Christmas Wreaths

Christmas is Near!
Merry Christmas, everyone! As you've heard many times before, and have probably said it a few, it's Christmas again! It seems like it was just hot and humid, buggy and summer! Time flies faster and faster! Is it the same for you?

I've got a couple of projects to share with you, and I hope you like them. These are swing cards, made using the wreath stamp from the Chocolate Baroque Christmas set, called Hearth and Home Unmounted Rubber Stamp Sheet - A4. (click on name to go to the page on the CB website)

I stamped the wreath in Versafine Onyx ink, and colored it in with water-based markers. The image was cut out with scissors, and popped-up with foam adhesives. Pearls or rhinestones were added to the centers of the flowers and the holly berries for dimension and bling. The papers were from my stash, and coordinated beautifully together.

Thanks for visiting, and I hope you'll leave a comment below!  Happy holidays, and may your new year be filled with blessings, love and laughter!


This card is my favorite! I never thought I'd like
the lighter green for Christmas, but I do!

Pink is not my first choice for Christmas, but it was in this
Christmas paper, and coordinated with everything well!
