The Stampin’ Up! Online Extravaganza begins Monday, November 23! Scroll down for more information, or view the list here.
This is one of the cards Mike picked for our company Christmas cards. It was inspired by a card I saw on Pinterest created by jandjccc and posted on splitcoaststampers. The original used the retired set “Ornamental Pine,” but, of course, I sold my set when it retired. Instead, I used Winter Wishes, a current set in the Holiday catalog. It will be retiring in January, though, so snatch it up now!
I stamped the pine cones separately, then fussy cut them and added them to the branches with Stampin’ Dimensionals. Here’s a little tip. After you finish cutting, sponge a little ink the same color as your stamped image on the edges. It will make it look a little more finished. In this case, it was Early Espresso.
Finding a teeny, tiny bow was a challenge. I had just given up and was using some Gold Cording Trim when I remembered the little bow in the Mini Treat Bag Thinlits. Perfect!
After everything was stamped and glued on, I added a little Dazzling Details to the pine cones, because – glitter. You have to have some kind of glitter for Christmas. And Birthdays. And Weddings. And Friday.
This card is super simple and plain (for me), but I like it, and apparently so does Mike. I think it’s because I used traditional Christmas colors – Cherry Cobbler, Always Artichoke, and Early Espresso. He likes Night of Navy with silver as well. Such a traditional man I married!
Thanks for stopping by Stamping with Buffy. Have a wonderful day!
