CR84FN40 - Christmas Wreath and Star

Love the colors this week at  CR84FN40.  The red, kraft, and brown colors make a rich color combination.

I pulled out my Memory Box stamps to create an early Christmas card.

Part of the background is created by stamping the Peace collage on white cardstock using brown ink.  The other background pieces are created using Ranger Archival Crimson ink with a touch of brown ink and the vintage holiday words on white cardstock.  The background pieces were sponged with vintage photo.

The wreath was stamped using black ink and colored with glimmer mist. Cut out the wreath and place over star which has been sponged and the sentiment stamped in the middle.

Products: Memory Box - Vintage Holiday Words, Peace Collage, Poinsettia Wreath, Wish you a Merry Christmas.

  18. This is wonderful Sue. I love how the wreath softens the star shape and how you've offset it on the card. I'm sure I would have put it in the centre and it looks so much more effective and interesting your way.
