Wreath Framed


Hello, there, and happy Monday, friends!  Look how close we are to Christmas!  Do you believe it?  I need to start mailing Christmas cards soon.  Heck, I need to make quite a few more, too.  Not to panic, though.  There’s always the option to buy a box of cards, if necessary, but I’d rather not.

Today’s card was not too time consuming.  I used a pretty wreath and sentiment from Power Poppy’s Wreaths Plain and Fancy set.  I stamped the wreath in a soft green ink so I could do no-line coloring.  The outline completely disappeared and it looks as though I painted the wreath, myself.  Shhhh, don’t tell!

The dies I’ve used today are:
Yes, I’ve enjoyed my IO Rectangle 6-in-1 Frames so much that I picked up a set of square frames.  Love the shape of these little cuties.  They’ve got “stitching”, too.  Everyone’s loving that these days.  Here the three largest frames are held together with foam mounting tape on the back.  I considered coloring the frame, but opted instead to leave it white for a nice, clean look.

The deer and the tree are perfectly sized for card accents, especially when you have a stamped image for a focal point.  I must say of all the deer dies I perused at Dies R Us, this is the one that spoke to me.  As for the tree, I cut it in white, colored part with a YG95 Copic, and applied Frosted Lace Stickles glitter to the snowy parts.

Jump in anytime between now and the 28th with our Thankful Challenge and maybe you’ll be a winner.  Use a die, a thankful theme, and link it up.  Couldn’t be easier!  That about wraps it up, I think.  Thanks so much for coming to visit today!
