Ornamental Pine


Here is a card using the Ornamental Pine set that I am entering in two challenges today. The sketch is from 52 Christmas Card Throwdown and the colour combo of Pool Party, Very Vanilla and Baked Brown Sugar is for Nacho Average Challenge #114. This is a much bigger card than I usually make, using a whole piece of A4. I have resist embossed the pine needles with clear embossing powder and have then sponged a background using Pool Party. The pine cones look more three-dimensional in real life, as they are stuck on with foam pads. I have used Gorgeous Grunge to stamp a Pool Party/silvery spattered background. I do love spattery looking cards and pine cones, so it's the perfect card for me really! Hope you like it, April x
