Jingle Bells for Festive Friday Challenge #98

Hoop Wreath for Paper Players #569

Happy Sunday.

It's the fabulous Anne Marie's turn to host our Paper Players challenge this week - and it's sketch week.

Instead of using DSP for my background, I created my own by embossing my Fond of Foliage background stamp from the Greetery onto Neenah Solar White 80# card stock and then cut that into panels to fit the sketch.

Next I stamped and die-cut the leaves from the Hoop Wreath set - also from the Greetery and paired it with the Hoop Wreath stamp set.  I die cut them and then arranged them on the wreath.  I added a couple of die-cut circles in red and white and added the sentiment.  I love the way it turned out.

Here's my card:

Hoop Wreath (1 of 1)-5

I hope you will join us and play along.  We can't wait to see what you create with Anne Marie's sketch.  As always, the design team have some great inspiration for you.

I'll be back later in the week with another card.  In the meantime, warm hugs and prayers for those of you who need a little lift tonight.



Card recipe:

  • Background stamp:  Fond of Foliage - The Greetery
  • Stamps and Dies:  Hoop Wreath and Hoop Wreath stamp set - The Greetery
