Happy Holidays


Good Morning!  This card was made for the challenge at Merry Monday to create a Christmas Card  with a rustic look using creams, tans and browns. I kept my card fairly simple using a Wood Grain Pattern Paper from Crate Paper as the background attached to a Ivory Card Base.  I embossed the paper with Darice EF Wood Grain to give some rustic texture.  I attached to this some Pine Branches cut from a glossy lustrous Oyster Pearl CS with Impression Obsession Die.  I topped this with a Pine Cone and Branch stamped with MFP Greetings of the Season  in Memento Rich Cocoa ink on Ivory CS and fussy cut. I also gave some shine to the cone by heat embossing with Clear EP.   The sentiment was cut from the Oyster Pearl CS with Cheery Lynn dies. This was an easy card to make but I like the details.
