Pine cones a go-go

This is the final Christmas in July project and one of my favourites, because I just love trees, shabby chic and River Rock!

We stamped in Always Artichoke, but you’ll see I managed to sneak in some Old Olive cardstock! I’d invested in a 1 3/8” Square Punch for this class which certainly made preparation easier for me, and I’m loving the punch, too.

I love the background on this card. It’s stamped at random with the large pine tree from Lovely as a Tree in River Rock, then spattered with the Colour Spritzing Tool using an Always Artichoke marker.

Stamps: Autumn Days, Lovely as a Tree
Cardstock: River Rock, Early Espresso, Real Red, Old Olive, Very Vanilla
Ink: Always Artichoke, River Rock
Accessories: Always Artichoke Marker, Colour Spritzer, Basic Rhinestones, 1/8” Taffeta Ribbon – Real Red
