DOstamperSTARS Thursday Challenge #196: Paisleys & Posies Bundle

Holiday Catalog Sneak Peek: Christmas Pines & Pretty Pines (plus 9/1 updates)

Here's a card I designed for a local swap for the Stamp Share for Leaders group using new products from the Holiday Catalog available tomorrow, September 1st.  This group always does a fabulous job.  I'm looking forward to receiving their swaps and sharing them with you...soon!

The sights and smells of the holiday season will spread quickly with this nature-inspired stamp set, Christmas Pines and coordinating Pretty Pines Thinlits (available in a bundle as well).

Dawn's Pretty Pines Card - 5 easy steps

  • Adhere two 3" x 2" coordinating pieces of Presents & Pinecones Designer Series Paper to 4" x 5-1/4" piece of Emerald Envy cardstock, then adhere to folded 4-1/4" x 11" Mint Macaron card base.
  • Stamp smaller pinecone from Christmas Pines stamp set with Early Espresso ink onto Soft Suede cardstock.
  • Using Pretty Pines Thinlits, die cut pine cone, pine needles (Emerald Envy) and berries (Cherry Cobbler).  Adhere to card
  • Staple 10" of gold Bakers Twine (from new Baker's Twine Trio Pack) next to pinecone and tie in a bow.

The Presents and Pinecones Designer Series Paper has several patterns that pair together well for this style of card.  Having fun playing with the patterns!
