and so it begins… – First Posted: Saturday, November 13, 2010

Ok, Ok, I’m giving in and starting my Christmas projects today! I have seen some wonderful creations going up on others blogs for a while now and couldn’t resist any longer, I absolutely love Christmas and the more glittery the better as far as I am concerned. I felt that some Digital Stamps were way overdue so I have a Holly Wreath to start you off with. I also have a matching sentiment frame to border the wreath if you fancy although it can be used on any Christmas-sy project and is dead simple to cut out with your Nesties or any other circle cutter system. I hope you like them.

I sized both images in Word ensuring that the sentiment frame would be large enough to fit around the holly wreath image when I cut it out with my circle Nestabilities. I printed my image twice to add dimension by layering the bow, I coloured them with markers and pencils and added some glossy accents to the bow and popped up with 3D foam pads. I cut a circle mat in red card and to add a little sparkle I swiped a versamark pad over all of the edges and embossed with Stempendous Crystal embossing powder for a great glittery touch, I can’t speak highly enough of their embossing powders, I’ve only tried them recently but I love them! Ok, I finished the card by using a scalloped circle Nestability to create the card base and popped on a few strategically placed sticky backed gems.
