Hello … bonjour! We’re mid way through our latest lovely challenge at Time Out, where this fortnight we’re inspired by a deliciously decorated Christmas front door (a little further down). I went with a wreath again … this time, a more simple, traditional one rather than the contemporary bubbly one of last week …
The wreath is from Winnie & Walter, die cut in solid and outline form … the solid one was watercolour washed and the outline one was coloured with various Promarker greens … and they were fixed together. I adhered the wreath onto the card base, curving the leaves up along the inner and outer edges to provide some dimension, and decorated it with tiny red gems and a seam binding bow (yep, ribbon … on one of my cards!). The two parts of the sentiment (both from SSS) were heat embossed in platinum, with the ‘happy’ stamped directly onto the base and the ‘Christmas’ die cut three times, stacked and added across the wreath. Voilà!
Does this luscious bauble wreath get your creative tastebuds tingling? We’d love it if it did! If you’re in need of some inspiration, there’s a heap of it over at the Time Out blog … from our super talented Guest Designer, Sonja K from The Art of Stamping, and from our own fantastic Design Team. Do hope you’ll have chance to make it to the gallery!
I’m playing along with …
SSS Monday – Just a Pinch … of rare ribbon!
SSS Wednesday – Die Crazy
Thanks so much for coming by … especially amidst all the Christmas busy-ness … your visits and comments are always a joy! Anita 🙂
