Merry Christmas

Hello Peeps!!!

I have a fun card to share with you.

I used the sketch challenge at Tuesday Morning Sketches.

I flipped the sketch upside down for my card.

I had an idea to make a wreath using one stamp out of the Spirited Snowmen set.

The little holly and berry leaves stamp.
So I decided to give it a whirl using this sketch.

I stamped a ton of the little images onto some scraps of thick whisper white card stock.
I then colored them up using old olive and real red ink and my water brush.
I then had to fussy cut out all of them. I find that process kinda relaxing and fun so I didn't mind it too much.  

I layered to circle dies together and made a base for my wreath,
I then begun to glue them around the circle. Once they was all adhered, I added some over them using dimensionals.
I then stamped a bow from the Wishing You Well stamp set and added it to my wreath with another dimensional.
The red berries are covered with some Diamond Dust stickles.

The base of my card is real red cardstock and then a layer of whisper white that I embossed with the Basket Weave EF.

The sentiment comes from a non SU stamp set.
The die cut JOY is from the retired  Wonderful Wreath Framelits.
I die cut it with some red glitter paper and popped it up on the wreath.
I finished with a couple of red rhinestones.

Thank you for coming by!
