A natural pine cone Christmas

Debra Burgin 1110 Pinecone ChristmasI hear all the time from stampers that they’re not impressed with something they’ve seen in the mini.  Then they see it in person, and WOW!

That’s was my reaction the first time I saw the Quilted Satin Ribbon.  Sure, I put it on my wish list, but not until I saw Stamper Kathy’s card using it did I understand how fabulous it is.  Stampin’ Up!, please bring this ribbon back in spring colors.  Please!

Here’s my first “natural” card for the upcoming season.  I love pine cones.  We have millions, probably, just a few steps away from us.  I hope it’s not illegal to remove them from the campus.  Not that I’m saying I have, I’m just hoping.  I have a selection that I bring out every year and put in an etched bowl in living room (you’ll see it in my blog header before too long).  So this image was my first choice for this card.  The card base is Riding Hood Red, which makes Cherry Cobbler really pop.

I’m still on my Naturals Ivory kick.  I love that there are matching envelopes!

    Hi Debra! What a beautiful card! I love that you used an Autumn stamp set and made a Christmas card. I like the natural feel to this card as well. So pretty! And you right, the riding hood red really makes the cherry cobbler pop. I’ll have to remember that one. Thanks for the inspiration today!
