Ornamental Pines in blues–Part 1

Amanda Bates, The Craft Spa, 078
Loving my Ornamental Pines.
The first card is a CASE of the card sample on page 27 of the Stampin’ Up! Autumn Winter Catalogue. It is even nicer in the flesh on its Pool Party base…. I am so glad I decided to make it… though white embossing on a single layer card does unfortunately make the card warp – so come back tomorrow for my solution to that problem!

But the second card caused the most WOWs here in the Craft Room…. that huge bauble just appears to physically leap out of the pine sprays.

Though I have to laugh… as I had declared this card a reject card!! (won’t bore you with the whys!! There are a few.. ) But there was such a reaction to it … I decided it was daft not to share it here…. But I do hope to have a remake sometime soon….. in the meantime … get out those masks & sponges!!
And even more laughing at myself… as I look at this photo…. I have just realised that this fits this week’s Weekly Team Challenge theme of Snow…so I am now off to quickly post it in  the Challenge folder…..   so some of you will now have seen this already!!                                                                                                             
Bye for now….
