Christmas, Stampin' Up!

Pinecones for Christmas

Dear Crafters,

Today I have another card using the Christmas Pines stamp set and the Pretty Pines thinlits which can be purchased as a bundle!

I love how this bundle can be used for Christmas cards, but I also think that it can be used for other projects throughout the year, as well as in my scrapbooking pages, so it is also very versatile.

I wasn’t sure what colours to use for the stamped layers of the pine cones, so this was a bit of an experiment. As you can see, I have done the smaller one on white card, stamped with Crumb Cake then Soft Suede. The middle one is Soft Suede and Early Espresso and the largest pine cone is Soft Suede, then stamped off Early Espresso then a full strength Early Espresso.

The Designer Series paper, Presents & Pinecones DSP was used as a layer on the Early Espresso base card. This dark brown card is not a colour I would normally associate with Christmas, but it works so well with this DSP.

What do you think of this Christmas card?
