Pinecone Frame from Chocolate Baroque

Good morning my lovelies, I'm running late with my posts so here's another Christmas card made using the gorgeous pinecone stamps from Chocolate Baroque. You can find them on Christmas Candelight  here and while you're there check out the amazing new release stamps, they are Halloween themed and they are fab!!

I used the pinecone stamps to create a frame by stamping with Memento Rich Cocoa ink, I cut around the inside of the frame with a craft knife and coloured the frame with Derwent Pencils, inking around the edges with Pine Needles distress ink. The gorgeous little scene is one of my favourite of last years Christmas stamps, its a clear stamp called Snowy Cottage, again coloured with pencils and I've also added a little glamour dust. I've layered the frame up with 3d foam, edged with a gold krylon pen and popped it all on a kraft card.

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:

Crafty Catz: Golden oldie
Creative Knockouts: anything goes
Moving along with the times: snow in summertime
Papertake Weekly: technique - distressing
Simply Papercrafts: anything goes
Wags'n'Whiskers: frame it out
Winter Wonderland: create a Scene

 have a lovely day and thanks for popping by
