Christmas Wreath and Big Holidays - IBS

Hi everyone! Today I am using two new releases from Inspired by Stamping - Christmas Wreath and Big Holidays.



Here is the stamp set that I worked with -



To start, I used a circle die to lightly trace around in pencil. Any size die is fine. It just depends on how big you would like your wreath.




I use a dark green ink and place my stamp on the line of the circle




Then just keep moving the stamp around following the line



I go over the circle a couple of times to make the wreath nice and full




Then I use a lighter green to give it even more coverage. Stamp just above and below the dark green





Here is my finished wreath





I stamped the bow onto red card stock, embossed with white powder and fussy cut it out. It is adhered with some foam squares.

Look at that beautiful big sentiment!


I would like to enter this card into the following challenges -

Thanks so much for looking xx

  7. Beautiful card Kylie ... and a great way to make your own wreath with a stamp. The two colours of green really give it lots of depth even though it's just one layer. Loll xx
