An Ornamental Pine Ornament Card

This is not just an ornament card, it's actually an ornament on a card.  It's difficult to see but there is a hole in the dotted layer of card stock where the Baker's Twine is tied to the ornament and the card.  So once you give this pretty card out, the one receiving it will be able to remove the ornament and hang it on the tree!  Terri is SO clever!!!

The "Ornamenal Pine" set was used to make this card.  The pines were stamped first using the Mossy Meadow ink.  Then the pine cone was stamped using Early Espresso.  Another pine cone was stamped using Early Espresso ink again but this pine cone was cut out.  Then pine cone was covered in Crystal Effects.  The Crystal Effects actually turned the pine cone green.  But it was a perfect look for it!  The wet pine cone was set aside to dry.

Then the pine needle image was punched out and then the bulb part was punched out.  One of the tag punches was used to do that.  I had never seen that technique done before.  It was SO clever!!!

The pieces were assembled and added to the card as I described above.

This is such a fun and neat idea!

Thank you SO much for visiting today,
