Holiday Wreath Card ~ Red Rubber Designs DT

     Hello! I'm back with the Christmas version of the Thanksgiving Card that I made last month using burlap, adhered again with some hand-stitching, featuring some Unmounted Christmas Rubber Stamps from Red Rubber Designs

     The background was smooshed with Lindy's Sprays (Cathedral Pines Green and Ponderosa Pines Olive). Then I embossed the Holly Swirls with Emerald Creek (Charred Gold) Embossing Powder, also added to the edges. The same Lindy's sprays were used to deepen the color of the leaves, and Distress Spray Stain (Candied Apple) to paint the berries.

     The edges of the red card base were embossed with Emerald Creek (Chinese New Year) EP, also used for the sentiment with the Vintage Santa Stamp. The next layer was embossed onto cream cardstock using Emerald Creek (Topiary Green) EP.

     I also used Emerald Creek (Topiary Green) EP to emboss the Holiday Wreath and holly sprig using the Glorious Holiday stamp. 

     Since the bow I used on my Thanksgiving Card was made with matte raffia, I used a glossy raffia on this one for some holiday shimmer. 

Thanks for looking!
