A Winters Day

Todays card is more Floral Punch craft, this time its pine cones and this has been achieved with the small pear punch, you need about 20 to 25 punched out pieces, which are cup shaped and then mounted onto the prepared card.

The base layer is again some paper that has been embossed in the cuttlebug folder Snowflakes, and then mounted onto a red base card. The main stamped picture is stamped with a blue versafine inkpad and then mounted with foam tape on silver/grey mira card, this was then mounted on top of some red wired Christmas ribbon, which I had layered at the bottom of my card.

The Fir cones are created by first putting some silicone decoupage glue in a cone shape, the leaves are fern punch outs which I have arranged around the bottom of the glue shape, I then pick up the punched out pear shapes and arrange in a circle at the bottom of the cone shape, using the stalk end, this is repeated again and again in layers, but alternatively between the lower shapes/tier, to make it look more natural, at the top you will need to squeeze the shapes together more to curl them and hide the glue.

The card has then been finished of with a pre stamped greeting.
