Day Three of And a Partridge Inspiration Week

I went a bit more elegant on the card for today. Nothing says fancy like gold embossing! I kept it a bit homespun with the patterned paper background and the sweet sentiment font.

I created the red background by blending Festive Berries Distress ink on white cardstock and sprinkling some pearly water on it. Then I stamped the pear tree repeatedly with Festive Berries for a tone on tone look. A bit more sparkly gold was added in addition to the embossed image with dashed lines using a Spica gold pen.

Here's all the products I used for this card:


If you read history you will find that the Christians who did most for the present world 
were precisely those who thought most of the next. 
It is since Christians have largely ceased to think of the other world 
that they have become so ineffective in this.
