CHRISTMAS WREATH CARD:
I've had the Printed Petals stamp set for awhile and have never used it-not a big floral fan. I'm really not sure why I bought it-I think it may have been 40% off or something-I can't pass up a deal! Anyway, I thought the scalloped image looked kind of like a wreath, so that's what I used in Garden Green. I stamped another wreath in Garden Green cardstock and layered it behind it with dimensionals. I punched some ornaments out of the Red Glimmer Paper and added a bow with the gorgeous new Cherry Cobbler Quilted Ribbon.
I made the little mail slot in Basic Grey by running it through the Big Shot using the new Peekaboo Die. I cut it in half and stamped Versamark over it and sponged a little Champagne Shimmer Paint over it to make it look like metal. I really wanted to heat emboss it, but thought my card ladies would hurt me! So I opted for this route.
