Striped Pinecone Ornaments


The background paper for this card was made using the Tim Holtz Sizzix Birch embossing folder.  After embossing the white paper, I went over the embossing with a Vintage Photo distress marker.  I tried swiping an ink pad over the paper but it left a lot of streaks that I didn't want.  Maybe I'm too heavy handed.

I tore the top edge of the paper to try to make it look more like birch from a tree.  The ornaments were cut first with the red and green foiled cardstock then backed with the gold.  I hand traced the gold background ornament and manually cut it out to fit the top layer.

Products Used:

Frantic Stamper Striped Pinecone Ornament
