Christmas Wreath

Happy Halloween Everyone!  What better way to kick off a Halloween celebration than with a…ummm…Christmas card?! Haha!  All of the Halloween festivities occurred this past weekend in my area so I actually almost forgot today was Halloween!  In any event, I hope you have a safe and happy little Halloween today!

Despite the fact that it’s Halloween, I want to share this Christmas card with all of you!  Did you see the wreath stamp in the holiday catalog? It’s one of my favorites mostly because I can create elegant, vintage style cards with it! For this card, I started out with a piece of old olive cardstock for the base of the card. Cut a 5 1/4 x 4 inch piece of early espresso cardstock and emboss it with the petals of plenty folder. Cut out the big apothecary framelit design from a 4 x 3 inch piece of the Seasons of Style Designer Series Paper and adhere to the top of the embossed early espresso piece. Stamp the wreath image, using old olive ink, onto a 4 x 4 inch piece of white cardstock. Cut out the image using the windows framelit. 

Put together a little bow using one of the antique brads and some cherry cobbler seam binding ribbon….secure it to the bottom of the wreath. I used dimensional to secure the cut out wreath image to the card. Stamp your sentiment and cut out with the word window, then matte it with old olive cardstock cut from the modern label punch. Put the entire card together and then add the little holly berries using a bottle of the cherry cobbler dazzling details. Let it dry.  You can find all of these supplies and more out on my website!  Have fun creating!
