 I've used a three different pine dies from Impression Obsession to make this swag. 
The Pine Branch die was used for my base. I die cut the Pine Pair several times in a heavy weight paper. The pinecone dies are from the Pine Sprig Cluster.


 Distress inks were used to highlight how beautifully detailed the embossed design is on the pinecones.


Here is another card using the same dies. The Season's Greetings was made using the Holiday Bottom Word Edgers. Love these dies and there are three different greeting to this set!
