For our first card-making prompt at Jingle Belles, we're breaking-out the gifts Santa brought us.
I have had this Simon Says Stamp Ring Wreath Die on my wish list for quite some time ... and I was thrilled with out my first card using it turned out.
I started by die cutting my wreath from black cardstock for the frame.
Next, I die cut the wreath using two different shades of teal glitter paper and a sheet of silver glitter paper (actually I used scraps of glitter paper and cut out multiple partial wreaths ... since a lot of the circles are the same size, this works well). It was so relaxing to fill in all of the circles.
I stamped Joy from Simon Says Stamp Big Words - Encouraging Words (using my MISTI made it fool proof even after I had adhered the wreath to my cardstock). I finished with a black cardstock bow punched with the Stampin' Up Bow Builder. I just love the mid-century modern feel of the glittery bauble wreath.
I'm also joining the Anything Goes Challenge at Simon Says Stamp.
