Whether you want it or not Holidays will be here before you know it. So not too panic, start now with your decorating projects and your Holiday cards. Over the next few weeks I will be introducing different cards. Right now I am on a theme kick. So my themes are wreaths, stars, and trees. Stampin' Up! came out with the Wonderous Wreath with framelit, a star stamp with framelit, Bright and Beautiful, with framelit, and Festival of Trees with punch. The Wonderous Wreath is marvelous because it is not just for Christmas. I have done a fall, Christmas, and birthday card using the Wonderous Wreath and was easy, but best of all quick. We all want cards that are quick and easy especially with the busy Holidays ahead.
The first card, "Season's Greetings", is a simple layering with Wild Wasabi ink and Real Red for the berries. The pink card is stamped with Pear Pizzaz. I used Bohoo Blossom punch for the flowers and a small pearl in the center. I added a Pink Organaz ribbon. This card will be perfect as a Birthday, Mother's Day, or a Get Well card. The third card is done in Lost Lagoon ink and coordinating ribbon. In the center is the word Joy which comes from the Wondrous Wreath framelit. The background is woodgrain stamped in Smoky Slate ink. The matte (base) is a darker gray paper from Stampin' Up!. The Fall card starts with Hello Honey as the base with Basic gray paper on top embossed in Honeycomb embossing folder. The basic wreath is stamped in Hello Honey and leaves are in Cajun Craze ink. The berries are stamped in Old Olive ink. I hand cut the banner and used For All Things stamp set for the greeting on the front. With the exception of the first card, all wreaths were cut out from the Wondrous Wreath framelit.
