Color Challenge 15
Intrigued by the color selection, I played along with the Color Challenge over at www.createwithconnieandmary.com this week. I knew instantly that I was going to make a Christmas inspired card, how could I not?
I kept it simple and clean, but with a little twist. Can you tell how I made the wreath? I stamped and punched out numerous flowers from the Petite Petals stamp set in Garden Green ink. Who would have thought that flowers can make a wreath. They do! Versatility, it's all about it when it comes to paper crafting. *big smiles*
In order to achieve and maintain the wreath shape, I die cut a wreath using the Wonderful Wreath Framelits and then adhered each individual flower to it. I also altered the Cherry Cobbler bow that I die cut from that same framelit set as well. I took an Exacto Knife and cut out slits to have the bow look more like a tied ribbon on the wreath.
To add a little " somethin' somethin' " to the card, I added a Baked Brown Sugar star onto the "joy" to help tie in the stars I embossed on the larger piece of Baked Brown Sugar found behind the wreath. Adding little details like that help the cohesiveness of the card to come alive. Happy Stamping!
