Winter Wishes Wreath

Here's another card I made using the "Winter Wishes" stamp set.  I love seeing how versatile a stamp set can be.
This time I used the branch stamp to make a wreath hanging on a fence.  The fence was made using the background stamp: "Hardwood"

  • The base card is Old Olive, layered with Whisper White and then Merry Moments DSP
  • Use the background stamp "Hardwood" & Crumb Cake ink to make a woodgrain background.  Then with the SU cutter, cut this into pieces of wood at the seam lines.  Cut the tops with a 1" square punch and sponge all edges with Soft Suede ink.
  • Cut the pieces of boards into the desired length and glue them to the DSP to create the fence.  Cut one of the boards to adhere to the bottom.
  • To make the wreath, take a piece of Whisper White cardstock, and using a circle framelet as your template lightly draw a circle on the cardstock.
  • Stamp the image of the Evergreen bough, using Old Olive ink, along the edge of the circle to form a wreath.
  • Stamp the image of the Pine Cone (with Soft Suede ink) randonly on the wreath.  Fill in areas of the pine cones with Soft Suede ink and a blender pen.
  • Using a blender pen and Real Red ink, fill in the tiny berries on the wreath.
  • Apply glue and dazzling diamonds to the cones.
  • Stamp the word "Peace" - from "Happy Scenes" in the middle of the wreath.
  • Cut the wreath out.
  • At the top, of the wreath, punch a small hole and insert some gold cording trim through it.  Fasten behind the Whisper White layer. Adhere the wreath to the top of the fence using dimensionals.

  • Using the 1/4" Real Red Ribbon make a bow and adhere to the top of the wreath with  a glue dot.  Add a Winter Wonderland embellishment on the top of the bow.
  • At the bottom of the fence, tear a piece of dazzling diamond glimmer paper, and apply a little bit of Soft Sky colour to the edges.  Glue with tombo to the card bottom.
I thought I would show you what I did with the inside of the card.
