Avery Elle: Winter Wreath Gift Cards

Avery Elle has a new stamp set with a beautiful big wreath called Winter Wreath.  It also has a bow and pine cones and little dots for ornaments and sentiments in the signature Avery Elle script!  But instead of going big - I just stamped a portion of the wreath and made a little 3.25" card for tucking into gifts.

Tis the Season

The set also comes with a "to" and a "from" stamp so you can even personalize it!

I did give it a little sparkle by adding glossy accents to the berries and then dusting it with a fine glitter.


I used the cheerful colors from this week's Merry Monday color challenge.



And here's what I love about creating my own cards.  Same basic card...different colors...different embellishments...an entirely different look!!  (I love those teeny little pinecones!!)

Hi Kim. Two fabulous cards. I love both versions ... the same, but different :) The partial image is such a wonderful design ... and the perfect way to make a smaller card with a large image. Thanks for the inspiration! And thank you for joining us at Merry Monday. Loll xx

What a pretty card, Kim and I love how clean and simple it is. The glitter on the berries is the perfect touch and the offset wreath looks great stamped that way. Thank you for joining us for Merry Monday.
