For this card, I used our new All Year Long stamp set, and our exclusive Birthday Bling sequin mix - made by Pretty Pink Posh, but sold in our shop, to create this fun holiday card. You could send it to someone just to say 'hello' in December, or use as your Christmas card.
I used the little leafy sprig in All Year Long to create the wreath. Because photopolymer is flexible, I bent the sprig before putting it on the acrylic block so that it would create the circle shape for the wreath. I stamped it in a dark green first (the full circle), then stamped again in two more colors of coordinating green ink to give the wreath dimension.
Next I stamped "hello december" in black Versafine ink and then the smallest circle image from All Year Long in red ink on to the wreath as little berries. I tied a satin red ribbon for the bow at the top. The card just wasn't quite finished in my mind, so I added the green sequins from our Birthday Bling sequin mix on to the wreath. It gave it just the right amount of texture and shine!
This was pretty quick & easy to make. It could be a fast one to create multiples of if you had many people on your list to send them to! If you hadn't thought to use our new All Year Long stamp set for cards, I hope this has changed your mind!
