This week at Paper Players, we have a theme challenge, “Holiday Pines”. I took it to heart and made a pine branch the focal point of my card. I used the Memory Box Pinecone Frame. I lightly distressed a cream panel and die cut the frame. On the cream panel, I stamped dark green pine branches at the branch nodes. I die cut the frame a second time from dark brown cardstock (to use the branch and outside frame). I adhered the cream and dark brown die cuts to an A2 card base. I die cut the frame a third time from copper Stardream; and inlaid the pinecone pieces. I die cut the sentiment from gold and red cardstock, layering to create a shadow. As a final touch, I splattered white metallic paint on the card (as snow!).
