The card for today is a simple wreath that is so quick to make. It stars the Wishes All Around Bundle to create a wreath from little Christmas trees.
The star of this card is this sweet wreath. As said above, it is from the Wishes All Around Bundle. I stamped the wreath, made from little trees, using Garden Green Ink on a piece of 3 1/4 X 3 1/4 Basic White card stock. Then I stamped three extra little trees on scrap paper. The wreath is not die cut, even though there is a die for it. But I did die cut the three little trees. And there are three of that die, which makes this so much faster! The extra little trees are added at center bottom left and right. The center one is directly over top of a tree, where the other two are offset.
The choice of a sentiment was a little difficult this time. More because of locating it. When I decided to stamp it in the center of the wreath, everything came together. This Love & Joy is from the Merriest Trees stamp set. I feel like I use this set all the time!
The first choice of papers was the wallpapaper looking piece from the Traditions of St. Nick Designer Series Paper. With the larger print, it did not matter that quite a bit is covered by the wreath layers. And it simply reminds me of Christmas. To go with a red and green theme, I chose the card base to be Thick Basic White and then a layer of Garden Green. Then I changed things up and went with Cherry Cobbler for the layer behind the wreath. It helps the sentiment pop a bit more. I did round the corners of the wreath layers to soften them a little. The retired Trio Punch was what I used, but any corner rounder will do.
This card did not need a lot of bling since it is so busy as is. Of course I had to add a touch. So I went with a few Rhinestones on the wreath. Then I decided to add the Simply Elegant Trim in Silver to the left side and a bow at the top. This part shows up much clearer in person. It probably should be a double strand of the silver to stand out more.
I hope you have a great day!!
