Elegant Hand-Penned Holiday Card

Embossing just says "fancy"!  And you do two types on this card--but it's really not a fussy card to make.

Supplies needed:
Stamp sets: Hand-Penned Holidays 124310(w), 124312(c) and 115026(w)
Cardstock: Always Artichoke 105119, Cherry Cobbler 119685
Ink: VersaMark Pad 102283
Accessories:  Big Shot with Framed Tulips Embossing Folder 121809, Gold Stampin' Emboss Powder 109129, Heat Tool 100005, Basic Pearl Jewels 119247

1.  Cut Always Artichoke cardstock 11" x 4-1/4", score on the long side at 5-1/2" and fold for card base.
2.  Cut Cherry Cobbler cardstock 5-1/4"x4", insert in Framed Tulips embossing folder and run through the Big Shot.
3.  Ink Merry Christmas with VersaMark, stamp it at bottom of cardstock and sprinkle with the gold embossing powder.  Tap off excess and use Heat Tool until set.
4.  Ink the large pine tree with VersaMark and stamp onto cardfront.  Add pearls and attach to card base, centering with about 1/8" border.
