Hello and welcome. This week we are making \”Occasion\” cards at The Watercooler Wednesday Challenge which means holiday cards to birthday cards to sympathy cards…the list is vast. Dawn is our talented hostess.
I chose to make some thank you cards to use during the holiday season. I wanted bright, festive and fun so I opted to go with my Zig markers.
I stamped, colored and die-cut my wreath. My wreath has five Christmas colors. I wanted a clean and simple look but with a bit of interest on the background so I dry embossed an A2 panel. I liked that the planks look snow covered when embossed on white paper. I also wanted a small sentiment that would fit inside the wreath and within the boundaries of the plank so I looked through my sentiments and found this cute little one.
I like the top folding cards I see online but I had never made one until this card. I do think it adds a fun little twist to cards. While I was at it, I made a batch of top folding cards so I will be making more in the future.
