My card uses Wreaths of Joy, continuing our seasonal wreath series. For Christmas the stamp set will have two different wreaths. The seasonal wreath series was originally concepted by Jami Sibley.It is illustrated by Nancy McKinney for the Whimsical Wishes Line. Both wreaths coordinate with the Seasonal Wreath and Bow Dies.

I used the holly wreath for this card. I colored the wreath with copic markers and used the Seasonal Wreath die to cut it out. I added a bow with the Basic Bow Embossed Die. My scalloped border is done with the Large Scallop Border. My papers are from Echo Park Season's Greetings.

I added small rhinestones to my wreath from Taylors Multi-color Twinkles.
For my sentiment I used a sentiment from the new Banner Holiday. Banner Holiday is a new sentiment set that coordinates with the popular It’s a Banner Day 1,2,&3 sets. It was designed and illustrated by Taylor VanBruggen for the *te* collection. I used the Banner Day 1 die.

On the inside I stamped the bird and a sentiment that is included in the stamp set.

Thanks for stopping by! I will back tomorrow with my Release Day. Be sure to stop by all the designers blogs today for lots more inspiration!

  5. Hi Melody,
    I really love the traditional look of your card - modern is great, but there's something about traditional that makes you think of all the Christmas past, back down the years!
    Hugs, Anne P.

  6. I like the rustic country feel of this card, it is probably your inclusion of that cool newspaper-like patterned paper, and how you decorated the inside with that sweet cardinal.
