You can see the 3D wreath better on this close up photo.
So let's get started. Let me show you some of the steps on how I created this card of mine.
First off I covered my embossing plate with Prima's chalk ink in Dry Sand color.
Next I embossed my white card stock with the embossing folder and when I took it out of the folder, this gorgeous piece is what I ended up with. So love this look.
Next I die cut all my wreath pieces. Once again I used white card stock, as I wanted to add my own colors to it.
Next I pulled out my bright yellow green shade Pan Pastel and using my foam applicator I colored in my pieces.
Once I colored them all in, I took some foam dots and started putting my layered wreath together and added more green to it for dimension. This is a pretty good picture of what it looked like when I was done with it.
Than I had to create the label for my sentiment, which again I die cut using white card stock and first stamped my sentiment on the label and added Pan Pastel for coloring it. I was going to use the ribbon die and colored that, too, but later I decided to use a real ribbon instead, but you can see what it looked like colored in.
As final touches, I added my seam binding ribbon bow and candy dots to my wreath and once again, here is what my finished card looks like. I love that the embossed wreath is poking out underneath the built wreath and that it looks almost snow covered the way the ink it's magic with the embossing folder.
