Welcome to the Stampin’ Creative Blog Hop for Nov! The theme for our hop today is Deck the Halls.
I knew I wanted to used the sentiment from the Christmas Gleaming Stamp Set as the focus for this card, but I have paired this up with the Beautiful Boughs Dies.
I have cut a selection of the branches in Garden Green and Old Olive and layered them on to the wreath, but this is a particularly special card for a special person and lights up! This was inspired by the fabulous Char Wijers. I had the pleasure of spending time with Charry during the recent OnStage and she gave to me the most beautiful card in the First Frost paper with a light up wreath and so I was inspired to make a light up wreath of my own.
It is not easy to photograph to show you the light on the card but hopefully you can get the feel from this photo below.
The mini wire set is stuck on the back of the white layer and I have punched a hole at the top right hand corner of where I wanted to wreath to be. I have pulled through the wire / light and wrapped around in to the circle and taped these on to the card first. One in place I have layered the branches over the top of the lights.
Hopefully I have been able to explain this so you can see how I have put this together, however I will also share a live video making this card on Sunday 1st Dec at 2030 GMT on my Facebook Page – ‘Emma Goddard – Coastal Crafter‘
