Wreath Card and a Winner!

Thanks everyone for participating in the "What's your favorite Christmas song" giveaway.   I have a few Christmas songs that are favorites.  Silver Bells never fails to remind me of my mother since it was her favorite.  But if she was still alive, I am sure she would enjoy any Christmas song sung by Michael Bublé because I sure do.  But my go to Christmas favorite, which I know I have mentioned here before is, "Breath of Heaven" (Mary's song) by Amy Grant.  Just such a wonderful message.

The winner of today's prized package is:
Heidig
Love your tag and its sooooo easy! My favorite Christmas song is White Christmas.  Happy Holidays! 

I have one more prize package to giveaway - you will find today's question at the end of this post.  The winner will be drawn on Sunday Morning so check back to see if it's you!


Today tutorial is a super easy card using the Christmas Blueprint 2 stamp set.
Start by stamping the image of choice onto Ranger watercolor paper with waterproof Black Archival ink.  Color the leaves with two colors of marker Shabby Shutters and Forest Moss, then blend with a detail water brush.
Color the bow with Festive Berries and Walnut Stain, then blend with the water brush.
Use Pumice Stone/water brush for the drop shadow and arrow details.
Ink the edges of the water color paper with Brushed Corduroy Distress Ink for a subtle aged color.  Use a Tonic Edge Distresser tool to rough up the edges.  The Ranger water color paper is very thick so it makes for a great torn or distress edge.
Add as many layers as you wish to make the card front.  I stitched the water color paper to the red Merriment paper, then glued it to the green cardstock.  That way the stitching is hidden between the layers of paper.
Make a small slice with a X-acto knife in the fold of the green cardstock, so the green ribbon can wrap around the card front.  I used a combination of Forest Moss and Peeled Paint Distress Stain to color the Crinkle Ribbon.
Add a little bit of bling to the wreath to give it some extra shine.
And there you go. 
Super easy card that you still have time to make!

  1. I love your card Paula. The added bling is so cute, great idea. I love this stamp and am tempted to go whip one up. My favourite holiday food...stuffing balls I make every year. Have a wonderful Christmas.

  2. Gorgeous card - thanks for the tutorial! My brother comes in from the west coast for a few weeks every Christmas and brings with him a huge shipment of pacific seafood, so I'd have to say my favorite holiday food has become crabs, salmon, and halibut. Thanks for the giveaway!

  3. My favorite holiday food is a loaf of Date Nut bread - made from a recipe at least 3 or 4 generations old - and handed down. My son just got married so now I need to give the recipe to him and carry on the tradition.....

  4. Love the card! Right now I need those quick and easy - yet beautiful - ideas! Favorite food is a tough one to narrow down. I love all of the special cookies we make only at Christmas. But I'd have to say that our Christmas day lasagna is my favorite, mostly because the kids have taken part in preparing it in some way ever since they were tiny. Now they practically make it all by themselves! I've got pictures of the process from every year, and it makes for great memories.

  6. What a beautiful card! I've been looking for some quick and easy last minute card ideas, and this one is perfect. My favorite holiday food is a cornbread stuffing casserole that I make every year. I also love cinnamon rolls for Christmas breakfast.

  8. Thanks for sharing the how-tos of your festive card! My favorite thing this time of year I guess what you'd call fresh cranberry relish. Take a bag of cranberries and mince them up in the food processor, then add about a half cup or so of chopped pecans, and at least 2 big oranges cut up in pieces. (I cut off all the peeling stuff and put the orange segments in the cranberry-pecan mixture--a little time consuming but worth it!) Then add abt half cup of sugar (or more if too tart). Refrigerate this awhile--yum!

  9. Paula my favorite accessory and I think one of your signiatures for most all your work are the rayon ribbon bows and the touch of sewing you add to your pieces. They are my favs.

    I do have a favorite holiday "food" and I'm not going to make it because I'll gain more weight if I do...it's a chocolate peanut drop candy that is sweet and salty and SOOOO addicting and way too easy to make..mix one package chocolate chips, one package butterscotch chips, melt over double boiler, add a can of spanish peanuts and drop onto wax paper!

  29. Love your card. The shading really makes the image pop! I love my father-in-laws cinnamon rolls. I love waking up Christmas morning and smelling them. We all sit together around the table and read the Christmas story while we eat homemade cinnamon rolls. So, because of what goes along with them, cinnamon rolls are my favorite holiday food!

  30. what i beautiful card. You always inspire me! my favourite christmas food is Turkey ... love turkey!!!

    ReplyDelete
  31. As always Paula I am so inspired by your work, simple or intricate, your projects are always the ones I want to copy. My favorite food at Christmas is, of course, all of them, not really. Actually my husband's contribution to the holiday goodies is his Chex party mix to which he adds popcorn, cheese crackers, honey nut cheerios and the rest of the good stuff. He usually makes four or five triple batches and we eat it every night. My youngest son is on a mission for my church in South Africa and the one thing he wanted me to send was Dad's chex mix, the most expensive chex mix to date, $111.00 for shipping, but so worth it if he gets it. Sorry to be so long winded.

  32. Great job with the wreath. My favorite holiday food is cut out cookies! What is Christmas without these cookies? I think they are Santa's favorite too!

  34. Love the card-especially the stitched edge detail around the wreath. Your instructions make everything so easy to do! My favorite holiday food would have to be Sees Candies Cinnamon lollypops.

    LOVE the wreath and your special touch of the dimensions...keeping it Real...brilliant!

  46. I love the card. I don't have a blueprint stamp in my collection yet, but I think I might look for the wreath stamp! My grandmother used to make Lefsa, a Norwegian treat that is generally considered a Christmas dessert. It's basically a crepe made from potatoes, then you butter one side, sprinkle sugar, and fold it several times. It's heavenly stuff!

  69. Oh the holiday foods I love. It used to be the family tradition of baked ham and potatoes au gratin, but now we always have a huge prime rib. But the food that's the standby is "Grandmother's Beans" a pickled navy bean salad....wonderful. My Mother used to give people the recipe, but leave out a ingredient. Very funny... only the worthy, in her eyes, would get the right recipe. Happy Holidays everyone.

  100. Like this blueprints wreath card, Paula! I just got out my holiday blueprint minis to make some tags today. I picked up a couple tips from your tutorial that I will apply. Thank you. My favorite holiday time food has changed through the years. I guess if I had to pick just one right now, it would be my Mother's version of my G'ma's Houska. It is a buttery, lightly sweetened yeast bread made with butter, ground cashews, a pinch of cardamon and raisins. It bakes crusty on the outside and tender and moist on the inside. It is quite delicious. :)

  113. My favorite Christmas "food" is spritz cookies. I loved making them when I was a kid, using my mom's old cookie press. My mom is gone now, but I still have her cookie press and re-live happy memories of her each time I use it. Those cookies taste so good with hot chocolate or a cup of tea!

    Your projects are always so inspirational. Thank you for sharing all your ideas and talents.

    ReplyDelete
  118. The holiday dish I look forward to is pasteles, a traditional Spanish meal. OMG! I buy about three dozen twice a year from a Puerto Rican friend who makes some of the best I have ever tasted. It is a wrapped dish that is boiled in special paper tied with twine. When placed a a dish ready to eat, it's like unwrapping a fine Christmas present that you know took a great deal of time to prepare and made with love.
    Thank you Paula for sharing a great holiday card . Have a very wonderful Christmas with your family and friends!
