Christmas Wreath

I made this card for both the Winter Wonderland (Pink and/or Purple PLUS Aqua and/or Green) Challenge and the 52 {Christmas} Card Throwdown (Wreaths) Challenge.


I layered green paper from the Cosy Christmas Collection (a magazine freebie) onto purple pearlescent card and attached it to the front of a white pearlescent card blank.   I used Versafine Imperial Purple ink to stamp the Woodware Bubble Wreath onto white pearlescent card, embossed it with clear embossing powder and used the Woodware Squared Corner Punch.  I cut a small slit into the card just above the top of the wreath and attached a piece of purple ribbon, fastening it to the rear of the card.  I mounted this square onto purple pearlescent card and attached to the front of the card.  To coloured the baubles with Promarkers and rhinestones, before applying Glossy Accents to the Promarker bubbles.  To finish, I attached a small purple ribbon to the top of the wreath.
