PPA #273 – Peaceful Wreath

Hello and welcome.  I am back today with a Pals Paper Arts Sketch Challenge.


This was a fun sketch to work with and I had a few ideas for it as I have a few new holiday sets to break in.

I particularly love the vellum embossed Peace banner across the wreath.  It is hard to see in the photo so here is a close up. It is really very pretty and was hard to capture that beauty in a photo.

Once I decided on the Peaceful Wreath stamp set, which is in the Holiday Catalog, this card came together fairly quickly.  I absolutely LOVE wreaths…for every and all occasions so whenever a wreath stamp set comes out, it comes to my house.  Stampin’ Up! has several great wreath sets right now and they all coordinate with the Wonderful Wreath Framelits.  After I stamped and cut the wreath, I colored it with markers and highlighted the berries with some Cherry Cobbler Dazzling Details. With the Dazzling Details and the Red Foil paper this card sparkles and shines!

The cardstock and ink for the inside sentiment is Real Red and the Designer Series paper is from the Merry Moments paper stack.

I hope you enjoyed today’s card and I thank you for taking some time to check it out.

Have a wonderful Monday!
