Well, by now I guess you’ve figured out that I’m pretty smitten with the new Holiday Catalog. There are so many fun, pretty, amazing new products, and I want to show you them all! Today I’m featuring a new embossing folder called Pine Bough. It’s included in the Presents & Pinecones suite of products, but I think it does just fine on its own.

Here’s how I did it:

The card base is a Silver Foil Sheet cut to 4-1/4″ x 11″ and scored at 5-1/2″. Although if I were to make this card again, I would cut it to 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″ and score it at 4-1/4″ for a tent card. I adhered a 4-1/8″ x 5-3/8″ piece of Soft Sky card stock to the front with Fast Fuse. I find Fast fuse works better than liquid glue on the slick foil sheets.

I ran a 4″ x 5-1/4″ piece of Whisper White card stock through the Big Shot with the new Pine Bough embossing folder.

I cut an ornament and ornament topper from a Silver Foil Sheet with the Delicate Ornament Thinlits Dies. I adhered the top to the ornament with Fast Fuse, then glued the ornament onto the embossed piece. Glue works fine on the back of the foil sheets.

I used my Paper-Piercing Tool to poke a tiny hole in the paper, and threaded a piece of Silver Metallic Thread around the ornament top and through the hole, where I adhered it on the back with Fast Fuse. I glued the Whisper White piece onto the Soft Sky piece.

The last touch was the bow. There is no Soft Sky Baker’s Twine, so I made some. I cut a length of Whisper White Solid Baker’s Twine, and put it in a small glass bowl with a few drops of Soft Sky Classic Stampin’ Ink Refill. I moved it around with my Paper-Piercing tool to make sure it all got dyed, then I laid it out on a paper towel to dry. I tied the dried twine in a small bow and adhered it to the ornament with a Mini Glue Dot.

Here’s what I used:
