It is time though for the girls in the Christmas Card Club to show our next makes and Rita set the theme of Christmas Wreaths. I didn't feel like creating anything from my old christmas card stash but as I'm now woefully behind in my card numbers I had a look in my freebie christmas papers and found an assortment of wreaths so here they are made up into cards. Should have posted these this morning so apologies to Rita for being late but lighting was abysmal last night and not much better on today but needs must.
First 3 cards are all door wreaths which are by Hunkydory and a freebie paper set from Making Cards Dec 2015 called Traditional Christmas.
This first image had a black door and grey brick walling so was just crying out to have a black/white design paper added behind it. This was a Making Cards Freebie paper in their Christmas Papercraft Special 2017. I glued the paper door image onto a scrap of cardboard and when dry fussy cut along the die cut edge. Ran a gel marker pen around the outside to soften the cut edge. I made a card base from silver cardstock adhered the design paper and then attached the door image on top. The Noel sentiment was from the same printed sheet as the doors.
Next 3 cards are wreaths from a Making Cards Freebie magazine Christmas Edition 2015.
Digi Design paper for this card is from Nitwits 'Christmas Linen Too' collection and called Stargreen.
The yellow tartan bow on this crd and the one below both cried out for a 'Moroccan Gold card stock to be used with them. The image and sentiment were glued to cardboard and then cut out and raised with 3D double sided tape for dimension. The sentiment is from a sheet in Making Cards Freebie Christmas Papercraft special 2017.
On this next card I found the snippet of green cardstock in my odds box which I had previously die cut the scallop shape from and used on a previous project. It fitted the holly wreath image perfectly which I simply attached behind before adhering to the digi design tartan paper from Nitwits 'Christmas Linen too' called appropriately 'Tartan Green'. Sentiment was another freebie from the same papers above.
Card base is silver cardstock to which I adhered raspberry card to. The paper image is glued to cardboard and then cut to size. The sentiment is from the same set and given the same treatment . I raised the image and the sentiment up on 3D double sided tape for added dimension. There were smaller images of the same picture in the set so I cut and adhered one on the inside of the card too.
