i friends! I created this card with a wreath making die set that I've owned for quite a while, but I enjoy using it to make wreaths for holiday and non-holiday cards. With the creation of this card, I've finally completed all of my Christmas cards. The majority have already been mailed and this one and one other will be hand delivered. Happy Holidays to all of you!
To create the front card panel for this A2 sized card, I used Gina K. Design's Masking Magic and cut four strips and adhered them to the right-hand side of the card front to mask off areas of the white cardstock that I didn't want to get watercolor paint on. Then, using my Kuretake watercolor pans, I painted a red, green and silver stripe down the unmasked areas on the card front.
Next, I utilized the Rubbernecker Stamps "Wreath Set" dies to cut all the elements for my wreath from a light and dark color green cardstock. I also cut some of the twig wreath elements from some chocolate brown cardstock. After gluing all the little leaves and twigs together to form the wreath I set those aside to dry while I created the sentiment.
For the Merry Christmas sentiment, I used the Spellbinders' "Christmas Mix & Match Sentiments" die set. I cut two copies of each die from white cardstock and one of each from black cardstock. I glued the two white layers together and then glued the black ones on top of the white ones to add dimension to the Merry Christmas.
Assembly time: I used liquid glue to adhere the wreath and the sentiment to the card front. After that was completed, I used Ranger "Cranberry" Stickles to the tips of each of the twigs to create the look of holly berries. Once those were dry, I adhered the card front to the A2, top folding card base and this card was complete.
I hope you enjoyed my take on a Christmas wreath card and it inspires you to create one yourself. So much fun!
Thank you so much for stopping by to see me - I appreciate you doing so!
Until next time…
