ONE DIE - THREE CARDS

Teresa Collins' Christmas paper was the start for these cards today.  As I leafed through the pad I found the gold and silver star page and decided to use it for the background.  The first tree was cut from silver metallic card and gold embossed along the edges.  The sentiment is three layers of card in the metallic gold.
I'm going to add this to PTI's Make it Monday challenge (use gold embossing on edges) and also Merry Monday's current challenge of "Silent Night".

The next card uses the same elements, except I cut the extra parts of the die twice and added the top and bottom of the tree in gold to a silver base.

The negative parts of the silver were added to a gold base and dry embossed for the third card.  The sentiment is 3 layers of card and I added some glitter pen to it (sorry it didn't photograph very well).
It was fun trying to get 3 different cards with basically the same supplies.

ETA:I am entering the cards in Moxie Fab's Tree-mendous Trees Challenge.

Supplies: PTI "Merry & Bright", Memory Box "Peace" and HA "Merry";  Neenah  metallic paper; Ranger liquid gold embossing powder; Teresa Collins' "Tinsel & Company" 6x6 pad

Thanks for visiting today and your comments are very much appreciated.  Betty
