Happy Holidays!

Written by Kelly Latevola. Posted in Eye Candy (Projects)

Hello Crafters!

I know it’s a bit early for Christmas cards but I love the new WPlus9 Holiday Boughs set so much I couldn’t wait to use it 🙂



I decided to use the branches to stamp out a wreath. I used a circle die to lightly draw a circle on my watercolor paper as a guide.  Distress Ink Markers are perfect to scribble onto stamps.  I used Crushed Olive, Peeled Paint, and Forest Moss for my branches, and then spritzed them lightly with water in a Mini Mister after stamping.


Once that was done I used Brushed Corduroy and Ground Espresso to add some pinecones in. I heat set the whole peace before stamping the large sentiment in Versamark. I used a warm brown to heat set the sentiment before adding in a white highlight with my gel pen. Lastly I added a bit of shading inside my wreath using Copic Markers in W1 and W3.

The watercolor piece was mounted on some dark maroon cardstock to complete the card. I just love how rustic this feels! It’s a bit outside of my norm but I’m super happy with it 🙂

Thank you so much for joining me!

    It’s a beautiful card. The wreath looks like it’s watercolored.

    This is so beautiful, I love the watercolor look of the wreath, and the big, bold sentiment! The addition of the white pen on the sentiment looks amazing, really makes it pop!
