I’m slowly working my way through my stash of Power Poppy clear stamp sets and since most of them are holiday themed, this seemed like the perfect time of year to start getting some cards ready for the season. This card features the smaller wreath from the Wreaths Plain and Fancy stamp set (I featured the larger wreath a few days ago). Much simpler to color – only requires a few shades of green and red. I colored the ribbon in shades of yellow to make it stand out and added a little pointillism for a simple, but effective background.
The Peace sentiment is included in the stamps set. I paired the image with papers from the Vintage Christmas Collection from Authentique.

Now that I’ve gotten through all of that let’s get to today’s card! I selected the new Succulent Wreath and Baubles stamp set and paired it with a sentiment from the Acorn Ornaments stamp set. I’ve been coloring a LOT of holiday cards recently and I gravitated towards this image because it allows me to pick non-traditional Christmas colors. I think that the jewel tones really set this card off.
