Noel Wreath

I've made another Christmas card for my box -  and again (see yesterday's post), I'm using a new stamp recently purchased from Lesia Zgharda Designs.  This stamp is called Branch and Snowflakes  from her Nov 2017 release.
The actual stamp is just the arch of 2 branches and snowflakes so I stamped it twice to create a wreath.  I embossed it in silver on a Dark Indigo card panel (it's navy blue but it may look black to you?!) and added the white die cut Noel to the center of the wreath up on foam dots.  I layered the Dark Indigo panel to a Foiled Silver card panel and then to a white card base.

I'm joining in with the CAS Christmas Challenge for September

Beautiful artsy wreath Julia. The silver embossing looks awesome on the dark blue card (it does look blue to me). So pretty with the die-cut noel in the center. Wonderful CAS design! xx

I love the crisp color combination, Julia! Clever to make a wreath by stamping the arch-shaped stamp twice. The color contrast and the foam dots make the die-cut sentiment really pop. Great CAS Wreath card! Hideko xx
