Festive Friday with Avery Elle: 'Tis the Season

The challenge this week at Festive Friday is to create a holiday card with a wreath.  I have a gorgeous wreath from Avery Elle, so on my last day as a guest on their blog, I put these two together.

Tis the Season

This wreath is so unique and so different from most wreaths - it is fun to work with.  It has an open and airy look so works perfectly with CAS cards, but I'm sure it could be fancied up too!!  I used it a few weeks ago on tags - one in pinks and one in kraft colors - so it can take on a lot of looks.


Thank you so much to Jamie at Avery Elle - I had a very enjoyable month working together.  I actually noticed Avery Elle with its very first release (bought it all!) and have liked everything that I have seen (and bought) since then!!  Stamps and sequins! They are definitely on my list of faves!
  • Stamps: Avery Elle Winter Wreath
  • Paper: Papertrey Ink Ripe Avocado
  • Ink: Papertrey Ink Ripe Avocado, Pure Poppy, Delicata Golden Glitz
  • Accessories: Stampin' Up embossing folder, Spellbinders circle dies, MFT fishtail dies, misc ribbon

Love how you arranged this on a "donut" cut out! I never thought to do that!! So smart - and as always, the card is just lovely!

Wonderful CAS beauty. I loved your write-up too. The wreath stamp is somewhat reminiscent of PTI's newest wreath I think. I do like the airiness of this stamp. And the wood grain embossed panel behind the wreath is a nice effect as well. Kim, your designs are always a delight.

Hugs,

Love the wreath--so simple, yet elegant. The dots on the bow are just the right match, too!

Is that a real ribbon?
:-)
Just kidding, your card is FAB!
And the dots on the bow match perfectly with the wreath!
Love the angle of the banner with the sentiment, I'll keep that one in mind!
