Lovely Christmas Wreath


Hi, Scrapbook Stamp Society Friends! 
Donna here with an elegant card share.



I couldn't resist this little taste of elegance.






Having fallen deeply in love with this wonderfully detailed Christmas Wreath image by Kim Gwin, I was delighted when sweet DTC Sher sent it to me.


It was remarkably easy to color because the image reveals the places to lighten and darken.

If you enjoy "Pretty", but prefer something easy to color, then this beautiful wreath would make a lovely addition to your digi Christmas items.  It's perfect for vintage or contemporary paper crafting, and it can be cut apart to use pieces of it, too.


I decided to try a Twisted Easel style card, and though Christian Griffiths' video tutorial was very simple, and contained wonderful tips about placement of images both top and bottom, I had trouble with the placement of the sentiment on the bottom portion of the card, so if you try this fold, you might want to use longer, thinner sentiments, or something extremely small, rather than a squarish size sentiment.

When closed, this is what the top looks like:

Except for the printed paper, all of the green is vellum.


The bottom looks like this when closed:

A computer-generated sentiment with a variety of fonts was fun to create.

Here is a close up of the bottom when opened:



Hope you enjoy this beautiful wreath as much as I have!


Sweet hugs for you always,
