Start with a Garden Green cs card base. Cut the Gold Foil panel and dry emboss it with the Hammered Metal 3D embossing folder. Use Stampin' Seal to adhere the embossed Gold Foil to the card base. Cut the Brightly Gleaming Specialty DSP panel and wrap the panel with the Gold Metallic Trim (from the Forever Greenery Trim Combo pack) - I used Stampin' Seal and a glue dot to attach the trim and tie the bow. Then use more Stampin' Seal to adhere it across the card base and embossed Gold Foil.
Die cut a Very Vanilla cs stitched label with the Stitched Nested Labels dies. Stamp the sentiment from the Christmas Gleaming stamp set in Memento Black ink on the Stitched Label. Use the cap off of the Light Pretty Peacock to flick Pretty Peacock ink on the stitched label. Then use Stampin' Dimensionals to attach the label over the DSP and embossed Gold Foil.
Stamp the sentiment from the Christmas Gleaming stamp set in Pretty Peacock ink on a piece of Very Vanilla cs and then use Paper Snips to fussy cut the sentiment out. Add the Mini Stampin' Dimensionals to the back of the sentiment and set it aside.
Stamp the holly image from the Christmas Gleaming stamp set in Memento Black ink on Very Vanilla Cs three times. Color the image with the Stampin' Blends and then fussy cut out the holly.
Don't forget to add a Very Vanilla cs inside panel to write your message. I also added a strip of embossed Gold Foil to the inside and back of the card to pull the theme through.
