Sweet Stamps- Traditional Christmas Colors

The Sweet Stamps challenge to use Traditional Christmas Colors.

 And, what could be more traditional than Red and Green. I had fun making this card- I have seen many versions of a wreath on a door, and I thought this Globecraft Piccolo Classy Circle Frame would look great as a wreath.  I used Mossy Glen Enamel EP on the frame/wreath. I added Red Rhinestones on the frame.
 The wreath hanger is from the GP Braided Border set- from a waste piece of the borders.

I used the center (waste) piece of the set and cut it down, then embossed it with the 24 K Gold Enamel EP. (look between the braids). I embossed it twice- and TIP- make sure the embossing is totally cool before you apply the next layer of Enamel EP Adhesive.

 The Merry Christmas sentiment was also embossed using the 24K Gold Enamel EP.

The ribbon was white and gold- and I used Copic Sketch markers R37 and R39 to color over it and turned it Red to match my Traditional Colors card.

Please come over to the Sweet Stamps challenge blog and see the inspiration from the other Sweet Stamps DT members. We'd love to have you join us : )

Thanks for stopping by!
