Christmas Wreath

As well as being Freshly Made Sketch Challenge day, I also have the privilege of being the hostess.  I hope you'll like my sketch:


I kept my card simple with lots of white space.


I stamped the various components of the wreath using before cutting out with the matching dies.  I painted Wink of Stella over the pinecones and berries before putting it all together.  The scalloped strip was cut with some Olive cardstock and all the white panels were run through the Big Shot with PTIs Canvas plate to give a subtle texture.  The rectangular panel is popped up on foam tape.


Thanks for visiting.  I hope you'll have some time to make a card using my sketch.  And be sure to check out what my teamies have done with the sketch - amazing!

Products used:

Stamps:  Autumn Blessings, Holly Berries (SSS)
Ink:  Olive, Schoolhouse Red, Sparrow (SSS), Versafine Onyx Black
Cardstock:  White, Olive
Accessories:  Fall Wreath die (SSS), Rectangle Scalloped Nestabilities, Canvas plate (PTI), American Crafts Twine.
