Snowflake Wreath


This card was made for the challenge on Splitcoaststampers,  CAS299. The challenge was Simply Snowflakes. I do have two snowflakes placed in my arrangement.  

I'm using this wonderful Sarasota Stamps Vine Wreath that was found on Amazon. The company is now out of business. Someone told me they found it online at Wal-Mart, also. 

The berries are painted on with the small end of my round stylus and some Americana acrylic paint...just dabbing it on.

I added the sentiment and all was finished with this one layer card.

I'll probably not be around for a week or so. My son is visiting and his wife and child, along with the other two grandchildren will be here starting this weekend. So, I'll be a busy bee for a while. 

I did put up my two Christmas trees today and I'm so happy that is finished. What a job!!!

This is gorgeous. I love the simplicity of it and thank you for the hint on using your stylus to apply paint. I never thought of that. I do hope you have fun with your visiting family.

Love this bramble wreath. We looked for Sarasota Stamps last time we were in Fla, and got down where the warehouse once was. I got to know the company when they would do the shows in W.Palm Bch. I'll check Walmart to see if I can find this one! You have made it super special with the extra trims at the top. Am loving the Jingle sentiment too. I nailed that TH die in H/L - with a coupon too! Enjoy your family, and I'm impressed that you've got TWO trees up. The kids will enjoy them so much. TFS & Hugs

MiamiKel said...

Gorgeous, gorgeous! What a fabulous holiday wreath! Yes putting up the tree is always hard work - we are leaving for Cmas this year (First time ever!) and I'm debating whether or not it will be worth putting on up. The kids vote yes, I vote not so sure! LOL!
