tis the season...

Hello... back with the second card I made during my Friday afternoon crafty session.  This one is for the new AEI{heart}U challenge, a sketch, and the current Festive Fridays.  I have never played along with Festive Fridays, but that beautiful inspiration photo really caught my attention so I just had to give them a try! (ETA... popping this into the August SSS Work It Wednesday, too.)


I recently purchased the new AE Winter Wreath dies from Ellen Hutson.  So happy that AE decided to come out with a set of dies to match the Winter Wreath stamp set... now the possibilities are endless!  Die cut all the pieces and then stamped the wreath in pink and the bow using Delicata Golden Glitz ink. The berries were stamped using Hero Arts silver.  Some silver and gold washi tape (My Mind's Eye) was adhered and then I splattered the card stock piece with the gold and pink inks mixed with water.  I adhered the wreath and then stamped the sentiment.  Finished off with the bow and little berries. 

Thanks for stopping by...

Supplies:  Cardstock:  PTI white; Stamps & dies:  Avery Elle; Washi Tape:  My Mind's Eye; Inks:  Stampin Up!, Tsukineko & Hero Arts
