Pinecone Decoration

It's "Christmas in July" for the Stampendous Design Team this week and we are so excited to share some of their great products with you! Lucky for me, Stampendous supplies team members with those great products so we can create inspirational samples for you and them! For the July 2017 catalog we also received some fabulous papers from BoBunny. Thanks BoBunny, I LOVE your paper!

Today I'm sharing my favorite image (ok, ONE of my favorite images!) from the BRAND NEW images from our July 2017 release called Pinecone Decoration, P310. It is such a classic representation of the holidays!  I paired it here with BoBunny's beautiful Wild Berry Vintage paper.

This is perfect for a Southerner like me to send to northern friends. I have pine cones like this in my yard right now. Wouldn't it be cool to make a pine cone decoration like this and send with this card! Thank you for the gorgeous inspiration.
