AWH HOC: Final Week!

Hi!

Can you believe that it's the final week of The Heart Of Christmas? I can't! That would be like admitting that it's nearly Christmas!


I'ave had a great time making cards for these blog shares each week - it's been a good way of making sure I've made a decent start on my stash of Christmas cards.

This week I've created a very Australian bush look wreath - do you agree that it looks like a wreath made of gum leaves? You wouldn't guess that the stamp is actually meant to be a peacock tail! The stamp is from a new set called Beautiful Peacock, and it's one of the upcoming Sale-A-Bration sets.

I lightly drew a circle on some Very Vanilla yardstick by tracing around the bottom of an old Embossing Paste pot. I then stamped the image 5 times around the circle in Garden Green ink, and then a further 5 times in Lemon Lime Twist ink. I offset them, so that it made a smoother circle shape. If you look closely at the separate image, you can see that it's a bit of a scallopy looking circle in just one colour, so you definitely need the two colours to smooth it out.

I followed the same process for the inside, except for only making a half-wreath. You can see on both that I've stamped some Cherry Cobbler 'berries' using another stamp from the Beautiful Peacock set.

As usual, you can find links for the rest of the group over on Claire's blog. I've loved checking out everyone's cards each week - they are so inspirational.

Bye for now,

Tina
