Whimsy Inspiration - Pinecone Sentiments and Die

Hi Everyone!
I have some Whimsy inspiration to share with you today!

Today I've made a quick card using this great new 'Pine Cone Sentiments' set from Raindrop Echo Designs and matching 'Pine Cone Die', both available at the Whimsy Stamps store.

The patterned paper is from the Kaisercraft 'Yuletide' 6 x 6 pad, and I inked the edges with Distress Ink 'Frayed Burlap', and bordered with dark brown Bazzill cardstock.

I stamped one plain and one sentiment pine cone onto kraft cardstock with Memento Rich Cocoa ink, and trimmed around. I die cut 2 Pine cone dies from dark brown cardstock, distressed with ink, and layered them before attaching with mounting foam onto the card.

I added a button and a seam binding bow below the pinecones, and a piece of lace finished with a strip of the seam binding. Both the 'Moss' seam binding and gorgeous cream Guipure lace are from Wild Orchid Crafts. The final touch is a couple more buttons.
Here is a close up of the pinecone sentiment stamps showing the layered dies...

Hope you like it!
