Inspiration...

With the wind howling out there today, it sounds and feels like we should be in 6 feet of snow.  But luckily, it's just the wind and rain!  So since the wind put me in the mood, here's a card I created for a class at Kept Creations in early December.


I used some new product (for me) on this card.  I started with a cream based card and added a piece of handmade gold embossed paper.  The paper was a bit dull in color so I boosted it with a spritz of Goosebumps and a smattering of gold glitter.  Next up was a labels die by Spellbinders and a sentiment by Papertrey Ink.  The pinecone was made using the Punch Bunch pear punch and the leaves were punched from a Martha Stewart punch.  I then dusted the pinecone with the new Flowersoft Glitter Frosting (Hint of Green).  The final touch was some gold ball embellishments.

So, I hope this is the closest I come to "snow" for a very long time, but I just thought you might enjoy a Christmas card to get you in the mood.

Ciao for now!

Ciao Bella!

DeeDee, this is gorgeous! I can only imagine seeing it in real life. DD, it needs a bow under the pinecone. LOL
