I just had to stop class prep and make a couple cards yesterday! I was going through withdrawal! lol A simple card that took me a few hours. lol I tried a couple other things but came back to this traditional layered up card! At least we have stitched rectangle dies now to dress up the layers! lol
I love this little holly duo stamp and die from the NEW Purrfect Holidays stamp set and Purrfect Holidays die set. I stamped and painted 7 of them with Peeled Paint Distress ink and the water brush , die cut them (using the On the Edge Cutting plates because they are smaller and faster to run through small things) and glued them to the wreath with Tombow Mono Multi glue.
Now for the fun part… A TIP... in case you haven’t already thought of this. Because I glued the holly to the Freida Wreath die cut already, I can turn the wreath over and put ½ squares of mounting foam tape on the back behind each of the holly, making the whole wreath popped up from the card base when I stick it on then! No gluing a few wreaths together to get dimension! YAY!
I used some skinny ribbon to make little bows tied on to the wreath here and there and then a piece along the bottom to finish it up!
