Another set of Christmas cards for my stash!! I trimmed the glittery pinecone backgrounds from a large piece of gift wrap that came off of one our gifts this past season. I was able to trim about 15 or so 4" x 5.25" pieces. I used six to create these cards. These cards feature red card bases, the glittery green and white pinecone gift wrap, colour printed image of a cardinal, wide black satin ribbon and layered greetings. The top set has stamped Merry Christmas greetings in red that are punched with a small oval punch (SU). All of them are layered onto a larger oval punchie (SU). Two are layered onto a scalloped oval punchie (SU) as well. I have pierced the scallops on the large oval punchies and added faux stitching/dots on the large ovals. All are mounted with 3D foam tape as are the cardinal images.
This set has laser printed greetings layered onto red cardstock. All are sponged a bit on the edges. I trimmed the middle one with scallop decorative scissors and paper pierced the scallops. The last one has three little clear rhinestones on the end of the greeting.
I am happy to be on track for getting my Christmas cards done by the end of the year!!!!
I will have more cards with this pinecone paper as a background. Will be inventing a different sketch with different elements!! Therese
