Season's Greetings


Today's card was created for the latest AAA Cards clean and simple challenge. I will be the first to admit that I struggle with clean and simple cards. I love layers and lots of elements on a card, but I wanted to challenge myself and do something outside of my comfort zone. I just picked up the Concord & 9th Merry Mantle stamp set during a 4th of July sale and thought the wreath in that set would be perfect for this challenge. I stamped it onto some white Copic-friendly cardstock, colored it using my alcohol markers, fussy cut the image, and then edged it with my Memento dual tip marker for nice clean lines. I then die cut a stitched rectangle using Paper Rose stackable dies. I stamped the sentiment from the same Concord & 9th stamp set onto the panel and then popped it up off of my card using 3M foam tape. I then added more foam tape behind my wreath and popped it up over the sentiment. To finish my card off I added some red Stickles around the wreath to mimic berries. Thank you for stopping by my blog today!

Such a beautiful card. You fussy cut those leaves?? That is some superpower there, that you've got! Love that you thought of a wreath for the twinchie. Beautiful! Thank you for joining us at AAA Cards, hugs ~ Ishani
