Designer's Tip: When coloring the first stamped wreath, don’t worry about the details because the wreath cut out will cover it up. When coloring 2 wreaths, select the better of the 2 to go on top.
- Place the card fold on the side. Glue 4 3/4” x 6 1/4” mauve poinsettia paper to the card front. Ink the edges of 7””x4 1/4” holly paper and apply glue to the left side. Roll paper into a tube until it is now 5” wide. Glue across the card, 5/8” from the bottom. Mat the long edges of 5”x 2 1/4” mauve poinsettia paper with white cardstock, leaving a 1/16” border. Glue to the center of the holly paper.
- Using black pigment ink, stamp the greeting at the top of the card and while the ink is still wet, sprinkle with black embossing powder. Heat with gun. Stamp the wreath twice onto Ultra White cardstock and heat with gun to set the pigment ink.
- Color the wreath bow: Use BT8 to outline details and 1B3 to color in. Color the Wreath: Use JG1 to outline leaves and GT2 to color in. Color the berries with dots of glitter glue and let dry.
- Place a Foil frame label over one of the wreaths and cut around the outside edge of the frame, leaving a 1/32” border. Cut out the remaining wreath, leaving a 1/32” border around the inside and outside edge. Foam tape over the first wreath. Glue the foil frame to the mauve poinsettia border. Use 1/2” wide light blue grosgrain ribbon to make a bow and glue to the bottom of the frame.
- Cover the top 2 1/2” of the card with holly paper and the bottom with mauve poinsettia paper. Glue a 5”x1/2” strip of blue dot paper over the paper seam. Stamp and emboss the sentiment to the foil label from the inside of the frame. Foam tape above the blue dot border. Color and cut out a spring of holly leaves and glue to the bottom right corner. Add glitter glue to berries and let dry.
