Ornamental Pine is one of those stamp sets that is just so classically beautiful, it will live among my craft supplies for years to come. Here I paired it with Burlap Ribbon and some [retired] Early Espresso core-dinations cardstock sanded to show the Woodgrain embossing.
After the pine bough was embossed in white on Crumb Cake cardstock, I sponged over it with Crumb Cake ink to add shading and depth. I also added some falling snow with the Gorgeous Grunge splatters inked in Whisper White craft ink. Some dazzling diamonds added just the right amount of sparkle! Love this pine cone--especially when it's fussy-cut and popped up. With a little Linen Thread bow it coordinates nicely with the Early Espresso background and the rustic texture of the Burlap Ribbon.
