Stampin’ Up! Feeling of Christmas Wreath

The Feeling of Christmas stamp set has a beautiful line drawing of a wreath with a bow – perfect for coloring.  It also includes an artsy circle stamp and some artsy berries – fun!  And the sweet sentiments are quite versatile.  It will retire on January 2, 2018, so be sure you have it before it’s no longer available for order.

Use Basic Black Archival ink to stamp the wreath image on a panel of Daffodil Delight cardstock.  Stamp the sentiment in the center of the wreath – using a Stamp-a-ma-jig to be sure you have it placed exactly where you want it.  Color the leaves with Lemon Lime Twist and the berries with Real Red Stampin’ Write markers.  So easy!  Use Multipurpose Liquid Glue to adhere the art panel to a layer of Real Red cardstock.  Use SNAIL to adhere a panel of Merry Little Christmas Designer Series Paper to the Basic Black card base.  And adhere the art panel to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals centered left to right and top to bottom.

Use Basic Black Archival ink to stamp the branch image and sentiment to a panel of Whisper White cardstock for the interior liner.  Color the leaves with Lemon Lime Twist and the berries with Real Red Stampin’ Write markers.  Then adhere to a panel of Real Red cardstock.  Use SNAIL to adhere the completed layer to the interior of the card.

As a final touch, add a bit of dimension and shine to the berries on the wreath with Crystal Effects, if you still have some in your stash.  Or use the current Fine-Tip Glue Pen to add shine.  The tip provides a lot of control for application.  It won’t add dimension, but will definitely add a special look.  Both products require extended drying time, so do this step last and set aside to dry.
