Lights Aglow for FMS 548

It seems so early to be thinking about Christmas but when my latest Stampin' Up! order came, I couldn't help but pick up the Lights Aglow suite to play with. I turned for inspiration to the latest sketch at Freshly Made Sketches.

This suite contains two bundles, Christmas Lights and  Brightest Glow, which can be purchased separately but I have used both in this card. I also used some of the gorgeous Lights Aglow Specialty DSP.

Very Vanilla, Black and Gold are a favourite combination of mine as I love the richness and contrast those three colours offer plus I always think how elegant they look together.

I gold-embossed the tree, from the Christmas Lights bundle, onto Basic Black and cut it with the outline die. Then, I took the outline die and the textured insert to cut another tree from some Brushed Metallic Cardstock.

The sentiment is from the companion bundle, Brightest Glow, as is the lovely circular die behind the trees. Anchoring it all together is the strip of gold and vanilla paper from the Lights Aglow Specialty DSP pack.

I then trimmed the trees with one of the tiny gold pearls from the Festive Pearls pack - tiny pearls in gold, silver, red and soft green.

I like this card so much, I'm going to try it out in other colours and with some other tree-style combinations.
