Friends and Family At Christmas

Greetings from the cold northeast USA from Lynda Joy.  It is winter here, and Christmas is but a little over a week away!  I decided to use this amazing Pinecones stamp on my card today.  I love, love, love this background stamp from Technique Junkies.  It has so many possibilities!
For my card today, I stamped 'pinecones' onto a green piece of linen card stock.  I used a circle die to cut out a large circle for the focal point of my card.  

I used an embossing pen to add embossing ink to different areas of the pine cones, then embossed with copper embossing powder.

I layered this onto an A2 green card, onto which I have a panel of copper paper, and a strip of dark green, along with a sheer copper ribbon.  

For the sentiment, I used a verse from the Gifts of Christmas set.  I embossed the verse with copper embossing powder, then die cut the shape, and layered it onto another die cut piece. 

I used foam tape to attach both the focal image and the verse panel to the card.  For accents, I used my Cropodile to punch some small circle shapes from glittered fun foam.  
A pretty copper bow finishes off my card.
