Happy Holidays Wreath

(Card inspired by this one by Leigh Penner)

I used 3 different stamp sets on this rustic card; Remarkable Wreath for the wreath, Holiday Tags for the sentiment, and A Holiday for the holly.

I also used some retired embossing powders on my wreath; Cranberry and Cocoa.
I found those to be more solid than using pigment ink onto the patterned paper.

But on the green bow, I used Topiary pigment ink stamped onto white cardstock, and fussy-cut it out with micro-tip scissors.

I also used Topiary and Cranberry pigment inks for the holly and berries.

Happy creating!  :)

Supplies used (all CTMH unless otherwise noted):
Paper:  Dakota B&T - retired; Colonial White, Cocoa, Cranberry CS
Stamps:  Remarkable Wreath, Holiday Tags, A Holiday
Inks:  Versamark, Cranberry Pigment, Topiary Pigment
Embellishment:  Red Sparkle
Other:  Double-ended Banner Die (PTI), Micro-tip scissors, Cranberry, White, and Cocoa Embossing Powders - retired, 3D Foam Tape, 1/4" circle punch (EK)

Just gorgeous, Vicki! I still have plenty of this Dakota paper left over, so I may have to case this one!

Aha! Embossing powder! I really love what you did with this one! One of my all-time favorite stamps. Girl, that is some serious fussy-cutting! ;)
