Pine Wreath


This card was going to be a tag, but I decided the proportions were too large for a tag, and made a card instead.   The cone stamp wasn't inky enough on the first stamping and came out a bit patchy, so I re-inked and lined it up carefully to re-stamp, and of course was slightly off.  So I stamped off all of the cones to look the same.

CASE Study, to case this card from Angeline:


And Less is More Glamour and Glitz, to add some bling to your project (glitter or bling, something that twinkles, sparkles or shines).  What's a Christmas card without glitz?

All stamps from Stampendous SSC053 Retro Ornament Set.

  7. The pine cones look great double stamped! Don't you just love when a wonky stamped image can be rescued without having to start fresh - great save! Love the muted/earthy colors of the pine wreath and the cones.

  10. Great case, and isn't it wonderful how little 'mistakes' end up actually doing something good, like making the pinecones (LOVE them, by the way) look 3D!
