Christmas Wreath

I created this quick and easy card for a sketch challenge on Stampin' Connection. I know it's been so long since I've posted a sketch card, but you're going to see a bunch of them real soon. Here is the most recent one:

Stamps: Bright Hopes
Cardstock: Crumb Cake, Whisper White
DSP: Silver Glimmer Paper
Ink: Real Red, Crumb Cake, Early Espresso
Accessories: Corner Rounder Punch, 5/8" Old Olive Satin Ribbon, Basic Pearls Jewel Accents, Tombow Multi-Purpose Adhesive, Stampin' dimensionals, Stampin' Sponge

Here is the sketch that was created by yours truly:

This card was super quick and simple! The card base is Crumb Cake cardstock cut at 4 1/4" x 11" and scored at 5 1/2". The card front was stamped with the snowflake image in Crumb Cake ink. The bottom corners were punched with the Corner Rounder punch and then the sides of the card front were sponged with Early Espresso ink. The greeting was stamped in the bottom right hand corner of the card front.

The wreath image was stamped in Real Red ink on a 2 1/2" x 2 1/2" piece of Whisper White cardstock. The edges were sponged with Early Espresso ink before the cardstock was adhered to a 2 3/4" x 2 3/4" piece of Silver Glimmer Paper with Tombow Multi-Purpose Adhesive. Small pearls were added to some of the dots on the wreath. This panel was adhered to the card front with Stampin' Dimensionals. To finish it off I wrapped a piece of 5/8" Old Olive Satin Ribbon around the card front and tied it into a bow.

That's it! Super easy and quick Christmas card, with a little sparkle of course!

Thanks for stopping by!
