Welcome to the “Christmas in July” design team challenge.  I posted a project last week using the Impression Obsession Layered Pinecone set.  I couldn’t resist making another card with it for our challenge because it is my all time favorite pinecone set ever.  This time I used a red card base, a frame made using the All-in-One Frames Rectangle 2, Pine Pair and red multi loop bow.Come see how I made this pretty Christmas card using the Impression Obsession Layered Pinecone card.

Layering The Images

To start I want to share that I used Dina’s ink choices and instructions listed below to create my layered pinecones.  I stamped the base image on Eclipse masking tape and cut it out.  Using my MISTI I stamped the middle pinecone first, covered it with the mask and then repeated the steps to stamp the other two pinecones.  When I lifted my mask I did have a few little white spots on both sides of the middle pinecone so I used a mini applicator and Tan ink to lightly touch up and cover the spots.  I used a stylus and foam tip to apply Tan ink around the pinecones and then stamped in some texture using a stamp from the retired Stampin’ Up! Itty Bitty set.

IO hybrid inks: 
Layer 1 – Tan x1
Layer 2 – Tan x2
Layer 3 – Caramel x2
Layer 4 – Chocolate x2
Layer 5 – Black x1

Come check out how I made this pretty Christmas card using the Impression Obsession Layered Pinecone card.

The Frame, Pine and Berry Branches

I cut the frames and pieces the two largest sections together using double stick tape.  Next I attached the pinecone layer to the red card base using ATG adhesive and then attached the frame using mounting tape.  I cut the pine and berry branches to use to embellish the pinecones.  I applied white Nuvo Crystal drops to the berry branches and set them aside to dry.  Next I attached the pine branches to the top corner of the pinecone layer and frame using glossy accents.  I used large glue dots to attach the red multi loop bow.  Once the crystal drops were dry I tucked the berry branches in behind the bow and attached with glossy accents.

Come see how I made this festive Christmas card using the Impression Obsession Layered Pinecone card.
