Creative Inking Blog Hop — A Quite Curvy Christmas Wreath

Hello stampers and crafty friends!  It's that time of year where we start planning for the biggest holiday of the year...Christmas!  Our amazing Creative Inking designers have a bundle of inspirational projects themed as "Christmas Cards".  You may be starting from here at my blog, Lori Mueller - Stampin' Dreams, or you may have come here from the very talented Susan Campfields' blog. Please be sure to click the 'Next' button (found below) to move along the Creative Inking blog hop to see all the beautiful projects.


I've been aching to get my Curvy Christmas stamps inky and the bow branch image was the top of my list to use. 

In the back of my head, I remembered a card I designed for a past stamp class using an evergreen-type image.  So, I used that as my inspiration for today's card share.  I love to create non-traditional sized cards, and it's been a while since I've shown off a square card.  This one is 4-1/4" square and will fit perfectly into Stampin' Up!'s A2 sized envelopes.  The colors of Sahara Sand, Cherry Cobbler, and Shaded Spruce originate from the Classic Christmas Designer Series paper pack (also part of the Curvy Celebrations Suite).
I used my trusty Stamparatus to help create the perfectly aligned Shaded Spruce wreath.  Once you get the rotation pattern set, this will be a cinch to mass produce.  The Cherry Cobbler sprig die cuts were made with a die from the Curvy Dies.  This layout was calling for a dainty, yet rustic accessory, so I took some Linen Thread and unwound the fibers before tucking behind the Champagne Foil Layering Scallop Circle die cut.

The sentiment was inked with Cherry Cobbler, stamped onto a strip of Whisper White and hand cut to form the wavy feature of the sentiment.  There needed to be some berries or 'ornaments' adorning the wreath, so I colored our Basic Pearls using the Dark Cherry Cobbler Stampin' Blends and then scattered them throughout.  Simply lovely!

Want to know how this card came together?  Here's my Facebook Live demonstration I did today sharing tips and tricks on how it all went together.
