Snowy Pinecones

 I seem to be jumping right into winter with my card today!

I made my pinecones and pine cough using Botanicuts: Pine Bough Dies from The Greetery.  I layered the pieces of the pine cone and then colored along the top edges of each piece of the pine cone with orange and brown colored pencils. I layered two pine boughs over the wood branch and inked over parts with Evergreen Bough Distress Ink.  I added Distress Grit Paste: Snowfall to bits of the pinecones and bough.

I adhered the bough onto the woodgrain patterned paper and the cones over the bough with foam dots.  I added a Remnant Rub: Christmas sentiment .  I masked the bottom half of the card and splattered the top with a white POSCA pen.

I'm linking my card to:
