Last year I started making Christmas cards in July. This year, I held off until the middle of August when it was good and hot, LOL. Maybe this frosty scene will cool us off!
I began by cutting the bottom circle of the wreath from a blue and purple section of Rainbow Glimmer Paper. This is one of the Wreath Builder Dies, and you can see the entire set in my Product List below. The gorgeous, Rainbow Glimmer Paper is there also.
Next, I cut the top circle of the wreath from Seaside Spay Cardstock. I had previously decided that the card base (8 1/2″ X 5 1/2″, folded at 4 1/4″) would be Seaside Spray.
I had also chosen the background for the wreath, a 5 1/4″ X 4″ piece of Feels Like Frost Designer Paper. It blends with Seaside Spray perfectly, don’t you think?
Before gluing the Feels Like Frost layer to the card base, I glued the wreath, so I could snip the overhang from the border. I held the circles with my hand, on the overhang portion (one circle at a time), to avoid a gluey mess. I also left a couple leaves unglued, so I could attach the sentiment beneath them.
The sentiment is from the Perfectly Plaid Stamp Set, one that I used many times last year, and it’s still a favorite. I stamped it in Gorgeous Grape Ink on Thick Whisper White Cardstock, and used one of the new, Snow Time Dies, for cutting.
The colors and sketch were inspired by Fusion.
