Elegant Evergreen

The Cheery Lynn Designs challenge this week is Silver and/or Gold.  So I thought I would make another Christmas card, this one with silver.  I began with this beautiful Cathedral Lace Frame, die cutting it from Cryogen white card stock and backing it with Silver metallic card stock.  I mounted this to a red panel that I first added texture to with my Big Wicker die (embossing instead of cutting)  I mounted both of these onto a 5 x 7 Cryogen card stock base.  Next came the Elegant Evergreen; I separated the layers and then popped them up for some added dimension.  For the border on the bottom, I die cut Anastasia out of silver card stock, backing it with more Cryogen.  The last step was to add some gems; holly in the top corners and then red gems on the tree and border.  This card has a lot of sparkle and shine!
