Woodland Wreaths

I'm finishing up my Christmas cards.   It's a joy each year to open my bin of Christmas goodies and rediscover some beautiful stamps that I love.  Here are 2 cards using a beautiful Wplus9 set called Woodland Wreaths - I used the same colors on both for a kind of seaside feel, and changed up the backgrounds.  And I think this may be the first time I've put white berries on them......

Woodland Wreath

supplies: Simon's Surf Blue and Green Apple cardstock, white cardstock, Wplus9 Woodland Wreath stamps and matching dies, Simon's Jelly Bean, Hero Arts Latte chalk ink, and broken china distress oxide inks, Memory Box Peace Collage woodblock stamp, VersaMark and white embossing powder, Simon's Stitched Rectangle die

I knew Memory Box for their woodblock stamps when I first started this hobby - and their Peace Collage remains a favorite of mine.

And my 2nd version:

Woodland Wreath2

supplies: same cardstocks and inks, Wplus9 Woodland Wreaths stamps and matching dies, Hero Arts Holiday Sayings sentiment, Sizzix Ornate Frames embossing folder

I've listed my supplies, but I'm not linking them - most of them are out of stock or discontinued.

How are you coming with your Christmas cards?  I think I'm going to call mine finished!

  4. Seeing all your beautiful Christmas cards makes me want to make Christmas cards all year long.....or at least see them from you. Love these wreaths against the blue backgrounds. They are both so pretty, Lin.
