Happy Holidays Series | White Christmas ft. Lawn Fawn "Large Wreath" Dies

Hi everyone, thank you for stopping by. I hope you're having a great day.

It's the final day of this year's Happy Holiday Series!! I cannot believe it's all done for another year. It's been such a fantastic ride, and I honestly could not have pushed through without all of your support and encouragement! The holidays are just crazy here with three kids and multiple extended families, so thank you all for your comments, shares and likes. They mean so much to me!

For a while it didn't look like we were really going to be having a white Christmas, we had summer time temperatures for most of November and the first half of December, but then last week the temperature dropped and the white stuff came falling down so we'll have a white Christmas after all.

Today's card is rather fitting, as I went with a classic white monochrome to finish off the holiday series.

To begin, I used the "Large Wreath" die set by Lawn Fawn to cut a bunch of boughs from shimmering white cardstock as well as from some white glittery cardstock. I cut the bow from silver cardstock and used Tombow Mono Multi glue to put it together and my reverse tweezers to hold it in place until it was dry.

I used the same liquid glue to adhere the bases of the boughs to the ring, filling it in with more pieces then adding the glitter boughs around until it looked just the way I wanted it to.

I adhered the bow to the bottom of the wreath then set that aside to dry.

For the background panel I used Lawn Fawn's "Wood Grain Backdrops" stamp with CTMH Linen ink to get a delicate tone on tone panel. I adhered that to the front of my standard A2 sized card base and then mounted the wreath to the front.

I had considered adding a greeting to the front of the card, but I didn't want to add any more to it. The simplistic design and the colours were just enough for me. So in a move that was completely unlike me I opted to not further embellish the card.

I hope you like today's card and are inspired to create something of your own. If you haven't already, please follow me on the right side bar or over on Facebook, so you don't miss any future posts. Drop me a line in the comments section below and let me know what you think.
