Christmas Pines Stampin' Up!

Hello Friends,

As soon as I saw this week's Freshly Made Sketches, I immediately thought "wreath".  The only question was which wreath.  In the end, I decided to go with my tried and true Christmas Pines stamps and Pretty Pines dies.  These stamps and dies have been around for several years now and they are a must have for my Craft Room.  Plus, I love the smell of pines, they make me think Christmas and happy memories. 

 I'll talk about today's Christmas Card first, but stay tuned, because I'll also share a few blasts from the past made with the Christmas Pines stamps and Pretty Pines dies.

 The wreath was quite easy to fashion.  I started by heat embossing in Gold my simple joys sentiment on a Cherry Cobbler Circle.  The die-cut pines are quite flexible, so I simply bent and glued layers in a circle around my sentiment.

 I used just a little artistic license using the 2 pine cones and a bundle of mistletoe for the bottom 3 circles on this week's card sketch.  There are several different pines cones in the Pretty Pines dies and the all have lovely texture.  I cut 2 from Early Espresso Card Stock.  The mistletoe was cut from Old Olive Card Stock and the berries are simply Pearl Basic Jewels.  My new Take a Pick Tool made applying them a breeze.
