Ornamental Pine

Today's card was intended as a birthday card for someone, but I guess the idea that popped into my head ended up looking more like a Christmas card, so that's what I went with. lol  Anyway it's Friday so you know that means it's time for the Friday Mashup challenge which I happen to be hostessing this week. :)  My challenge is kind of fun I think, so I hope you'll give it a try. 

Create a project using the "Diamond Dust Technique" Tutorial Here

Create a project using the colors "Island Indigo, Garden Green & Rich Razzleberry (or similar colors if you don't have these exact colors). 

or Mash it Up! and create a project "using the colors above and the Diamond Dust Technique".

Sorry there are so many pictures, but I was trying to get one that actually looked like the card when I look at it so you could see what I was seeing such luck!  lol  I guess I'll let you choose which one you like the best. 

Make sure you head over to the Friday Mashup HERE to check out all the fun cards made, and to play along too.  We always love to see what everyone creates. :)

I almost forgot to add where my sketch came from!  I haven't had much time to enter other challenges, so I managed to last Sunday with one card and I did for today's card too. :)  The sketch challenge over at the Paper Craft Crew challenge #117 looked like a good fit for the different colors I was using, and I'm glad I played along because I really like how this card turned out. :)

Just a bit of glimmer in the above pic, but the one below hardly has any at all.  Now why can't that camera take a picture the way I see it through my eyes. lol

I had to take one pic of it a little closer.  It sure isn't shimmery like the card.  It actually looks like it has white in it a little bit.  Oh well, better luck for me next time. :)

Thanks for looking and have a great day!

Supplies used on this card:

Built for Free Using: My Stampin Blog


  1. Sara, I love how the pine cone pops out from the stamped image. I also like the strips of Island Indigo and Rich Razzleberry with the little candy dots on top!

  2. Beautiful card Sara! Love all the beautiful glitter and your colour choices! Thanks for joining us at The Paper Craft Crew this week :-)

  3. Beautiful card, Sara! Love the addition of the candy dots. I always forget to use those, but they are perfect here!

    1. Thanks, Naomi. I love using candy dots, but we only get 10 per pack so I started making my own although I didn't use them on this card. Just punch out little circles and put crystal effects on them. Let them dry overnight and you have candy dots the color of the card stock that you used. :)


Thank you for your comments. I read everyone! If you ever wonder how I've made something I'd be glad to let you know! Sara
