Yuletide Wreath


I'm not very good with those little stamps you are suppose to collage with even watching a live demo of it, mine always look rubbish but I may have cracked it with this card.

I've used the Simon says Stamp Yuletide Holiday which have these tiny stamps, all the time when I stamped them I kept telling myself less is more. I did stamp the pine needles at least twice more to get 2nd and 3rd impressions before inking up again. This help with the spaces between leaf and flower to stop it look gappy!

I used the Simon says Stamps Stitched Circles although I found it tricky to raise the frame and match the stamping basically I made it hard for myself.

Probably didn't need the sequins but it looked quite plain in real life but now I think they weren't needed.

Now I need a simple way to raise and match the frame and this would make quite a few quick cards for my tiny Christmas pile.

The wreath is so pretty and you have matched it up beautifully Debby, and the central image looks perfect. This design is great for batch making too. x

This style of placement is perfect. Nice Christmas card. You did a super job.

Pretty card! To solve your "raising the circle frame" problem, could you just cut a frame out of white fun foam and put it underneath the stamped one?
