Bramble Wreath Card




I have made quite a few different Christmas cards but haven't had the time to post. Today I like to show you a card that is very simple but I think, oh so elegant. But it took forever to decide what papers to use and after many tries it was only one DP. It is from last years Martha Stewart christmas papers. The Bramble Wreath is from Memory Box stamped with PTI Dark Chocolate on PTI cream cardstock and layered on brown PTI CS and adhered with pop dots. The beautiful lace is from Websters Pages and the ribbon is from my stash. The rhinestones are from Kaiser Crafts and stash. I forgot to take pictures of the inside but I did pretty much the same layering as on the outside and stamped the sentiment in the middle of the wreath.

I couldn't decide which picture of the front of the card was better. The lighter picture shows the sparkle of the rhinestones better. I think the close-up of the wreath makes the rhinestones look weird, like I glued them with the backside up.
I made several of these and 2 of them went across 2 different oceans, the Pacific and the Atlantic. I hope they get to their destinations soon.

Thanks for stopping by and thank you for all your sweet comments.
