Noel

Hello!

I decided to create a Christmas card card using a few stamp sets that I have left on the wayside for some time.

SUPPLIES Stamps Lace Trims (Penny Black 30-181); Bells & Boughts (PTI) Dies Bells & Boughs: Bloomers Inks Red Royal, Pale Tomato, Field Greens, Green Hills (HA Midtone Ink); Bundled Sage Distress Ink (Ranger) Other Pearl Pen (Viva); Destinations Stickers (Simple Stories)

I kept it quite simple.

I first stamped a panel, using 2 shades of green ink, with one of the border stamps from Penny Black Lace Trims (30-181) to create a background.  I then rounded the corners of the panel.  I die cut various time the smaller flower from PTI’s Bells and Boughs. They were then stamped with 2 shades of red ink.  I then added the card panel to the card base and arranged the flowers to create a wreath.  Drawing a circle (by using a die cut stencil as a guide) with a pencil ensure that it is even on all sides.  Once that was done I added little small dots of pearls on the center of each flower and added a sentiment using alpha stickers.

I am once again including this card in this year’s last Festive Friday challenge.  This time I’m entering in in Element Challenge: Create a Holiday Themed Project that includes a Wreath.

I am also entering the card on the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge:  Anything Goes.

Now be sure to visit the Penny Black blog.  All this week, the blog will be showcasing the latest Valentine’s release, Sending Hugs.  Can’t wait to get my hands on them!

Hope you’re enjoying the week!
