For gold card: Fold brown in half and stamp Holly Cluster and Mini Flower with Versafine Vintage Sepia pad. Cut cream cardstock to 2.25x2.25 and gold cardstock to 2.5x2.5. Emboss Leafy Vine Wreath in gold on cream and attach to gold panel.

Using crystal lacquer with the needle tip applicator, fill in leaves on wreath and sprinkle with green glitter (in the Christmas sparklets set). Shake off excess. Add tiny dots of crystal lacquer for the berries and sprinkle red glitter. Allow to dry. Using quickie glue pen, add touches to base card and sprinkle with gold iridescent glitter. Attach panel to card and tie a bow and attach to the top of card.

For silver card: Fold black card in half. Cut panel of silver to 4x5.25 inches. Stamp the vine stamps and mini flower all over the silver panel with glue pad and sprinkle silver iridescent glitter. Attach silver panel to black base card and set aside.

Cut white panel 2.25x2.25 inches and black panel 2.5x2.5 inches. Emboss Leafy vine wreath in silver embossing powder. Using crystal lacquer using needle applicator, fill in leaves and sprinkle with silver iridescent Sparklets glitter. Attach embossed panel to black panel and mount to base card.

Beautiful results! The Leafy vine is so versatile. With the right colors, it can be transformed to a Christmas card. You can use the silver/black card for a silver anniversary or wedding card and do a gold version for a 50th anniversary or wedding card. Try a navy blue and silver combination or a silver on the iridescent pastel cardstock for a soft look for all year round. The possibilities are endless! I'd love to hear your combinations.
