Wreath on Door Christmas Card for So Suzy Stamps

Today, I've got a quick and easy sparkly Christmas card featuring some of the newest stamps from our holiday release, including the Noel and Wreath stamp that I designed, topped off with that festive bow designed by Olesya!  This project is up on the So Suzy Stamps blog today, but the tutorial can be found right here.




You'll need a few key ingredients to recreate this:

-woodgrain paper
-white cardstock (A2 sized)
-vellum
-white embossing powder
-brown embossing powder
-pink glitter embossing powder
-versamark watermark clear ink
-craft heat tool
-Nuvo Crystal drops pink and white
-Nested Circle dies or circle punch 2"
-foam squares, adhesive runner
-burlap string *optional
-black dye ink pad
-q-tips, sharp tool
-stamp positioner


**Make sure you position your woodgrain cardstock in a corner of your stamp position, so it can be replaced in the same spot for double stamping.

1. Trim your woodgrain cardstock to layer on your A2 sized card.  
2.  Line up your wreath stamp and use your stamp positioner to stamp with Versamark, heat emboss with white embossing powder, tap off excess.




3.  Leave Wreath stamp in same position on positioner.  Make sure your woodgrain has been placed back in the same position.  Re-ink wreath stamp with Versamark and ink your embossed wreath again, over the white embossing.  

4.  Sprinkle pink embossing glitter, tap off excess but DO NOT HEAT YET.  Use q-tip to remove the pink glitter, leaving white underlying white embossing.  This is totally a preference as I wanted to fill with white Nuvo crystal drops.  Heat with craft tool.




5.  Next, we'll move on to the bow.  Stamp with versamark ink and heat emboss with brown (Nuvo Hot Chocolate) embossing powder.  

6.  To glitter the bow,  press versamark ink directly over entire area of embossed bow.  Sprinkle with pink glitter embossing powder.  Use a q-tip to remove the embossing powder from around outer edge of bow and from the brown embossed outline.  Use a sharp tool such as a vinyl weeding tool, to better removed glitter powder from the outline.  Heat with craft tool and fussy cut.




7.  Stamp NOEL with versamark ink and heat emboss with brown embossing powder on vellum.  Fussy cut each letter to pop up later on card.




8.  Use a circle punch or nesting die circles to create a circle window cutout.  Adhere a section of vellum behind the woodgrain paper, covering the circle.

9.  Add Nuvo Crystal drops where the "berry" dots are on wreath.  Add a string embellishement to fill inside wreath if you wish, and draping an extra strand for the letters.  Pop up the bow and letters on thin foam strips or squares.  Adhere woodgrain panel to white A2 cardstock.
