Wonderous Wreath!!!

I can't believe I waited this long to get this stamp set!  I guess I wanted to make sure that if I got it, it would stick around and not be discontinued!  I think it was so successful that they're keeping it around since I saw it was in the occasions catty!!!  GET YOUR Wondrous Wreath Photopolymer Stamp Set HERE! YEAH!!

My friend received an order for wedding cards.  The lady's daughter is getting married in the fall and wanted us to create cards for her to send to her daughter every month until the wedding.  This is the last card for her to give to her daughter on her wedding day.  We also made matching envelopes (since my friend insisted...she's got a thing for envelopes!).

The card uses vellum to add a soft touch over the "rustic" wreath.  The wreath was stamped in Pumpkin Pie an accented with Cajun Craze.  The berries are embossed in gold.  To keep the hues muted, we used very vanilla card stock. 

After the wreath was done, we added the vellum.  We used the Island Indigo ink and gold embossing to make them stand out.  I then used the Tangelo Twist Satin Stripe Ribbon across the bottom of the vellum.  This helped camoflauge the bottom of the vellum and bring out the colors from behind it as well.  I just love the detailing on this ribbon as well so I wanted to showcase it.

And lastly to complete the look.  We used the Woodgrain Textured Impressions Embossing Folder with just a little bit of Cajun Craze ink to bring out the wood grain more.  The last detail comes with the Gold Foil Sheets and the lace scallop border.

Once you bring everything together, it becomes a masterpiece :)  I hope you enjoy our creation!
