Woodland Wreath

Hello again!  Tonight I'm posting a card made for this week's challenge at Just Add Ink, where they have a lovely sketch to play with.

I thought this would be perfect for making a Thanksgiving card with the Wondrous Wreath as the main focal point.

I started with a panel of Very Vanilla embossed with the new Woodland TIEF (LOVE this folder!).  I used a brayer to apply Delightful Dijon ink on the raised panel before running it through the Big Shot.  It was then adhered to a base of Cajun Craze.

The wreath was initially stamped in So Saffron, then stamped with the layering stamp with the leaves inked in Tangelo Twist.  Finally I used a Cajun Craze marker to had color a few of the leaves to add more dimension.  It was really fun and rather therapeutic!  Once that was complete and the wreath cut, it was layered atop a pennant of retired textured Pumpkin Pie card stock.

This card will be mailed to family out of town, so I kept it pretty basic.  But it could certainly be stepped up with some sequins or jewels.

Thanks so much for your visit!  I'd love to hear from you if you have a moment to leave a comment.  I've included a link above and encourage you to use it to enjoy all the wonderful inspiration at JAI.
