Remarkable Wreath Extravaganza!

For the next several days, I will be posting cards I have recently made with this AMAZING and VERSATILE stamp set.........Remarkable Wreath. You can purchase it, Remarkable Wreath C1473 for $15.50, from my website OR attend my upcoming classes on Saturday, Dec 3rd or Sunday, Dec 4th. We will be making versions of the upcoming cards. Please email me for my class descriptions.

This card began as an what would work with White Daisy pigment ink. I stamped the wreath image in Cocoa ink on Barn Red cardstock. Then I stamped the berry image and sentiment with White Daisy. I find when you are stamping with this pigment ink on dark coloured cardstock, you have to wait a bit for the ink to dry so you can really see what it will look like. You could use your heat gun to speed up the process, but I just let it sit and the ink became much brighter with time.

The patterned paper is from Mischeif, as well as, the border image. The border is the zip strip, which is new to Close To My Heart's paper. It is patterned on one side and on the reverse is the paper kit's name and colours it is comprised of.

I cut the bracket shape with my CTMH Art Philosophy cartridge. The lighter mat is cut at 1/4 inch larger. I added White Daisy ric rac ribbon and some Bitty Sparkles. I also used a sponge to ink some piece edges with Desert Sand ink.

All supplies are Close To My Heart, unless noted.
