‘Tis the Season – Christmas Pinecones

Happy hump day friends, It’s a good feeling when you get here right? Seeing that Christmas is not too far away and it’s always nice to get a head start on those Christmas cards, I’ve got a card using some of the products we have in the current Stampin’ Up! Annual Catalogue and Online Exclusives range.

I’m following the sketch at Just Add Ink Challenge JAI667, the 2 circles were formed using some of our specialty paper.

This was the first time I had used the base leaf die (not sure why) from the Christmas Pinecones and I really liked the look of layering the two dies together to create a fuller effect.

For the background I used several strips of Parakeet Party Cardstock. This is a great way to use up your scrap cardstock and they don’t even need to be the same width as I’ve done here. Having them at different widths can have visual appeal too.
