Rustic Christmas

Hello Classy Friends! Diane here with you today. I have been in the mood to make Christmas cards lately. Must be the cooler air and the fact the trees are bare that is making me think of the holidays fast approaching.

If you are like me, you make your cards as early as you can before the season sneaks upon you and you have no time for anything!

I love this newer die by Memory Box called Pinecone Frame. This die cuts a negative, a bit different from most dies. I cut it using paper from Authentique Believe 6 x 6 paper pad. Before I adhered it to my card stock, I sponged Tim Holtz Distress Inks Brushed Corduroy and Walnut Stain under the places where the pine cones would be.

I cut it a second time on a scrap piece of paper to get the brown branch, I also cut several Memory Box Pine Needles, gluing them down where I wanted them, then adhering my branch on top of them.

I used a stamp from the JustRite Inner Thoughts set for my sentiment. The card was finished with twine from the Doodlebug Doodle Twine - Christmas Assortment and a jingle bell from my stash.
