Ornamental Pine Christmas Cards !

Good Morning ! 
I love traditional Christmas cards which feature Winter greenery ! When I was growing up in the sixties many of the cards were covered in holly, ivy and pine and I wanted to re-create this retro style and bring it up to date !! I'm using a lot of embossing powder on these Christmas cards - it gives a luxurious feel to the cards and makes them a little more special ! 

This is a very strong image and doesn't need much adding to it ! The smaller card is cut away around the design and then backed with vellum ( just attached on the fold ) to add a little dimension . This is my favourite stamp set of the season and I will be using it a lot more !! 
Thanks for stopping by ! Happy Christmas crafting !
