Christmas Wreath

I was delighted to be asked to contribute to the Designer Cardmaking Joanna Sheen Special recently.  I was commissioned to create five cards using the fabulous free kit that comes with the magazine.

There is a 4-in-1 die set, 8 co-ordinating stamps, an embossing folder, 102 papers & toppers and some ribbon and gems.


I used the stamps and embossing folder to create this card using the letter press technique and some green ink.


I also used the stamps to stamp the Christmas Flower arrangement four times - I coloured with ProMarkers and fussy cut everything.


I used foam pads and glue gel for dimension.


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

Through The Craft Room Door - Always Anything Goes
Crafting When We Can Challenge 129 - Christmas Comes Early
One Stitch At A Time Challenge 272 - Anything Goes Monochromatic
The 12 Months of Christmas Link Up Challenge 22 - Anything Goes
Crafty Hazelnuts Christmas Challenge Extra - Always Anything Christmas Goes
