Glittery xmas wreath.


Hi everyone, I can't believe how quickly time is passing!
Christmas will be here soon and there's so many things to get organized!

I really wanted to play along in the CAS Mixup Card Challenge where the theme is  to use glitter, stamping and at least 1 other element on your card. I don't own  much glitter but do have frantage embossing enamel which has glitter in it. The colour I used was aged scarlet. In addition to stamping I've also used diecutting and embossing, both wet and dry.




and to challenge at The Card Concept where they have this gorgeous inspiration pic. I was inspired by the pretty pinks and white textured background, I think my card is clean and simple.


Supplies:
Memory Box catalina wreath die; versamark ink; Aged scarlet frantage embossing enamel; Annabelle Stamps sentiment stamp; versafine ink & clear ep; Darice crackled embossing folder.

Thanks for visiting,
Cathy x

  7. The frantage is a beautiful color and made a lovely wreath. That is also a great embossing folder that can be used for a background on any card.
