Peek a Boo Wonderous Wreath

What type of Christmas cards do you like to send?
Over the top with lots of details?
How about a single layer Quick and Easy?
OR Maybe you like to do something somewhere in the middle.

Today I'm featuring a Clean and Simple Christmas Look that's Quick but it still has a WOW factor. How fun is this? A truly unique look using the  Wonderous Wreath PhotoPolymer stamp and Frameits die cut. FYI, this set and die are available for 15% off when you Bundle them together. 

The stampers at my class on Sunday were able to create this unique cut out wreath in no time. Here's How.....
1.  Make a whisper white card base or use the 
     White Cut and Ready Bases
     20 prescored, precut cards : 5-1/2" x 8-1/2", 
     scored at 4-1/4". Finished card size: 4-1/4" x 5-1/2".
2.  Using the center die from the Wonderous Wreath Framelit die, 
     position on your card stock with the tab facing down toward 
     the bottom of the card and run through the Big Shot machine and
3.  Stamp first layer of leaves in Coastal Cabana ink matching up the 
     cut leaves you just die cut being sure to have the tab facing down 
     in the same position of the die.
4.  Using Old Olive ink stamp the second layer of leaves over
     the Coastal Cabana ones.
5.  Stamp the berries with the third stamp in Real Red ink.

6.   Die cut the Noel sentiment from the Wonderous Wreath framelit
      set in Real Red card stock, place a layer of wax paper between
      the card stock and the die. I love how easy it is to remove the
      fine detail of the sentiment..I also use a toothpick to pop it out
      through the holes in the die.
7.   Apply a thin line of glue and adhere over the edge of the wreath.
8.   Die cut a Sweet little glimmer bow using Silver Glimmer paper.
9.   Create a 2nd and 3rd spot of bling with Rhinestone Basics.
      ( odd numbers work best together ) 
      attach to each end of the sentiment.

Oops....a mistake, but not for you!

A couple of my stampers accidently got ink on their white card base from the ink that got on the tab portion of the stamp and then unfortunately transferred to the card.  FEAR NOT, just cut off that 3/4" off the bottom and add a strip of real red card stock to the underside. You may even like this version better...lol.
