I stamped the pine bough from Curvy Christmas in Gray Granite to begin with. I added in some foliage in Just Jade and Shaded Spruce from the Curvy dies. The Just Jade stars are from Gift Wrapped. Together, these elements form a backdrop for the gold and Poppy Parade bow.
Once the stamping was complete, but before adding the die cuts, I embossed the Whisper White card front with the Dainty Diamonds embossing folder.
