Directions for the In The Pines Season’s Greetings card:
  1. Texture emboss the 5-1/4” x 4” Shaded Spruce cardstock using the Subtle 3D texture embossing folder. Attach to the card base front using strong adhesive.
  2. Layer the designer series paper atop the Whisper White cardstock. Attach to the texture embossed layer near the top of the embossed piece – leave room to add the sentiment banner.
  3. Select pine tree die from the Pine Woods Dies and cut pine from Whisper White cardstock. Die cut tree in the center of the oval. Attach to designer series paper using Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  4. Stamp sentiment onto strip of Whisper White cardstock using Shaded Spruce Classic Ink Pad. Punch ends to create banner.  Attach to card using dimensionals.
  5. Embellish tree trunk at base with a gold twine bow (attach with glue dot).

Using this basic design, you can change the colors,  switch the pattern of designer series paper to create an entirely different look.  I’ll be sharing more cards using the In The Pines Bundle so be sure to follow my blog.
