A Very Seasonal Christmas Wreath Card

Hi Sylvia here with a short post with a Christmas card and a reminder that this month's challenge is "Winter", an ideal opportunity to get those Christmas cards started and enter the challenge too.

Today I have been playing with the Oak House Studio  Christmas wreath stamp set. My wreath was stamped onto a cut out circle using the individual stamps in this set, then cut out with a craft knife before mounting onto my card.  The branches were lightly stamped round the edge and the leaves added to form the wreath, the berries were created  using the poinsettia center from the bumper winter leaves stamp set. The sentiment was stamped in the center of the wreath and a red ribbon added to finish the card.  I used Oak House Studio pigment inks which were added to the stamps then sprayed with a fine mist of water.

This is a fabulous set for stamping your Christmas/winter projects and there are many more Christmas stamps in the shop.  Looking forward to seeing your winter cards and projects entered into this month's challenge,  check out the facebook page for more details of the challenge and the prizes on offer.

Loving the watercolour effect you've achieved on this. The Christmas Wreath stamps are so useful aren't they?
