Shine wreath with greetings

Hi, Vladka here!

I have another CAS Christmas card for you. So, let's take closer look to how I created it.


White cardstock for the card base: 5 x  inches (cut 5 x 10 inches, fold in half)
Additional piece of white and kraft cardstock and some white and red cardstock for die cuts

Other Supplies:

CottageCutz Dies: Listed Below
Distress Ink:  Aged Mahogany, Peeled Paint, Forest Moss
Other: perfect Pearls, Scissors, Paper trimmer, Sizzix machine, Scor-buddy, Water, spray bottle, red paint

1. First use the biggest Cross-Stitched Square die and cut the square out of white and kraft cardstock. In spray bottle, mixed also water with Perfect Pearls. Spray it on both squares (and also on card base). This will give some shine to the finished card.

2. Cut the Holiday Wreath out of white cardstock and color it with green distress ink. After that spray some previous prepared mixture on it and let it dry:

3. Apply some red paint on berries and give it a side to let it dry.

4. Cut also greeting out of red cardstock. Distress the edges with Aged Mahogany distress ink and also spray it with mixture of perfect pearls and water. Let it dry.

Now put all pieces together as shown on my finished card. Quick and easy :) It is hard to see all the shine here on the photo but in real live is beautiful.

I hope you like it. Have fun creating. And don't forget, sixth CottageCutz challenge is waiting for you. This time theme is HOLIDAY. You can linked your project here. And please, use only Scrapping Cottage dies.
