This card was a lot of work, but worth the effort.  I started with the background trees dsp which covers the entire card front.  Next, I stamped the pine branches from SU Ornamental Pine on a piece of vellum and set it aside to dry.

The greeting was done using a vertical stamp with an ornament at the bottom which I cut off.  (Sorry, I don't remember the company.)  I cut it down to a banner and used it horizontally.  After stamping two pine cones and fussy cutting them, I assembled the card.

First, I glued the vellum panel down and added a strip of dsp across the top of it.  Then I added the pine cones, jute and greeting as shown.  Finally, I added the SU brad on the bottom corner.

This card took about an hour from start to finish, hence the "one of a kind" label.  The time spent includes the design idea and all the changes I made along the way.  A second one would probably take about 15 minutes, but I'm not up for that with all the cards I still need to make.  So far, I have 75 out of 100 done!
