FS662 - Joyful Wreath
Congratulations to this week's Splitcoaststampers' Featured Stamper, Diana Gibson.
I chose this card as my inspiration:
I focused on Diana's:
-die cut sentiment in the centre
-my diecuts are all inlaid
I started by creating a plaid panel. (here's a video with tips and tricks for easily creating plaid backgrounds for your cards).
I cut the new MFT Stamps Joyful Wreath from the centre of the panel, and kept the rest for my mat layer.
I inlaid the wreath into a white panel of cardstock, and I inlaid a black 'Joy' into the centre. (here's a video with tips and tricks for easy inlaid die cuts).
I coloured some cardstock and then cut the berries, I glued them around the wreath and then shaded each one for some dimension. I also added tiny white dots with a gel pen for 'shine'.
Then I coated the Joy and the berries with some Stardust Stickles for sparkle.
