Christmas Wreath
by Jenny Griffiths

 Hello Memory Box friends,

  How about a slightly non-traditional color combination on this holiday wreath card today.  I'm including some grey, red, black and white to change things up a bit. 

Merry Christmas Wreath  I added texture and dimension by stenciling the snowflakes onto the metallic grey panel--the first thing people do when they see this type of stenciling is touch it!  It's automatic--they just want to feel it to see if it's truly textured---try it, you'll see what I mean.  I used opaque matte texture paste which is easy to spread and dries very fast---I use it in my Memory Box classes and it's always a hit.  I'll show you another example of it at the end of this post.

The details on the wreath were colored with Tombow markers--but alcohol markers, watercolors or colored pencils would be beautiful too.  A few yellow gemstones added a bit of holiday sparkle.

And that big fluffy bow--I love it!  It's one of the Open Studio dies so it comes in a set including different sizes--this is the middle size.  When die cut and folded, it creates a perfectly formed dimensional bow and you can use the two streamers or not---so versatile.

Here's another example of the texture paste stenciling on a snowman card---hope you give it a try!


I'll be teaching Memory Box card classes at The Stamp Addict on Sept 24 and another class and Make N Take at Stamp Delights on Sept 21.  I'd love to see you there!

 Thanks for stoppying by today! Jennysig


WOW Jenny, what fantastic cards. The wreath is beautiful and that bow is just something else...GORGEOUS!
