I played with the Peaceful Wreath Stamp Set and Wonderful Wreath Framelits today. My idea was to change it up to not so traditional Christmas colors and I love how the card came out! This card looks lots more complicated than it actually was to make, lotsa wow factor! Nothing about it is perfectly placed, it is a lovely, random mess of pretty 🙂
The base of the card front is watercolor paper cut slightly smaller than usual: 3 3/4 x 4 3/4. The large bough image from the set is white embossed randomly on the watercolor paper and then watercolored in Mint Macaron and Mossy Meadow ink. No effort was made to “stay in the lines”, just random watercoloring on and around the images. The wreath image was white embossed on vellum and then cut out with the wreath thinlit die. A star banner (from the Mini Treat Bag Thinlit die set) was cut out of Mint Macaron.
The sentiment banner is stamped on Whisper White card stock, the “Peace” is offset from “to the world” on the banner so the banner fits under the right side of the wreath. Sparkly embellishments are Mint Macaron and Silver Foil stars punched with the Confetti Stars Border Punch and rhinestones randomly scattered around the rest of the elements.
I thought the card needed a pop of another color and the Blossom Accent in Watermelon Wonder worked perfectly for that. There is a little halo of Silver Thread added under the blossom for a tiny extra detail. The finished card front is adhered to a Mint Macaron base.
I’m only in Florida for a few more days, this has been once again a wonderful time of creativity unleashed in so many ways! My cup is (almost) full.
I hope you love this card as much as I do and it inspires you to make something lovely today!
