Merry Christmas 2015

450pxl Home for X-Mas DSP-More Merry Messages Derek

Merry Christmas!  I hope you are having a wonderful day with family and friends.  We are spending a quite day at home and I’ll be making cookie plate deliveries tomorrow and Sunday.

I wanted to share the clean & simple Christmas card I made for Derek this year.  The wreath shape is made from the leftover foam donut from a spool of ribbon.

CARD BASE:  I started with Very Vanilla and layered it with Mossy Meadow and the Real Red and Very Vanilla striped paper from the Home for Christmas Designer Series Paper.

FOCAL POINT:  I took the foam donut shape from an empty spool of ribbon and cut a third away.  Then I wrapped the wreath with Pear Pizzazz 1/2″ Seam Binding (vintage).  I left the ribbon unglued when wrapping around and only glued the ends to the back.  I punched multiple branch shapes from Mossy Meadow, Always Artichoke and Pear Pizzazz and tucked a different color branch into each layer of ribbon.  Then I topped the wreath with a Cherry Cobbler 1/2″ Seam Binding (vintage) bow with a couple glue dots.  Next, I had leftover colored rhinestones and placed them around the wreath.  Hello…..I had to add sparkle.  Lol!  Finally, it was placed on the card with several glue dots.

SENTIMENT:  I stamped “Merry Christmas” from the More Merry Messages stamp set (vintage) onto Very Vanilla in Mossy Meadow ink.  I felt the need to fussy cut and then popped with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I hope you have a wonderful and Merry Christmas.  Thank you for stopping by today and have a great weekend.
