Greetings stampers, What a cold, windy, rainy day. Not the kind of day that’s arthritis friendly. Wanted so badly to crawl into bed and stay there but too much to do. I have a class tomorrow so I wrapped up loose ends today. I have been working on the card I’m sharing a little at a time. Finally got it finished. Parts of it were CASE’d but I put my own twist on it. I started with a base card of Old Olive CS. I ran a piece of Crum Cake CS through the Big Shot with the Pinewood Planks Dynamic Textured Impressions embossing folder. I dragged my Chocolate Chip ink pad over the embossed piece to give it some pop. I took apart a few box flaps to find the piece of corrugated cardboard on the center of the card. I swiped this piece with Chocolate Chip ink also. My husband was quick to point out that you can buy rolls of corrugated cardboard as I was peeling the box flaps. I pointed out this was a lot less expensive. I have an accordion folder with scraps of CS. I grabbed a few green pieces from there and used the Pretty Pines Thinlits to cut out six pine branches. I used Copper foil for the little berry branches. I stamped the pine cones from the Christmas Pines stamp set with Soft Suede ink on Crumb Cake CS. I used the thinlits to cut these out too. I used Tombow, mono adhesive to attach everything to the cardboard background. A simple red bow is the only embellishment. I had fun concocting this card I hope you enjoy it.
PAWS TO PONDER
Hugs and happy stamping, MB
