Noel Wreath




Well, this card was fun but a bit labor intensive!  Took me a few days but I do like it.  It's a good thing because I made 12!  LOL

This all started when I was making cards for a friend and I used the mirror paper (CS-0137) for a circle frame.  Well, I ended up with 10 circles of Mirror paper (It is a little pricey) so I needed to make something with it.

I started by stamping the image (Noel Wreath AT-0267) and coloring with our Color Burst pencils (JM-0077) while watching TV.  (Maybe that's why it took so long)  I blended the color on Santa, but not the animals.  I thought it looked more like the texture of fur, feathers etc.  Then I fussy cut them all out!

On to the next step:   I die cut the wreath (DI-0250 Medallion Wreath Die Set) and colored the bow with our Cranberry Bliss Silk (IP-0094)  That stuff that looks like nail polish.



Do you see the silver mirror paper?  or and yea, I had to die cut 12 black circles a little bigger than the mirror paper.  I also used the mirror paper that I cut the circles from and used every space I could to die cut the snow flakes.

Next:




I stamped the background with our stamp Flannel Life (SS-0325) with Black Licorice ink (IP-0041).  Yep, its a stamp not designer paper!

Of course I had to pop everything up.  I used fun foam, small and medium foam square, glue dots, and liquid glue!  whew.....a lot of adhesives! 

Here are some views of the finished products:






I used a plain black circle for this one.




This is designer paper instead of the black circle.  Check out the mirror paper.  You can see my arm in the background taking the picture!  Too funny!







This one too!
