Hello, all!  I’m so excited to be sharing a card today using the BRAND NEW Christmas Wreath set–free with any $50 purchase right now–and the NEW Big Holidays set, too!  Come and take a peek at my card…

I love this new Christmas Wreath stamp set–it is SO versatile!  For this card, I decided to use the pine branch image to create a swag look to the top of my card.  I did this with the help of some generational stamping.  I then added some pine cones from the same set and pearls as accents.

The finishing touch for the swag was a fussy cut bow image from the Christmas Wreath stamp set.  I added a large pearl to the center to tie in the other pearl accents on this card.  I think it turned out fabulously!

I then turned to creating a sentiment panel.  I used a sentiment from the Big Wishes stamp set.  I added it to a punched border mat and added some ribbon and liquid pearls to finish this portion off.

The completed card is a traditionally colored holiday card with just a hint of shine and dimension!  I like the bold look of it–what do you think?

Here is the stamp set that I worked with –

To start, I used a circle die to lightly trace around in pencil. Any size die is fine. It just depends on how big you would like your wreath.

I use a dark green ink and place my stamp on the line of the circle

Then just keep moving the stamp around following the line

I go over the circle a couple of times to make the wreath nice and full

Then I use a lighter green to give it even more coverage. Stamp just above and below the dark green

Here is my finished wreath

I stamped the bow onto red card stock, embossed with white powder and fussy cut it out. It is adhered with some foam squares.

Look at that beautiful big sentiment!

    Lovely Christmas cards. I like the use of pearls on the first one and the way the wreath was stamped on the second.
