Christmas Season Pinecone Cluster

Heart of Christmas Blog Header 2021

Each Monday evening, I am taking part in the Heart of Christmas blog hop showcasing our amazing range of holiday products from the Annual and July-December Mini catalogues. Please hop along and enjoy some fabulous inspiration from our talented team!

Tonight’s cards feature some pinecones again, which coordinte beautifully with the patterned paper in the background! Pinecone hunting was one of my childhood memories, who could find the biggest one to put in the open fire place of our home.

The Christmas Season bundle and Painted Christmas Designer Series Paper are heavily featured in these cards.

The card base, stamped branches and sentiment (Christmas to Remember stamp set) are Evening Evergreen. The pinecones are stamped in Crumb Cake and Early Espresso inks.

This next card features some Soft Succulent stamped foliage, Red Foil die cut berries and Real Red Mini Ruffled Ribbon.

The Soft Succulent layer is embossed with the Tasteful Textiles 3D Embossing Folder. These pinecones are stamped off once in the background and full strength on the top layer in Early Espresso for a darker look.

On both cards I added some of the Evening Evergreen In Color Jewels.

On the inside of both cards, I decorated them with the same sentiment and strip of DSP.

Christmas Season Pinecones & Berries

Heart of Christmas Blog Header 2021

Each Monday evening until mid-December, I am taking part in the Heart of Christmas blog hop showcasing our amazing range of holiday products from the Annual and July-December Mini catalogues. Please hop along and enjoy some fabulous inspiration from our talented team!

I was pleased with this card as it came together. I adore that pretty patterned DSP with the berries (Painted Christmas), so that was my starting point for this card, as I built up the background layers.

I stamped some of the berries (Real Red & Evening Evergreen ink) to compliment the patterned paper and some greenery (Soft Succulent & Evening Evergreen inks), but it still needed more, so I stamped four pinecones in Crumb Cake and Early Espresso inks.
