Merry Christmas| Watercolor stamped background

Every year I try to finish Christmas cards early so I don't have to worry about it during the holidays.  

I really wanted to use some watercolors for this card. I embossed the Christmas trees with white embossing powder and then water colored them in loosely. After the trees were done I water colored the background with a darker gold color; when it hits the light it really shimmers! 

I used the flash on my camera to show off that shimmer of the gold watercolor. It is really pretty in person and definitely steps up a more simpler card design. 

A little closer shot.
