This is the card with the greeting inserted into the envelope. The stamp set is Ornamental Pines. I know it's retired, but I never got around to using it last year so I decided to use it this year!
And this is the card showing both pieces.
I made the pine needles using the dryer sheet method. (See below). I stamped the pinecones and then glittered them up. I cut them out using one of Dave the Die Guy's dies that coordinate with the stamps set perfectly.
Stamp Set: Ornamental Pine
To make the envelope, I started with a piece of 4 1/4 x 11 paper and scored it at 5 1/2. After I folded it, I made a light tick mark on the bottom right edge 1 1/4" from the bottom. I lined that tick mark up with the top corner on my cutter and made the diagonal cut. I did the same thing for the other layers but decreased each piece by 1/4 (horizontal and vertical as well as for the tick mark).
For the dryer sheet method, I stamped the pine needles and then sprayed it with a spray adhesive. I covered it with a used dryer sheet and then applied a bit more spray adhesive. I sprinkled the Dazzling Diamonds on it, pressed it in really well and that was it!
For the pine cones, I stamped the pine cones, sprayed with some spray adhesive and sprinkled Dazzling Diamonds on them. I cut them out with dies made by Dave the Die Guy.
I made these assembly line style and that made the process go pretty quickly.
So, what do you think?
