Ornamental Pine

This Christmas I have loooooved playing with the Ornamental Pine stamp set. It is such an elegant and pretty set to use. I had already used it for my Curvy Keepsake boxes, then I saw a card sketch idea using partial embossing (from Gina K) and knew this stamp set would look lovely with that.

This card has a Very Vanilla card base, and then I used the Delicate Designs embossing folder to place the line of embossing across the bottom third of the card, leaving enough room to stamp my sentiment in Cherry Cobbler along the bottom. I then stamped my pine cone in Chocolate Chip and masked it off so I could stamp Garden Green pine needles across it and this allowed it to pop off the page a little.


 Finally I spritzed the top of the card with a bit of glitter spray (not Stampin' Up!) and my card was ready to be posted out :)

You can still purchase the Ornamental Pine stamp set for another week but after that, it will be gone.
