Christmas Wreath is cold and snowing outside. Very beautiful! My family, as well as many others in my area, are still without power from last weeks ice storm. We are praying that our pipes hold out and DO NOT freeze. This is day SIX without power. All is well, but I didn't count on losing a full week just before Christmas. Much to do! Much to do! And, it is hard to stamp and scrapbook in the dark. :-(

At any rate, here is another Stamp-A-Stack creation. I love using non-traditional stamp sets for Christmas card creations. This card uses the Heartfelt Thanks stamp set! LOVE IT! Totally not my idea. But, I saw the idea on by searching Christmas Wreath. Check it out. You will be blown away at all the variations and ideas.

Comments: Fold your Riding Hood Red CS. With Mellow Moss Ink on Whisper White CS, stamp the “solid flower stamp” to create the wreath. Then, stamp the “lined flower” image using Always Artichoke ink and the “dot” using Riding Hood Red Ink. Create your bow and adhere with a Mini Glue Dot. Adhere the stamped layer to the Always Artichoke CS using SNAIL adhesive. Then, adhere that to gift card front. Stamp ”Merry Christmas” using Whisper White Ink on Chocolate Chip CS. Punch out with the Wide Oval Punch. Using the Paper Piercing Tool and Mat, pierce holes in your oval. Adhere with Dimensionals. Gently add Crystal Effects to the “berries” on the wreath. Allow to dry.
