Christmas Wreaths

Today I have 2 Christmas cards that share a common element, a multi-stamped wreath.  It was stamped in different colors, and then I varied my backgrounds for each one.

The wreath is a Stampin Up one called Wondrous Wreath. It's retired, but really any stamped or die-cut wreath of your choice would work with all of these designs.

supplies: Audrey Blue, white, and a coral/pink cardstock, Hero Arts Woodgrain cardstock, Stampin Up Wondrous Wreath and bow, Tim Holtz Holiday Words die, PTI Mix & Mat die (birch tree frame), adhesive foam to pop up wreath

I like the little bit of texture that the woodgrain cardstock has!

supplies: white, gumdrop and Lipstick Red cardstock, plank background from packaging, Wondrous Wreath and bow, Simon's retired Merry & Bright die, Spellbinders Hemstitch Rectangle die

That Hemstitch die has turned out to be one of my go-to elements this year; it adds such a nice touch.

As always, thanks for stopping by - hope your Christmas preparations are going well!
