A Pine Cone Christmas

This is not a difficult card to make but it is a little time consuming. The Christmas Release Technique Junkie stamp I used is called All is Calm - http://techniquejunkies.com/all-is-calm/.

I used an embossing folder with black card stock.  Then I painted the pine needles and the pine cone with Smooch paints.  I used several shades of green Smooch paints.

I stamped the saying on green paper with Versamark ink and covered it with detail gold embossing powder - then heat set. In real life the gold embossing powder really stands out!  I punched out the saying and made two punches of the gold card stock. I cut those in half both vertically and horizontally so that I could layer the gold pieces behind the green card stock.  A cool trick, right?

This is just such a lovely card it doesn't need any other embellishments!

Don't forget that all of the Technique Junkie Christmas release stamps are on sale for 15% off through October 10!

Happy stamping and get inky!

Indeed it doesn't need extra embellishments and such a labour of love. Very, very pretty.
