Presents & Pinecones Suite for #GDP054

Hi Crafters!

Playing along with challenges is such a fun way to get out of your normal way of doing things! If you haven't played along with a challenge lately, you can check out my list of them.

Today I played along with the Global Design Project #GDP054 & this is what I have come up with - I've been wanting to use the gorgeous Presents & Pinecones suite from the Holiday Catalog since I got them about 2 weeks ago & I thought this would be the perfect layout for it!

I have used a Thick Whisper White cardstock base for both cards, along with the Pretty Pines Thinlits, cut in Gold Foil on my Big Shot. The Precision Base is recommended for the Pretty Pines Thinlits as they are quite delicate, so you will get a cleaner cut if you use it. I have also used the Die Brush & foam mat to get all the little bits out afterwards. It would take forever to get all those little bits out otherwise haha!

Then I have used the Pine Bough Embossing Folder & the Triple Banner Punch for the banner. The paper is from the Presents & Pinecones Designer Series Paper & I have used the matching Presents & Pinecones Cardstock pack which comes with Thick Whisper White, Cherry Cobbler & Emerald Envy A4 sheets, 8 of each for just $14! You can only just see it in these pics, but the Cherry Cobbler DSP I have used on the second card has faint snowflakes on it. It's really pretty up close!

I have also used the Gold Sequin Trim in the embellishments & added a little bow made with the Silky Taffeta Ribbon Combo Pack which comes with Emerald Envy & Cherry Cobbler. On this second card, I have also added a couple of strips of the Presents & Pinecones Washi Tape. This second card is the one I have entered at #GDP054.

On the inside, I have used the sentiment & images from the Christmas Pines stamp set in Cherry Cobbler & Emerald Envy inks.
