CASology #277 and AAA #104

I can't believe it's December already.  Where did November go?  Where did the year go?  Christmas is fast approaching and although I have enough cards for my mailing list I can't stop being inspired to make more.  Today's card is for CASology whose code word is 'Round' and AAA Cards who just asks for 'Christmas'.

Wreaths are round so I cut this one from CP/SOA from watercolor paper and gave it a touch of Distress Inks with a little Inktense pencil shading.  I cut another layer from cardstock but it wasn't enough so a final layer was cut from coaster paper.  I wanted it to look like it was hanging from a door so I embossed SSS stitched rectangles and squares into my white cs.  Not that doors have stitches 😀 but I don't have any plain rectangles. It's barely visible here but IRL looks perfect.  Joy was cut from gold shimmer paper.

I hear label pasting calling my name so I'm off to get the cards signed and stuffed.  Once they're out of the way I have a few challenges that have inspired me.  I may just color while watching a Christmas movie tonight.

  4. Your wreath is a great image, Bobby, and I love how you colored it and put the joy in the middle! And how you "made" a doorway to hang it on is just plain genius!! Thank you for playing at CASology!! Hugs, Darnell

  9. I'd be thrilled to have a 'real' size version of your wreath hanging on the door of my new house - and with 'joy' in the center, too! LOVE this!
