This is the top of the outside of one of the cards. I cut the pine needle border twice, flipping around so they are not the same cut. Add some tiny snow flakes with Fiskars punch.

Just fooling around, made one with a red background and embossed it and used Brilliance moonlight white over the embossed area. This was my first one I did not add two pine needles borders, I really like it with the two borders.

Pat, so beautiful!! I love all the die cuts you used! The pine needles and Christmas lights are gorgeous! And I love how you decorate the inside of your card just as beautifully as the outside.

I don't know if it's the photo or something you did but the embossed papers have a very nice shine to them, almost glossy. Did you do that? Whatever the answer I think your cards look amazing. Beautiful die cuts used and it never stops to amaze me what a change of color can do to a design. Colors have a big impact...
