The Spirit of Christmas
by Michelle Bala

Hello there! Michelle here, sharing a non traditional Christmas wreath. I used the stamp set Berry Wreath and the coordinating die. I stamped the wreath using Memento Ink in desert sand and used a no line coloring technique.  I used Copic Markers to color in shades B21, B23, B39, BV04 (blue shaded berries); BG11, BG23, BG75, BV20 (aqua shaded berries); W2, W5, BG96, BG99 (leaves). Die cut after coloring is complete.

Trim and score a card base 4 1/4 x 5 1/2.  I trimmed a piece of black gingham pattern paper from Christmas Plaid 6x6 paper pad.  Adhere to the card base. Situate the wreath and mark where you want to trim the excess. Also mark where you want your sentiment.

Emboss the sentiment with gold powder. Adhere the wreath with foam tape. For a finishing touch I splattered some gold paint, scattered some sequins,  and added a twine bow with bells. 

Thanks for stopping by for a peek!

Hope you enjoy your weekend!

I REALLY like those colours ! And the black & white twine adds a perky twist too. Excellent !

Michelle, this is so lovely - you've used my favorite blue and the gingham is icing on the cake!
