Make It Monday #289

Hello and Welcome to the Weekend!

This week on Papertrey Ink's Make It Monday video tutorial, Lizzie challenged us to make a wreath from small images.  It's rare I play along with these weekly challenges because my crafty time is mostly relegated to weekends and holidays only. And like a nifflers attraction to all things shiny, my attention turns to more recent challenges and projects by the time I'm able to get crafty. (Harry Potter fans will understand the reference to nifflers­čśü).

After watching the video on Monday, the idea of wreaths kept playing in my mind so there was a pretty good chance I would be participating in this weeks challenge. Instead of using small floral images, I was thinking about making a wreath made of greenery in a square shape. Something like this:

And during my daily (OK, hourly) scrolls through Instagram, there it was. A beautiful holiday wreath by Dana Kirby. Everything about her card is perfection and I will be casing it at a later date. Which brings me to the card below.

Multiple stamp sets were used to find snowflakes that were an appropriate size for the wreath. I used Fab Flakes, Quilted: Winter and Snowflake Sparkle and ink colors Spring Rain, Blueberry Sky, Lilac Grace, Plum Pudding, Winter Wisteria, Royal Velvet and Dark Indigo. The sentiment from Christmas Cheer is stamped in Royal Velvet. A little strip of Plum Pudding gingham on the side and everything attached to a Royal Velvet card base.

I will definitely be making more wreaths using small stamps in the future.  Thanks for stopping by and have a great weekend!
