One Layer Wondrous Wreath Christmas Card

by Joanne James12. August 2014 08:00

Today I'm sharing a card that I made for this week's challenge over at Less is More that is full of sneak peeks from the new seasonal Autumn-Winter catalogue that is launching at the end of the month. This week it's a one layer challenge with the focus on foliage; the minute I saw the theme, I knew exactly what I wanted to create. Here is my card:

I have used the new Wondrous Wreath set for my card today. This set comprises layered elements to create a beautiful Christmas wreath and also comes with a set of co-ordinating framelits, that make light work or cutting out. It's a photopolymer set too, which makes for incredibly easy alignment of the images - no stamp-a-ma-jig required! For today's card though I used the stamps alone - they are also great for a one layer card. I stamped the base wreath in Pear Pizzazz, then stamped the second section in Old Olive. I then stamped the berries and bow in Versamark and heat embossed with Cherry Cobbler embossing powder to leave a lovely sheen. Lastly, I added the sentiment from the same set in Cherry Cobbler ink.

The seasonal catalogue is choc-full of amazing products, but I think this may turn out to be my favourite of the Christmas sets due to its sheer versatility. If you like the look of this set, you only have another 16 days to wait until the new catalogue launches.

Following yesterday's fun day of Lego building, a trip to the cinema and birthday cake, today I'm partying of a different kind - I'm demonstrating at a Stampin' Up! party this afternoon. Wish me luck! Back tomorrow with this week's Design Team card for the Colour Me...! card challenge. until then, happy stampin'!

Yes indeed Anne - I saw your card and was tempted to try for a more autumn-themed colour scheme next time and see how that works out. So many possibilities!
