Hi everyone, I'm back again with another Christmas card. Our challenge this week over at Merry Monday's blog is from Bonnie. She would like us to use a wreath. I had picked up the Memory Box "Grapevine Wreath" a while back and hadn't used it yet. What a perfect chance to use it.
I still had some of my gold and silver paper out from last week's challenge, so I used gold and silver metallic paper and silver and gold glitter paper and die cut out a wreath out of each paper and put all 4 wreaths together.
My wonderful friend, Darnell Knauss, from blogland, pulled my name about a month ago, now, and I won a Darcie "Brick Pattern" embossing folder. I thought this brick ef would be a wonderful background for my wreath. Thank you, Darnell!!
I colored the brick with Tim Holtz's blending tool and Distress inks in "Walnut Stain", "Gathered Twigs", "Brushed Corduroy" and "Fired Brick" I really like how the brick turned out. I mounted the wreath to the front of the brick, added a red ribbon and stars die cut out with PaperTrey Ink's "Dangled Stars". The brick is mounted to Stampin' Up's "Cherry Cobbler card stock, silver glitter paper and another piece of 'Cherry Cobbler" card stock.
I finished off the card by adding the word "Joy" out of Penny Black's "Love & Joy" that I die cut out with SU's "Cherry Cobbler" card stock and the silver glitter paper.
Thank you so much for stopping by. Don't forget to check out the other great wreaths over at Merry Monday's Christmas Challenge Blog.
