Golden Pine Cone Holiday Card
by Sara Cook

Hi everyone. I have a holiday card featuring the Large Pine Cone and Gentle Pine Needle Sprig.   


Large Pine Cone:

Die cut the Large Pine Cone from a medium warm brown from the Earth Neutral paper pad.  Ink blend each die cut from the top with Distress Ink Gathered Twigs to create depth.  Use your finger to add from wax metal bronze wax paint to give it some shine. In the diamond shape ends add glue then sprinkle with Distress Rock Candy glitter. The glue reacts with the paper giving the glitter a golden color.  This was a happy accident. After the glitter is dry, glue the pine cone together following the diagram on the back of the packaging.  


Gentle Pine Needle Sprig:

Die cut the Gentle Pine Needle Sprig out of a mid green from the Lush Green paper pad 3 times.  Color the branch with a brown marker. Making sure to color the sides of the paper to cover up the white.  I used Marvy Marker No 18, Dark Brown.  Ink blend the pine needles with Distress Ink Rustic Wilderness.  Blend from the branch out, so not to crumble the paper.  



Die cut joy with the smaller dies from the Bennet Alphabet set out of gold glitter from the Festive Glitter paper pad. 



Die cut heavy white card stock with the Pinpoint Daisy Background die.  Ink blend with Distress Oxide Aged Mahogany to create the fuzzy warm feel.  Trim down the panel to 4"x5 1/4".  Trim the same gold glitter paper as the sentiment to A2 size. Mount the background panel on the glitter paper.  I used heavy glue to make it stick.



Adhere the pine needle sprig to the right hand side and adhere the pine cone with foam tape.  In the bottom left hand side adhere the letters to spell joy.  Mount on a A2 card and add a sentiment inside.
