First I used the Holiday Wreath Stencils to ink on Distress Inks with my detail blender brushes. I used the new Lumberjack Plaid Distress ink and Aged Mahogany on the flowers--these pair beautifully together! For the berries I used Festive Berries, the leaves are Rustic Wilderness and Mowed Lawn. I used the same colors for the individual flower, leaves, and berries stencil.
When the stencils aren't too detailed, I do my stenciling first so I don't have to worry about any ink dulling stamped or embossed lines. Honey Bee's stencils are so easy to line with because of the etched lines in them. When the inks were dry, I lined up the coordinating Holiday Wreath stamp and heat embossed it with gold embossing powder. Don't forget to use your anti-static tool first!
Next I used the coordinating dies to cut all the pieces out. Then I stamped the sentiment from the Holiday Wreath set onto embossable window plastic and heat set it with gold embossing powder. I used double sided adhesive to add it to the back of the wreath panel. Then I added foam tape to the back of the panel and poured in some coordinating sequins from my stash. I like to add another piece of acetate to the back to close the shaker window. This makes it much easier to line it up with my card base.
After I adhered the shaker panel to the A2 card base with Bee Creative glue, I used glue and foam dots to add on the additional flowers, leaves, and berries!
I really do enjoy having coordinating stencils to color the stamped images! I think this Holiday Wreath would be so pretty in other colors and would definitely be just as beautiful as a flat non-shaker card! Thank you so much for stopping by today!
