After playing a previous Twofer challenge and being named a winner, I'm proud and delighted to be guest designing for the Twofer #11 challenge this month, and the keyword is "wreath." You are to make 2 different cards with 2 different designs while using the same stamps, dies, or stencils to create your interpretation of a wreath.
I've made a Christmas card and a get-well card.
My immediate reaction was to start by making a Christmas card. I started with some traditional colors of red and green and added a piece of SU! woodgrain dsp for the background. The wreath was created with a Poppy Shasta Twigs die and dotted with red liquid pearls for berries. I added a double twine bow, and found the Kaisercraft die-cut sentiment in my doo-dad box - already layered with neutral and red colors and ready to be used.
For this get-well card, I made another wreath from kraft card stock with the Shasta twig die. I used autumn colors of very vanilla, early espresso, and pumpkin pie. The card base is kraft, while the embossed vanilla background was done with a Darice "Fall Leaf Background" embossing folder. The horizontal panel is a snippet of dsp that's printed with colorful autumn leaves, and I added a stitched die-cut banner (Li'l Inker) with a Sweet'n Sassy stamps sentiment. Next I added a stamped and fussy-cut SNSS flower that was enhanced with Copics to add a little depth to the color. The flower center was dotted with gold Stickles, and I also dotted the branches of the wreath with stickles for some subtle sparkle. The espresso panel was cut with a MFT fishtail banner die and the 3 tiny leaves were done with an EK border punch I've had for years.
