Christmas Card for Merry Monday Chrismas Card Challenge #224 Masculine and Sisterhood of Crafters "Use some Pearls" Challenge

Happy Sunday to you all!  Can you believe it's December already?  I am finally getting my Christmas cards worked on and not a bit too soon.  Seems like every year I tell myself that I will work on them all year, but it never seems to happen.  Oh well....
Anyway, this is a card I designed using a CTMH stamp set called "Perfectly Pine".  I knew I had to have it for making cards.  I used a kraft card base and stamped the greeting (CTMH) with Cranberry ink (CTMH) in bottom right corner.  I then stamped the pine boughs with New England Ivy ink (CTMH) in the upper left corner.  I stamped the pine cones with Desert Sand ink (CTMH) and then fussy cut them out.  The bottom pine cone was just adhered flat and the top one was popped up with dimensional adhesive dots.  I then cut 2 different paper pieces from Rustic Home paper collection (CTMH) and adhered as shown.  Then I attached the loopy border sticker (retired CTMH) on top.  To finish it off I added pearls on the border sticker and a twine bow to the pinecones.  And there you have it.  Nice and simple, but my favorite of the cards I have made this year.  


Thanks for stopping by.
