Watercolor Wreath Christmas Card

9 days ’till Christmas! Can you believe that? I am a little behind with sending Christmas cards this year… but almost finish today! 😀 A lot of writing for sure, but my oldest is helping with writing cards this year, that is fun 🙂   Making Christmas cards are super fun for us. And today, I would love to share a card I made to play along with Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge, Candy Cane.

I am inspired by the Candy canes and wreath. I used couple retired products from CTMH for this card. Oldie but still goodie 🙂

For the base layers, I used Sparkle and Shine paper packet that one side of the pattern is candy cane and the other is polkadots. I cut 2 sizes of squares, 5.25″ (candy cane side) and 4.75″ (polkadots side) for base the layers. Then on a watercolor paper (3.25″ x 3.25″), I stamped the wreath branch with Chocolate exclusive ink pad and sprayed with some water. And then I stamped the berry dots with Ruby exclusive ink pad and sprayed with some water, for some watercolor effect. With the same technique, I stamped the sentiment in the middle of the wreath with Olive exclusive ink pad.

I added some natural baker’s twine and some pearl adhesive gems on it. Then added it on the card using 3D foam adhesive. I love how the watercolor effect using dye inks turned out 🙂
