Merry Monday and Pals Paper Arts: Christmas Wreath
I'm right in the middle of the long Labor Day weekend and what better way to spend it than to make Christmas cards!! After I post this we are heading out to the local Smokin' Brew BBQ competition. What an odd mix of a day! Fall festivities and frosty Christmas cards!
I love the mix of colors in this paper pack - Mistletoe Magic by MME. It's not a new pack but I still like it. The greens are "limier" than the traditional Christmas papers and the reds tend towards a brick color. It's different and fresh. So I pulled out one of my favorite Christmas sets that lends itself so well to simple cards - Signature Christmas by Clearly Besotted Stamps. I played around for quite awhile with adding some beads/pearls/bling on the wreath but I ended up leaving it plain because I like the simple pattern.
I used the wreath from the set for the current Merry Monday Christmas Challenge.
And since I love to hang wreaths - the sketch at Pals Paper Arts was the perfect inspiration (although I just noticed that they clearly want three layers so you'll have to imagine a green layer as the base!)
