Today I am featuring greens in my Holiday Showcase card…I used Always Artichoke and Sage Shadow and love how these two greens work well together to give an elegant holiday look…

The tree has a glossy look from Clear Embossing Powder and the large snowflakes are sprinkled with Dazzling Diamonds to give a wonderful sparkly card…

I stamped the tree from the set Snow Swirled onto Whisper White cardstock using Always Artichoke Ink. I then used my Stamp-a-majig to re-stamp over the top of this image using Versamark Ink and then sprinkled on Clear Stampin’ Emboss Powder and used my Heat Tool to set it – it gives a clear shine and makes the stamped image appear a deeper, richer color.  I then cut my cardstock to size and used my Ticket Corner Punch to shape the corners. I matted this image onto a piece of Always Artichoke cardstock using Dimensionals to ‘lift’ it from the base.

The card base is Always Artichoke and I matted a piece of Sage Shadow onto it. I then cut a piece of Whisper White to size to mat onto that and stamped the snowflakes onto it using a stamp from Snow Swirled and Always Artichoke Ink – then on the larger snowflakes I used my Two-Way Glue Pen and sprinkled on Dazzling Diamonds Glitter to give a lovely sparkle to them – it’s hard to capture this in my photograph but they really shimmer and shine…

To put it all together, I took my cardstock that I stamped the snowflakes onto and adhered it to the Sage Shadow mat – I then tied a piece of Whisper White Tafetta around and tied a knot onto it. I adhered this to the card base and finally attached the Holiday tree into place on the top – and there you have a very elegant Holiday card that shimmers and shines beautifully…
