Merry Monday.....Christmas Wishes


Happy Tuesday peeps!!!

Today I am sharing a card I made using this fabulous little stamp set i just got. It is made by JustRite stamps and I have had my eye on it for a long time! I just love it and finally went ahead and took the plunge and got it. It arrived in my mailbox yesterday and so I sit right down to play with it.

I saw the challenge this week at the Merry Monday Christmas Challenge, was to feature bells on your card. Perfect for my new stamp, the wreath has bells!!


I stamped the wreath image onto some white card stock and colored with my copic markers.
I then was a bit crazy and decided to cut this baby out. That was a bit challenging, especially the inside, but I got it done. I set it aside and made the base.


The base is white card stock then a layer of Cherry Cobbler. I then embossed another piece of white using the decorative dot embossing folder. I then added the wreath to my base using some dimensionals. the sentiment is from the same wreath set and is stamped using Cherry cobbler ink.  I die cut it out using a MFT die. I then added a strip of cherry cobbler card stock across the bottom and mounted the sentiment with dimensionals. 

I then used some crystal effects on the jingle bells and used my wink of stella brush to add some shimmer to the bow.

So pretty IRL. 
I finished it up with a couple of red rhinestones.

Thanks for stopping by today!
