Wondrous wreath - take 2

Hi everyone,

Thanks for stopping by today and for all your wonderful comments on yesterday's post. I truly do appreciate all of you!

As the post title suggests, today I'm sharing another card created using the Wondrous Wreath stamp and die bundle from Stampin' Up! I've loved Lost Lagoon, one of this year's new In Colors, since I first saw it. I like to change things up a bit and I knew almost immediately that it will be part of my personal color scheme this Christmas, so you'll likely be seeing a lot of it as the season approaches, but that's not a bad thing!

For this card I've teamed it with one of last year's In Colors, Coastal Cabana and another favorite from this year, Blackberry Bliss...

Once again I've used Crumb Cake card for the base, this time layering another piece of the same card onto it which I embossed with the Wood grain folder and sponged with Crumb Cake ink. The Noel die was cut from more Whisper White card. The wreath and bow were popped up on Stampin' Dimensionals and sentiment added with Tombow glue.

All these items and much more loveliness is available 24/7 in My Online Shop

This card was the first I created using this set, so it qualifies for the NBUS (never before used schtuff) challenge at djkardkreations

Have you decided on your color scheme for the upcoming season yet? Do you prefer traditional or non-traditional colors? Let me know in the comments.

After a very busy week, I'm off out to the coast tomorrow for some much needed fresh air. Whatever you're doing this weekend, have a great one and I look forward to seeing everyone on Monday when I'll be sharing the third card created yesterday.



  1. Your color choices are ones that I love, too, Em, and I think they will be a fab scheme for your cards this year. They sure look lovely on that wreath hanging against your awesome fence design! Great sponging to make it look so real! As for me, I love both traditional and nontraditional colors, so I'll prolly do some of both. Thank you so much for playing in my second NBUS Challenge! Hugs, Darnell

  2. Beautiful Christmas card. Love the cards you are making with this wreath. Very festive too.

  4. Love that colour combination - great card!

  5. A delightful CAS design Em! I like that you embossed and inked the woodgrain - looks great as a background for your wreath. That white die cut Noel is perfect against the door and balances your design nicely! Thank you for sharing your project & creativity at our house!
