Modern Spiro Wreath

>> Tuesday, November 24, 2015

Hi Everyone,

I went with a traditional red and green color combo for my card share today.  I have to admit they're my favorite colors to use when making Christmas cards, because they immediately make me think of the holidays.  I personally don't pair these colors together at any other time :)   

I stamped the newly released Joy to you Christmas Greeting in red dye ink and die cut it using a round Spellbinders die. Choosing to create a modern wreath look, I stamped and fussy cut the Circle Spiro Design and colored that up in red and green using my Copic markers.   I wanted it to stand out from my background that I made using the Splatter Background stamp, so I attached it to another die cut circle.


It need some embellishment, so I added the Holly leaf that was colored and fussy cut too, and finished it off with a ribbon and some glitter glue on the berries. 

Thanks for visiting the blog today and be sure to participate in our weekly challenges for your chance at a great prize!

Happy Holidays!
Karin

Karin, you have such a knack for using stamps together. I have never seen that Spirograph image and I want it - looks like those oool mesh ribbon wreaths that are so popular. This is a great card! Love it. Hugz

It looks braided! So cool! I never would have thought of doing that with that stamp! The red and green really does shout Christmas too!
