The Christmas card I’m sharing with you today was inspired by this card made by Zoe Tant. I’ve made a few changes and instead of stamping the Pinecones I have used the die cut versions. I love these detailed dies.
To make this card I started out with and A5 piece of Evening Evergreen cardstock which was scored and folded in half to make my base card. Next, I cut a piece of dsp slightly smaller than the card front. Before adhering this to the base card with glue, I cut a Stitched Rectangle die from the centre. This piece was then glued to a piece of Evening Evergreen cardstock, slightly larger than the die piece, before mounting to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals. This is a great way to utilise your dsp.
Next, I added Adhesive Sheet to a piece of Crumb Cake cardstock and die cut the detailed Pinecone die pieces. The solid Pinecone base was cut using Early Espresso cardstock. I then removed the Adhesive Sheet backing and layered the Pinecone pieces. Next, I die cut the large background die in Evening Evergreen and Soft Succulent and trimmed off the leaf bits.
I then stamped the sentiment on Evening Evergreen cardstock using Versamark ink, and heat embossed using White embossing powder before fussy cutting. Next, I added Stampin’ Dimensionals near the ends of the sentiment and mounted to the card. I then used glue to adhere the bottom of the Pinecones, tucking them slightly under the sentiment. I added some glue to the leaf pieces and tucked them behind the Pinecones before adding a few Champagne Rhinestones as my final touch.
