Hanging Some Greens or Gold or White Pines.....

White Pines it is!  The challenge over at Heart 2 Heart is to create something using CTMH goodies from he Seasonal Holiday Expressions Book.  Obviously, I'm going Christmas with the White Pines.

I designed this in Design Space; hopefully, this screen shot will explain it!

I heat embossed the cut out holly with gold embossing powder and glued it to the inside of the card placing it through the front like a puzzle piece.  When it is closed, the holly is flat in there.

I used red gems to make the berries and tied up the front tag with Cranberry Baker's twine.

My card is off to decorate these challenges:

Bitten by the Bug 2:  Hanging of the Greens
Heart 2 Heart:  'Tis the Season
