Warm Merry Monday Wishes

Yep, here I am, making a Christmas card. It's a handy way to get out of a crafting slump! I turned to the current Merry Monday challenge for inspiration. 

Thanks to my crafting friend Ardyth, I have a new wreath stamp to play with, so I thought this would be a perfect way to make use of it. 

I used three similar green inks to layer the wreath. To make sure the berries showed up, I stamped them in red ink as well as embossing them in red. If you squint, you can almost see that the white panel is embossed with a woodgrain texture. 
February's not even over yet, and I have three, count 'em three, Christmas cards! :P 

Supplies: white cardstock, Stampin' Up red glimmer paper, Studio Calico Wonderland patterned paper, Hero Arts Color Layering Wreath, Versafine onyx black, Simon Says Stamp green leaf, Stampin' Up garden green & Memento cottage ivy inks, Ranger ruby red & Zing clear embossing powders, My Favorite Things blueprints 24 & Paper Smooches baby bow dies, Marvy Uchida corner rounding punch, pop dot tape

Pin It Now!
