I adore the Ornamental Pine set in the Holiday Mini Catalogue and have set myself a challenge of making as many different cards and projects as I can with the set to show how versatile it is. . .
In making the cards I made a basic version of each card and then added some additional card stock layers and embellishments to make the card a little more luxe.
Here are today's shares:Holiday Cattie. I stamped the leaves in Garden Green to match the designer series paper and the pine cones in Early Espresso on Crumb Cake card stock (which I fussy cut out).
To dress the second card up I used a Cherry Cobbler Seam Binding Ribbon and mounted the whole card on Garden Green card stock. The "Happy Wonderful Christmas" is from the Wondrous Wreath stamp set.
The ribbons and the layering once again set the cards apart. I used the Cherry Cobbler Linen Ribbon from the Holiday Mini Catalogue on the left hand card compared with the Burlap Ribbon on the other. The sentiment "merry & bright" is from the Good Greetings set which was a promotional stamp set for hostesses in October and the "Christmas Wishes" is from the Ornamental Pine set.
Holiday Mini Catalogue.
You will see that the base card in both instances is Cherry Cobbler mounted with Early Espresso and Gold Foil card stock. Both have been mounted on an Early Espresso card to frame the card.
Hopefully you have found some inspiration. I will be back tomorrow with another three sets of cards.
