I wasn't kidding when I told you that I've made many projects that I have yet to share on my blog. I'm so far behind, in fact, that I can't remember when I made the card I'm going to share with you today. I know I made it for a swap, but for the life of me I can't remember what swap it was for. It could have been for a downline meeting, or maybe for the Control Freak group. I even made two versions of the card and I can't remember which one I chose to make for the swap. So I'll share both of them with you.
I used the Wonderous Wreath stamp set and the coordinating dies to make this card. (If you keep reading, you'll see that I have a video tutorial posted below with a few tips and tricks on how to use this stamp set and dies together.) The center of the wreath is cut out using the dies, but it's difficult to see because I layered the wreath on top of a die-cut banner. If you look closely at the photo, you can see that I used the On Point Embossing Folder on the Soft Sky card stock.
I wasn't sure how I felt about the die-cut bow on the wreath, so I made second version using ribbon instead.
Which do you prefer? I *think* I ended up using real ribbon in the swap, but I'm not 100% sure.
The inside of the card is very simple. I used the On Point Embossing Folder on the lower portion of the Soft Sky layer. I finished it by adding some Real Red ribbon to separate the embossed portion from the blank portion where you write a message.
Like I said before, I created a video tutorial for you to watch with a few tips and tricks on how I line up the stamps and the dies. I hope you find it helpful.
