How to use the Christmas Wreath Stamp set

Elaine here with a wintery card using the Christmas Wreath Stamps  - it's a set of 7 stamps including solid Holly & Ivy stamps, some stems so you can build your own wreath and a Happy Christmas sentiment stamp.

For this card I've stamped and clear embossed the wreath shape and then sprayed with French Mint Ink in a Bottle.  Once this was dry I ironed off the embossing powder to leave the white twigs and then stamped the Holly and Ivy with Sea Green and Forest Green Pigment Inks.  I love this combination of colours!!   I've just added the sentiment from the Deck the Halls set to finish and added some Stickles and gems to make it look frosty!

Here's a close up so you can see the white branches:

It's a very versatile set of stamps - you can make whatever size wreath you like or just create one corner or a border!   I hope I've inspired you to have a go and don't forget to enter the Winter Challenge in the INKSPIRED group on facebook.
