HA Wreath Xmas Card

Created this Christmas card using a new Hero Arts stamp I bought at Michaels Sun for 40% off and also got an add'l 25% off with coupon. I bought a bunch of Christmas: stamps & things 40% off and got add'l 25% off. Today I returned all but 2 stamps one of which is the wreath since I felt I overspent too much even with the sale.

Used colors: red, green, white & pink only. Stamped the wreath using green ink on white cardstock. Stamped the wreath again on red cardstock, fussy cut out the red bow and attached it with foam adhesive for dimension. Used pink glitter for a sparkle look on the circles/bulbs. Used cardstock - green base & white layer. Stamped HA sentiment using red ink.



























Supplies List 


glitter: pink
ink: Memento - Cottage Ivy, Lady Bug
paper: cardstock - green, red <-- scrap, white
