Gingerbread Wreath

So, this is one of those cards that just happen. 

You all know the ones, you start off with a very clear picture in your mind and about 5 minutes after you start, it looks nothing like that idea you had but you carry on anyway.

And then something happens, and somehow you end up with a card you love!

Well this is one of those!

For the background I randomly stamped the Candy Cane, Gingerbread and and lady (Christmas Minis - Set 1) in red and brown, distressed it, doodled around the edge and mounted it onto a piece of red card before it was mounted onto an 8 inch square base card.

To make the topper I stamped the Christmas Wreath onto a piece of card and trimmed it down then coloured it in using water and distress inks and left it to dry. Onto Kraft card I stamped and heat embossed 3 of each of the Candy Cane, Gingerbread and and lady, and cut them out leaving a narrow border. When the wreath was dry I distressed around the edge, then 2nd generation stamped the Candy Cane along the edges and doodled too. The wreath was then mounted onto read card and then added to the base card. The Candy Canes and Gingerbread people added too.

Next I stamped Christmas Wishes onto a scrap of card, trimmed it down, distressed and doodled around it as before. This was then mounted onto red card and attached to the card.

Finally I added some ribbon and pins.

I hope you like how it turned out too!
