Hope you all had an enjoyable weekend and have had a good start to the new week. Tonight I would like to share another card I made for Sue and Harvey of Imagination Crafts back in October 2009. This is a very pretty Christmas wreath stamp, which incidentally, is in their bargain basement, in the Imagination Range, Christmas art stamps and has been reduced to £3.00, definitely a bargain lol! I have covered the wreath with flower soft and coloured fibres.
Fold a green card in half to make a five and a half inch square card. Matt a square of white card onto the green, leaving a small border of green showing. Next matt a slightly smaller piece of gold mirror card onto the white. Take a square of white card big enough to fit on top of the gold, leaving a border of gold showing. Punch all four corners with the X-cut holly punch, then cut this card in half across the centre. Put the straight edges at the top and bottom of the gold card, leaving approximately a quarter of an inch gap in the centre and glue in place.
Stamp the wreath twice onto some white card, using the forest green Stazon ink pad. Colour the centre of the first wreath, using the Vivid 'Indian Summer' ink pad and a piece of cut n' dry foam. Cut around the outer edge of the first stamped image. Then cut out the outer and the inner of the second wreath. Glue red and green flower soft around the wreath. Fix the second wreath to the first, using sticky foam pads. Punch out some holly leaves and berries from some gold mirror card and glue around the wreath.
Wind some fibre into a circle and glue to the centre of the wreath. Stamp the bow from the wreath stamp onto some gold mirror card, cut out and fix to the original image, using silicone glue.
Punch out some green holly leaves and glue around the outside edges of the base card. Punch out some gold holly leaves and berries and glue on top of the flower soft, in the odd place.
Stamp ' Merry Christmas' near the bottom of the card, using the forest green Stazon pad. Glue some gold and green berries in between the two words
Glue the green corner waste (left over after punching out the holly) and glue in each corner.
That's all from me my friends, see you all again very soon. Thank you for taking the time to visit my blog and if you have left me a comment, 'Thank you' again.
Love and rainbows,
Happy crafting, Hugs Jennifer xx.
