Celebrate with Pine Cones

Last week I finished all the cards I plan on teaching at my July 24 class. The class theme is Christmas is Coming! Today's card is the most challenging of the 4 cards.  It's a Crossover Gatefold card and it's similar to the one I shared HERE.

I think the most challenging part of this card is making the pine cones.  I splattered the sentiment piece with Fun Stampers Journey's Gold Silk which breaks up all the white.  The pine cones were die cut from FSJ's Brushed Gold paper then adhered on Cocoa Powder card stock. 

I added the red strip across the pine print paper as the cones needed to be anchored.  I will make the double bow for my class attendees as it can be intimidating.

I used my new Spellbinders' Candlewick Rectangles die set for the inside red layer. And FSJ's cool Christmas Inside & Out stamp set was great for my sentiment!

I already have a few gals signed up for this class!
And can you believe July is day after tomorrow!!
