This month's new Holiday Wreath Builder set has some really gorgeous elements and greetings in it that inspired me to do something other than a wreath! I love the scalloped circle frame, so I repeated that three times, in GKD Red Velvet and Jellybean Green, then stamped a border (again, three times, starting in the middle and then on either side), and the large snowflakes and greeting in GKD Christmas Pine.
I added a few swags in the red and green, carefully inking directly to the stamp with the two colors before stamping, and then added the smaller snowflakes in red around the large green ones. I finished of this single layer card with some Red Berry Nuvo Crystal Drops to accent the flakes and flowers. Envelope is coordinating GKD JellyBean Green.
The Holiday Wreath Builder also works great with my Holiday Frame! I stamped up a festive door (in GKD Slate) with the frame, centering the builder frame inside in Fresh Asparagus, then stamped the holly, pine cones and berries by hand instead of using the MISTI or wreath builder template, just using the stamped ring as my guide (Christmas Pine holly, full strength and then stamped off, Red Velvet and Dark Chocolate) Since I put the greeting in the center of the wreath, I added the snowflake border across the center below just to fill in the white space and add interest, and then added the door handle element from my coordinating Holiday Frame Fillers set and color it in with a lighter gray marker.
Be sure to do a side fold card so you can open the door! :) Envelope is GKD Slate Gray. This will look so elegant when I address it with a white gel pen! :)
Our incentive set this month is a must have, year-round! These gorgeous Skeleton Leaves and greetings are your free for a limited time with a purchase of $75 or more. it will be added directly to your cart. :)
I used the GKD 2018 Add On Ink Cube collection spots to stamp the leaves (Plum Punch, Coral Reef) plus Fresh Asparagus on white Pure Luxury, and then in Versamark to emboss just a few leaves plus the sentiment with GKD Rose Gold embossing powder. This mat is layered on GKD Plum Punch and a GKD Sandy Beach Pure Luxury card base. Colored envelope is coordinating GKD Coral Reef.
