Peaceful Wreath & Wondrous Wreath Wednesday!

Today I want to share with you two cards I made using a different color combo for Christmas colors.  I can't say they're "non-traditional" because they're red and green in a sense, but these colors are not colors I would think of right away to use for Christmas.  Sometimes I'm glad I have a messy craft desk.  These 3 inks were sitting with a few others and I was immediately inspired!


I also wanted to highlight two stamp sets (one from the annual catalog and one from the holiday catalog) that feature the Wonderful Wreath Framelits.  I love the new coordinating stamp set out of the new holiday catalog.  Maybe because it's a Holly wreath? :)


I wanted to keep things simple so the wreath was the focal point, but I also wanted to ink up the white layer.  I took the "Peace" stamp from the sentiment and stamped the word in different shades of Mint Macaron.  Love the look!


The other wreath set is from the annual catalog.  It was in last year's holiday catalog and I'm so glad it carried over!



I hope you enjoyed this different color combo!  Which wreath card do you like better? Leave a comment and let me know - I'd love to hear from you!

Have a wonderful Wednesday!
-Holly

  1. I like them both but, for Christmas, I think I like the traditional wreath from last year. The other one is so gorgeous though!

  2. They are both wonderful! It is hard to make a decision. The Wonderful Christmas wins for me.

  4. Both of your cards are beautiful but my vote is for Peaceful Wreath. Could be I associate holly with Christmas why I am not sure. Being a California native we had poinsettias growing in the yard. Live the nontraditional color choice too.

    1. Holly is certainly a Christmas detail - probably why I was a December baby named Holly Joy! Poinsettias in your yard?? How neat! Thanks for the nice comment Rosemarie!
