Believe Wreath

It's Merry Monday day and that means a new Christmas card challenge.  This week our hostess is Wendy and her challenge is to use greens, pinecones and the word "believe".


This was a real challenge for me as I don't tend to use the word "believe" in my stamping.  So I hunted through my sizeable collection and found one stamp that said "believe" - never inked, of course!

I turned it into this CAS card.



I stamped the wreath in Olive ink, then stamped and die-cut the pinecones in Sparrow and the berries in Schoolhouse Red, which were then popped up on the cardbase.

I gold-embossed the word Believe and fussy-cut it before adhering to the cardbase using some foam tape.  And that's it!




Thanks for visiting.  The design team have some wonderful samples to delight you so be sure to check them out.

Products used:

Stamps:  Autumn Blessings (SSS), Snowflake Soiree (SU)
Ink:  Versamark, Olive, Sparrow, Schoolhouse Red (SSS)
Cardstock:  White
Accessories:  Autumn Blessings dies, gold EP

Cheers
Karren
