Wreath Card

Ever want to make a simple & quick card that can transition to almost any season or reason? The wreath is definitely a way to give you that base & depending on the colors & sentiment you choose. Here's one I completed in 15 minutes:

I used a cup to give me a very rustic set of pale circles in the background using Cashmere ink (Z2175). You don't have to have a stamp for that- you just want a shape of the circle to guide the placement of what you add next. Freehand it if you like & feel comfortable with that.

Next I stamped 3 different leaves (from C1589, Lifetime of Happiness) in 3 shades of green, Fern (Z2650), Topiary (Z2155) & New England Ivy (Z2135). I chose the owl from an older stamp set- but you can use anything at this point to give a focal point- or not at all. I embossed the sentiment to help it pop using black ink pigment ink from our Basics Mini Pigment Pad Set (Z2503) & Ranger clear embossing powder (Z2088).

To add a finishing touch- I stamped a few of the leaves on the inside of the card as well as on the envelope
It carries the theme inside and also still leaves plenty of room for you to write a message.
