Country Pine

Card 3 of 7:

Country Pine - by karen @ carefree creations

Another stamp set I fell in love with: Ornamental Pine! Most of my pine bough images are small, so I easily justified the purchase of this set.

My design called for pine cones that would be the focal point. The pine cones in the stamp set were too small, so I pulled out Peaceful Wishes.

The kraft/crumb cake looking strip at the top is really the old gold paper SU carried (maybe still does??…too lazy to get my catalog from across the room).

This is the only card with ribbon, but, since the knot is small and fits between the popped up pinecones, I think it will mail fine.

Oh and the plaid is handmade (I was inspired by a Papertrey Ink Make it Monday video).

Thanks for taking a peek!
