Holidays Wreath Card Set

     Stamping is so easy and versatile for making Christmas cards, as you can make a lot at once, yet change it up with different colors of ink or embossing powders! I personally get bored doing repetitive cards over the holidays, so I kept the same design here, but added different colors of paint, ribbons, and embossing powders, featuring the Holiday Wreath Unmounted Stamp Set from Red Rubber Designs. Holiday Wreath is the Spotlight Stamp for December which means you can get it for 40% off it's regular price with any order!


        These cards were made with Kraft Cardstock, and dry painted with two different colors of paint in a vertical line to mimic wood grain. The base of the cards were cut at 3-3/4" X 5-1/4". Then I cut a rectangle at 3-1/4" X 4-3/4", and scored lines 1/4" away on the back side, to make it look like a panel on a door. I used Palette inks around the edges and over the scored lines, to really bring it out. Before adhering the cut panel to the card, I added a brad to the right for the door knobs. Then I embossed the wreaths on the doors, as well as the sentiment in the center. To finish them off, I added some Stickles on the wreaths, with a bow on top, made from ribbon.


     Here's a closer look at the scored lines on the blue card! To save time you could always use a wood grain paper, instead of painting, and ink for your stamping, instead of embossing powders.
