Good morning and welcome to the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop! I used the Stampin’ Up! Sparkle Of The Season bundle to make a festive wreath Christmas card. You can find the supplies I used at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.
We have a color challenge this week and here’s the pretty color palette we are using – with Old Olive and Real Red it has to be a Christmas card, right?
I adhered a panel of Gingerbread & Peppermint 6″ x 6″ designer series paper to an Old Olive mat and adhered it to the front of a Real Red card base. I cut the third largest scalloped rectangle from the Scalloped Contours dies and adhered it to the center with liquid glue.
I used the leafy wreath die from the Seasonal Swirls dies to cut a Cinnamon Cider Wreath. I carefully cut a card from the Gingerbread & Peppermint Memories & More card pack with the pine and holly wreath die (luckily it just barely fit!) and I cut another pine and holly wreath from Old Olive. I adhered the wreaths together with dots of liquid glue and adhered them to the card front with liquid glue. I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Sparkle Of The Season photopolymer stamp set in Real Red on Basic White and cut it out with the large label die from the Pretty Pillow Box dies. I was pleased at how easy it was to ink up each word and stamp them on top of each other – thank you for photopolymer!! I adhered the label to the inside of the wreath with dimensionals.
I made a bow with sheer Real Red Ribbon and adhered it to the bottom of the wreath with a glue dot. I cut out six sets holly leaves from Mossy Meadow and adhered them around the wreath with glue dots and finished each leaf cluster with three red rhinestone jewels.
For the inside of the card, I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Sparkle Of The Season stamp set in Real Red on a Basic White panel. I stamped the pine boughs in stamped off Old Olive and the holly leaves in Mossy Meadow. I adhered a strip of Gingerbread & Peppermint 6″ x 6″ DSP to the bottom of the panel and adhered the panel to the inside of the card.
I love wreath Christmas cards and the Stampin’ Up! Sparkle Of The Season wreaths have intricate details that are so pretty, especially when they are layered. One of the things I like to do is decorate them, just like you would do for the wreath on your front door.
