Holiday Wreath

It is the 25th of the month, which means Papertrey Ink Blog Hop! This month’s theme is wreaths.

This card sorta happened by accident. I was supposed to be working on a design team challenge, but for some reason my brain kept working on a wreath card!

I admit that I usually have problems with this stamp set, but this card pretty much popped into my head. I was skimming my Pinterst board looking for inspiration for another project and honestly don’t know if I saw something that got this card going or if not thinking about it worked.

The wreath is stamped multiple times using both Kraft and Dark Chocolate inks.

I stamped the wreath too far north, and the bottom was feeling empty. I had no idea what to do, but the bottom of the “y” in merry just kept screaming holly berry. Of course after I stamped the tiny holly leaves I wished I hadn’t, but done is done.

Thanks for taking a peek!

  1. I have to agree with Nancy above and say that the holly berries are the perfect touch! I love how festive and jubilant your card turned out, Karen.

  2. Love your card! I like the tiny holly leaves! It is like an exclamation point for the path my eyes followed through your lovely design! 🙂
