Merry Christmas Wreath

Posting this quickly as we’re getting ready to head out and watch The Hunger Games (Mockingjay Part 1)!

Here’s a super simple and easy Christmas card using the Wondrous Wreath stamp set and matching framelits. There is quite a bit of texture and dimension to this card though to give it a little more pop.

Merry Christmas Wreath

I used the sketch from Pals Paper Arts and the color combo from Nacho Average Challenge to pull this together. The base is Early Espresso and the first layer is a Very Vanilla which was embossed with the Stylish Stripes embossing folder. To give the wreath added dimension, I die cut the lower layer and then stamped and die cut the top layer in Garden Green. Dimensionals adhere the two pieces together and I slightly rotated the top layer to make the wreath look fuller. I did the same treatment to the bow to lift it off the wreath. The sentiment from Endless Wishes was heat embossed with gold embossing powder on the Cherry Cobbler strip, and a Very Vintage vanilla button completed the card.
