Traditional Christmas Wreath

The wreath on this card was created using a series of layering stencils. I used a light and a dark touch so it looks like many colours were used. I spattered the background using three colours of shimmer brushes. The sentiment was stamped and die cut twice - once from white and a second time from red glitter paper. Those pieces were offset to create a shadow effect. Green metallic thread was added behind the sentiment and I placed some clear gems around the card. The front was adhered to a piece of red glitter paper and then to a dark green background. This card looks better in person as the glitter is much more evident. 

Products used are as follows: 

Paper: Evergreen Cardstock, Red Glitter Paper (both CTMH), Neenah Solar White Cardstock 

Stamps: Thrill of Hope (PFS)

Inks: Emerald City, Evergreen, Fresh Pear, Grassy Knoll, Key Lime, Berrylicious, Candy Apple (all PFS)

Accessories: Thrill of Hope Layering Stencils and Dies (PFS), Shimmer Brushes - Candy Apple, Green Apple, Evergreen (CTMH), Glacier Gems (PFS), Green Metallic Thread (misc.)
