CHRISTMAS WREATH

I hope you’ve recovered from Christmas in July.  August Stamp Camp brings another Christmas Card that is cheerful and

07.28.20 Christmas WreathI always think of pine wreaths at Christmas.  The holiday wreath shown here is die cut with the Wreath Builder dies.  Two Old Olive wreaths are layered on a Shaded Spruce wreath and mounted to the Real Red card that features holiday DSP.  A red satin bow and several red rhinestones festoon the finished wreath.  Although hard to see, Wink of Stella is brushed on the DSP red bells, and on about half of the leaves on the middle Old Olive wreath.  This gives a glittery effect but is not overpowering.

07.28.20 Christmas Wreath GoldThe same wreath is shown here with gold ribbon and larger gold gems.  Perhaps you would like to weave the narrow gold ribbon thru the leaves of the wreath.  By the time that idea triggered my brain, I had already mounted the wreath to the card.  Arrange a Wreath has many stamps for this wreath and features several sentiments such as the Merry Christmas shown here.  The stamp set and dies are available as a bundle which saves 10%.

The simple message layer features a strip of the holiday DSP that is brushed with Wink of Stella.  An option is the heart-shaped LOVE die shown above.  The heart could be used on the message layer or even nestled in the greenery of the wreath.  Although this card may look difficult, it is really quite easy and fun to create!

In case you’re wondering when August Stamp Camp is, we are back on schedule.  We are still limiting crafters to 4 per day, requiring masks and frequent hand washing.  Snacks and masks breaks will take place on the deck.  I am changing the start and end times to allow for a bit more time to wipe down stamps, inks, etc. between uses.  Please bring your patience.  Cost remains the same – $14 for any 4 cards and $3 for each additional card. 

August Stamp Camp:  Thursday August 6 from 10 am to 4 pm; Friday August 7 from 10 am to 4 pm; and Saturday August 8 from 9 am to 4 pm,  Please let me know if these dates/times conflict with your schedule.  In order to limit the dates to 4 crafters, please notify me as soon as possible with the date you are coming and which cards you wish to do.

Hopefully you have your holiday occasions catalog.  Mine arrived yesterday.  Please notify me if yours does not arrive as I have paid for these deliveries. 

Blessings, Rosemary – (h)630.759.3089 – (c)630.965.1965 – paperrose01@aol.com
