Christmas music and the smell of pine, ahhhh. I began today’s card by using a large Christmas Pinecone Die to cut from Pear Pizzazz Cardstock. Then, I sponged Mossy Meadow Ink on the die-cut, giving it a variation in color.

I snipped the large die-cut into three sections, so I can make two more cards from the extra pieces.

Christmas Pinecones


Next, I cut solid pinecones from Cinnamon Cider Cardstock, using three Christmas Pinecone Dies. With tiny dots of glue I adhered the pinecones to the back of the Mossy Meadow die-cut, and placed them on Dimensionals.


For the background, I embossed a layer of Basic White Cardstock with the Merry Melody Embossing Folder. This embossing folder is my Host Code gift for the month of September, and you can see the details below. Then, I glued the music layer to a Cherry Cobbler card base, 8 1/2″ X 5 1/2″, folded at 4 1/4″.


Prior to embossing, I stamped “Merry Christmas” in Cherry Cobbler Ink. Don’t you love the font? It’s from the Heartfelt Wishes Stamp Set, which has other holiday sentiments you should check out in my Product List. 

A  few Matt Decorative Dots were added as a final touch.



I was inspired by TGIF.
