Pine Branch Christmas Card

Created this Christmas Card using Tim Holtz Pine Branch embossing folder. On the embossing used TH sander & TH Distress Inks. Used Pine Branch scrapbook paper to complement embossing. Stamped TH sentiment. Added ribbon.

I'm pleased with the look of the TH Distress Inks on this. I like the masculine nature look of this.
