Stampin' Up! - Christmas Pines (spot the deliberate mistake)!

Hello, I have had such fun today - cutting out pine branches and arranging them to make this card.  I decided to make something a little shabby for a change - my last few makes have been on a white background so out came the Crumb Cake and my scuffing tool!

I love this TIEF - such a useful design and, I was so pleased that it was not retired back in June.  The folder is called Softly Falling and on this particular card I have used it to depict snow but it can be used for so much more ...

I used some white craft ink on the inside of the folder before placing my cardstock inside and embossing and then, I smooshed the ink pad around the cardstock and the edges afterwards to make the background even snowier!

I used some of the discontinued Dazzling Details in Cherry Cobbler as little berries for a bit of sparkle.

Have you seen the gorgeous Copper Foil Sheets (page 47) in the new Catalogue?



I used it to die cut my little pinecone.  To add some depth to the cone I cut out three additional layers in Crumb Cake and glued them one on top of the other.




Here is the finished card:

Of course, it was only after I had finished my card and photographed it that I realised I had made a slight mistake!  Can you spot what it is?  I will send/give a card to the first person to correctly spot it ....
