Wreath as Focal Point

Today I made a quick card with the use of a couple stamps, a die and some pattern paper. It is amazing how wonderful a good pattern paper can make for a gorgeous background for a focal image. That was the case with this design I made.


The pattern paper I chose is from the Gina K. Designs Sparkling Christmas paper pack. And, the stamps are from a set I was fortunate enough to win and is from Carta Bella Designer Stamps called Jingle All The Way. I used my MISTI and some Tombo markers to color the image and the sentiment on white card stock and then I die cut it with a Gina K. Designs Small Double Stitched Circle die

.
The die cut wreath design was popped up onto the pattern paper which had been added to a white card base. I also added some of the pattern paper into the inside of the card.

Well, this is going to be entered into the Mod Squad Challenge-Wreath Focal Point. I hope you liked my simple card design and I thank you for visiting and for all of the wonderful comments you leave me. I so enjoy reading them.

God bless,
Verna

Too right on using the pretty patterned papers we have available. This is a wonderfully bright CAS card, and being someone who loves wreaths, this one is a treasure. Love that you've stamped on a stitched circle. The flower shapes in the wreath repeat that star theme in the festive paper, so it's a card very much to my taste indeed! TFS & Hugs

I love, love, love this, Verna. That background paper is perfect to showcase the wreath, and cutting it out with a circle die just makes the wreath pop. I'm pinning!!!
