I am so in love with the Patterned Pines Hostess set from the Holiday Mini Catalog!
I started off my card with a Whisper White card base scored on the top. I added a layer of Old Olive followed Real Red cardstock I textured using the Filligree plate from Texturz Backgrounds 1. (Hint: to really make your texture POP use this layer from bottom to top: Multipurpose Platform, texture plate, cardstock, silicone impressions pad, cutting plate; with multipurpose platform all the way closed...it will be hard to crank through but worth the elbow grease!)
My Patterned Pines were stamped in Real Red and Old Olive and snipped out with my Paper Snips. I popped my red tree with Stampin' Dimensionals. A Real Red Grosgrain Ribbon wraps around my Old Olive and Whisper White mat and a Sentiment from Snow Swirled stamped in Old Olive finishes it off!
