Hi everyone! I'm in Christmas card mode now and saw this great photo on the Card Concept's blog. What a beautiful wreath! I was looking through my Christmas stamps and dies and found a die that I thought would be perfect for this challenge. I really need to participate in other challenges too instead of just creating for my design teams. I'm getting lazy!
I started by sponging some Oxide inks on Bristol paper in pinks and blues. Then I die cut this gorgeous wreath from it. It came out just as I imagined! That doesn't happen often! I just bought the Concord & 9th release and this ribbon die and sentiment were perfect for the middle of the wreath. I embossed the sentiment in platinum embossing powder. As I was laying everything out, I decided to impress the main panel with a linen impression plate. Then I saw these snowflakes that were die cut from the die and added them as accents instead of throwing them out. I sprayed the whole thing with shimmer spritz. I think I would call this Clean and Simple according to the Card Concept's definitions.
Thanks for stopping by!
