Winter Wreath


I think that the Winter Wreath stamp set from Avery Elle is my favorite new set released for this holiday season.  I find myself reaching for it time and time again!  Today's card is a really CAS card, perfect for mass producing.  I added some subtle distressing and a twine bow for a bit of a rustic look.

Did I tell you that I finished my cards for this year?  All 60 done on October 17th, but I just keep making them anyway.  I think I'll be giving some away as gifts this year!

This card was inspired by this weeks Festive Friday Challenge...
