Chickadee Leaf Bunches Wreath
by Trina Pham


Hello everyone.  I have another Christmas card to share today using several products from the current 2023 Christmas collection.  I was about to make
a classic circle wreath, but somehow went rogue. 😂*lol*

Anyway, all layers / pieces were die cut from white paper, then ink blended with distress inks (DI) using blender brushes.

DI used:
chickadee - Brushed Corduroy, Black Soot 
leaf bunches - Speckled Egg, Faded Jeans 
pine needles - Shabby Shutters, Rustic Wilderness 
hexagon frame - Gathered Twigs


For the background, the Aurora Snowflake Frame was die cut from Bristol paper and adhered to a Bristol panel for a faux dry embossed look.  The hexagon Stylish Frame was then used to die cut an opening from it.  Next, on a scrap piece of Bristol paper slightly larger than the opening, the sentiment was heat embossed with silver embossing powder before ombré ink blending Stormy Sky DI at the top.  Wiped off excess ink with a paper towel (aka emboss resist), then glued it behind the opening. 



The brown hexagon frame looked out of place, so it was inked with VersaMark ink and heat embossed in silver to match the sentiment.  Assembled the card onto a white card base, then added falling snow with a white gel pen to finish.

Thank you for joining me today.   Have a wonderful day.
