms, and then tape the stencil to the grid paper on one side with some washi tape - creating a hinge.
Next, take a piece of black cardstock also 4-1/4 x 5-1/2, place a small amount of adhesive on the back, and attach it inside the outline you traced.
Flip the stencil back over the cardstock and secure it on all sides.
Remove the stencil and clean it immediately and let the Paper Glaze dry.
Flip the piece over, and using your grid paper, draw pencil lines where you want to cut the tree.
I took an inch from each side, up to the center at the top. if you want a wider tree, take less than an inch on each side.
Cut on the lines, flip the tree back over and use foam squares to attach it to your card, lining up the florals.
Adding the Sentiment to your card:
Use the Picket Fence Studios Fancy Christmas Sentiments and Dies to Gold emboss a sentiment onto a strip of black cardstock and then cut it out with the coordinating die.
Attach it across the tree, near the bottom with Foam Squares. Finally, embellish the tree with Sands of Time Gem Mix.
