Ornamental Pine Birthday Card …

Hello Stampin’ Friends,

It’s a bit “chilly” out today but I am grateful that the snow blast that hit our western states did not make it to Wisconsin – or should I say… my neck of the woods! Northern Wisconsin got snow.

Today I am going to share with you the Ornamental Pine Birthday card as promised, and my favorite of this weeks “Weekly Deals”.

Let’s begin with the card ….


My colors are based off the designer paper pack “Trim the Tree” which includes the Garden Green that I used as my base and my frame. The designer paper is cut 4 x 5-1/4″ … then cut a Whisper White and Garden Green slightly smaller. The white you will stamp on, and the green will be a frame!

Align the Garden Green cardstock behind the designer paper and using the “Oval Collections” Framelits … you will cut through both pieces.


Take away the Garden Green and place the Trim the Tree Designer paper back onto the BigShot … using the “next size up” oval, align and cut.  Now when you place your Garden Green back behind the designer paper … you will have a frame!

Just to recap ….


Next, you will ink up your Pine with Garden Green ink and color in the stem with the Chocolate Chip marker and stamp onto the Whisper White piece you cut earlier. Stamp the pine cone in Chocolate Chip and cut out… yes, you have to fussy cut – sorry!

My “Happy Birthday” greeting comes from the “Making Spirits Bright” … a great set you can use all year long, and the greeting size is perfect!


OK … now for some more fun, let’s talk “Weekly Deals”! My favorite from this weeks bunch of deals is the …. Daffodil Delight Seam Binding! We had some great guesses, but no one guessed it right 😦

Don’t fret though ladies because I told you that I was going to be full of surprises this year, so each of you who responded will get a bolt of the Daffodil Seam Binding!!

I want you to know why I fell in love with it.  It is so easy to work with, and ribbon is always a great way to embellish a card without breaking the bank. Congratulations Olivia, Cheryl, Barb & Nancy!  🙂

Thanks so much for stopping by and stay warm!
