Happy Sunday everyone!
Rise and Shine. Welcome to our holiday blog hop. You should have hopped here from Cari's blog! Hopefully you are finding your okay. I hope you guys have been enjoying all of the projects along the way. So by now I am hoping you have had a chance to see the holiday catalog from Stampin' Up that became available on August 28. There are so many goodies to choose from, a little something for everyone or if you're like me A LOT OF SOMETHING!!! When I first saw the holiday catalog I immediately fell in la-la-la LOVE with the Wondrous Wreath Photopolymer Stamp Set. It's a three step stamp set. I love the options they give you for the wreath. What makes this stamp set such a gem is the coordinating Wonderful Wreath Framelits Dies.
So onto my card. I chose Christmas because like everyone else I wanted to get a head start on my Christmas cards this year so I can mail them off in time! Ha! but I will probably wait till last minute like always because that's how I craft! lol But this wreath isn't only used for Christmas, you could easily make a wreath for Fall or even Halloween. Just change the colors you stamp it with. I chose Seasons of Style DSP because I love Polka Dots. This DSP is retired but it is still available on MDS. You could use any background to duplicate this card though.
I used my big shot to cut the bow, wreath, and the word Joy out with the framelits. All of these are from the Wonderful Wreath Framelits Dies. There is also a stamp that matches the bow if you wanted a color bow instead of a glitter bow. After I cut "Joy" I laid it over my versa mark and got the front wet with the stamp pad. I poured clear embossing powder over the word "Joy" and heat embossed it. This gave the word "Joy" a sheen look to it. It also made it a little more sturdy since the word is thin. Well I hope you enjoyed my card! Here is the card recipe:
