Golden Tree

Made using the Nestabilities Labels dies I love the way these nest together and also allow an embossed edge, once I've cut the shape I leave it in the die and just run around the edge with an embossing tool, much easier than searching for the tan mat.
the paper is a K&Co which I've had in my stash forever I used stickles diamond to bling the paper up and a Martha Stewart Border punch on the bottom of the paper.
The stamp I used is from the Father Knows Best stamp set from Papertrey Ink, heat embossed this with gold powder.

Simple but so clever, jak! I have that paper in my stash as well---I feel a tree card coming on!

Beautiful and so effective. I love the tip about running the embossing tool around the edges of the die. I sometimes wonder I'll break my cuttlebug!!

Wow Jak. Sometimes less is more. It's a gorgeous card. I love the tip abt the nestabilities. Do you mind if I pass this tip on, as it's a very good advice and how much quicker to do it that way.

What a brilliant way of doing the embossing - so much easier. Do you put any sort of embossing at underneath?
Love the stamp but wish you wouldn't make me so jealous with all the stamps we can't get over here LOL!!

Love this one Jak- the colours and the simplicity. Got so many tree stamps that would work as well - if I could find 'em - lol!! Love the tip re nesties too. Instead of searching for the tan mat I'll go hunting for the embossing tool rofl! On second thoughts - I know where my tan mats are. Not sure where embossing tools are though - hehehe!!
