What a fun Christmas card this turned out to be! I got to try out several new Stampin' Up! products and test out using the Daydream Medallions stamp set and coordinating Framelits to create a holiday wreath. Can't wait to test some more. ;)
The woodgrain background was created using the new Textured Impressions Embossing Folder with Early Espresso Core'dinations Card Stock. The new Stampin' Sanding Block works great - just a light sanding revealed the lighter core color and brought the woodgrain pattern to life.
After stamping the medallion, I cropped the center with a circle punch while there was still "extra" card stock to hold on to. The final cut with the coordinating framelit from the Floral Frames collection completed my wreath shape.
Dressing up the wreath are Pearl Basic Jewels, dots of Cherry Cobbler Dazzling Details, and a strip of the new Scalloped Tulle Ribbon tied in a bow around the wreath. The greeting was stamped on a scrap of Very Vanilla and adhered behind the wreath.
For the circular shapes, I embossed scraps with one of the Delicate Designs Embossing Folders and cropped them stratigically with circle punches. (Card layout courtesy of Mojo Monday.)
