Christmas Wishes

Happy October! I can't believe how time flies.

I think I'll start October off with a Christmas card :)

I love wreaths. There's just something so cozy about them. I used the holly stamps (there are 4 different ones - patterned and plain) from Very Vintage Christmas to create my wreath. The holly was stamped onto Rustic Cream cardstock and then colored with my Copics. I stamped a few extra leaves and then cut them out, filling in any empty spots in the wreath.

There was a perfect space inside the wreath for the sentiment, and I added a few berries. If you've never tried this before - use your Copics to customize your embellishments! These little adhesive pearls are actually gold, and I just colored them in to match my project.

Finishing touches include a little ink around the edges, some stitched ribbon, and a button. The card base is from the Holiday Vintage Prints patterned paper collection.

Hope you like it! Have a great evening!
