Copper Pinecones & Pineneedle Christmas Card

So, who needs Christmas cards that are straightforward to make and uses a clever trick that really finishes your cards to high standard? Without too much effort?

Hopefully this card will tick all those boxes. I love the little fir branch stamp that comes in the Peace This Christmas stamp set (Annual). Out of all the stamps that I own (and that’s a lot!), this has to be the most versatile one. You can layer it up in shades of green. You can make a wreath or a funny bush thing with a hole in the middle. Check the link below for that one and yes, it looks nice! I’ve even used it as a background stamp.

To give today’s card a little extra detail, I fussy cut the copper pinecones – but you can also just stamp them directly onto your card and heat emboss them there.


If you have a few of these to make then I would suggest you do each stage in batches – cut all your cardstock, do all your stamping, heat emboss, trimming and then assembly. I promise you, this is the quickest and least stressful way of making many cards!

Thank you for dropping by today. If you have enjoyed this card, please subscribe to my blog on the right and/or my YouTube channel so you don’t miss any future projects. I have a few more Christmas ones and a gift idea on the way. You can also find me on Facebook 🙂
