Wondrous Wreath using Neutral Colors and Oh, What Fun!

My first blog post in months, but had a very active summer and fall with three weddings!  Hoping to get back to blogging more frequently.

Getting ready for Craft Fairs and Christmas, I thought I would share a card using the Wondrous Wreath and Oh, What Fun stamp sets.  I was inspired by Inky Fingers to create this card using neutral colors and gold embossing powder.  Here are the supplies and instructions to make this card.

Tell me what you think!  I am always happy to hear from my followers.

Adhere this piece to the Basic Black, then adhere these two to the card base leaving a ¼” on left and right side.

Using Wondrous Wreath stamp set, stamp the sentiment on the inside piece of Very Vanilla.  Adhere to inside of card base.

LINE UP THE ARROW ON THE STAMP SET IN THE SAME DIRECTION EACH TIME
Using the wreath with the most leaves, stamp in Sahara Sand on the Very Vanilla scrap.
Use the embossing buddy and wipe over your Very Vanilla Scrap and stamp the next set of leaves with Versamark.  Heat set using Gold Embossing powder.  Stamp the bow with Versamark and heat set in gold.

Using Tip Taupe Taupe, stamp the berries.

Using the Wonderful Wreath Framelits, cut out your wreath and bow using the Big Shot.

Add dimensionals on backside of wreath and center at top.  Attach your bow with one glue dot.

Using sentiment from Oh, What Fun, stamp in Tip Top Taupe.  Punch out with Washi Label punch.
Add two dimensionals to the backside of the label.  Peel off backside of dimensionals and add Metallic gold thread to the back, then attach to your card.
