Christmas Wreath and a Sale! {Purple Onion Designs}

The annual Purple Onion Designs Holiday sale is underway. All stamps are 25% off until December 7!

Today's card is a clean and simple one using some older stamps. I started out by smearing Versamark ink in a haphazard manner onto the Merry Background stamp. After stamping it onto white linen cardstock, I heat embossed it with silver pearl for a tone on tone look and then cut out with a stitched rectangle die. I really wanted more "blank" spots but I think I got a little carried away with the Versamark. Next time I will try masking off before inking. I then stamped the Boxwood Wreath onto Neenah cardstock and cut out with a stitched circle die, coloring with Copic markers. I matted both pieces with pure poppy cardstock. After adding a diagonal strip of pure poppy cardstock on the cardbase the image panel was attached to the embossed background with a layer of craft foam.
