Merry Christmas everyone! The card I share Today is not overly Christmas looking but I think it is suitable for the occasion.
I used Build A Wreath Digital Stamp Set to make the card. It’s fantastic set. You can build your own uniqeu wreaths. I chose the sprig wreath and added leaves and berries. It was time consuming process. But only because I had to make it twice… Right after I finished placing all the leaves and berries to the wreath, and I was happy with the result, I wanted to save my work but computer froze. So, I took a camera and made a photo of my computer screen. After computer was restarted, I imported the photo to computer and used it as a reference guide. At least I didn’t had to re-think placement of the leaves again. But despite everything, it was fun to play with this stamp set.
Image was colored with Promarkers. To the berries I added Morning Dew Nuvo Crystal Drops. It dries clear and leaves nice dimensional shine. wreath and the sentiment are cut out with Silhouette machine.
On the background I used wooden pattern paper. To add some interest I made score lines to it and added Vintage Photo and Ground Espresso Distress Inks directly to paper. I also sprinkled Super Thick Silver Embossing Powder on top and heated with a heat tool from underneath until powder melted. I also added drops of Wisteria Purple Nuvo Crystal Drops to the pattern paper.
Edged of the pattern paper was distressed with scissors. I took a white lace and colored it with Shaded Lilac Distress Ink. Lace was placed to peek out underneath the pattern paper.
If you like Build A Wreath Digital stamp set but prefer rubber stamps, I recommend to keep your eyes open on New Year 😉
