If you know me, it's no surprise to see another Christmas card on my blog. They are my favorite to make & those are the products that tempt me the most. In fact, I gave in when there was an additional 25% off the close-out price at MFT. Those stamps & dies just arrived, but while I was waiting I took out the MFT Spring Wreath die to use for Color Challenge 74. I find any wreath can be used for any season. They're one of my favorite images.
I placed the 2 die cuts in the negative cut from scrap paper while I sponged with green inks. Then I layered them & added the bow from the same set done in the purple & turquoise--as close as I could get to the colors. I covered it with Wink of Stella & added a clear gem. My gem collection is huge, so decided to use a couple different sizes to embellish the wreath as well. The background mat is a light gray cardstock cut with MFT In & Out Stitched Rounded Squares & I added green splatters before attaching the wreath. The sentiment from W&W In Bloom: Frenchy's Festive Florals was cut from the same gray cardstock & is clear embossed a couple times. Hard to see, but the card front has texture from PTI linen impression plate & the panel is mounted with thin fun foam. I'm also entering CAS-ual Fridays, CCC, The Playground, SSS Wednesday & Die Cut Divas. My laptop needs a new part, so may get a little behind in commenting. Thanks so much for taking time to stop by.
