My project today was made using the new Gingham Texture stamp paired with the Twig Wreath, Fir Sprigs and candy canes from the Bare Christmas Tree set.   

Gingham Texture

The wreath made with evergreen, candy canes and red multi loop bow with the gingham background is the perfect combination for an old-fashioned Christmas card. I started by attaching the gingham stamp to the mega mount, applied red ink and stamped on white cardstock. I layered it with red and white cardstock and attached to the card base with mounting tape.

I cut the wreath using kraft cardstock and applied brown ink to it using a Color Box stylus  and foam tip.  I laid the wreath face down on my molding pad and formed it with the stylus.  I cut several pieces of evergreen and attached to the wreath to create the foliage spray.

I cut several candy canes in white and applied the red stripes with a red marker.  I attached the red bow with glue dots and tucked the canes into the evergreen and attached with glossy accents.

The darker green cardstock made it a little hard to see the candy canes in my other photos so I took a close up so you could see them better.

    Great card.

  2. Picture perfect Christmas card. Love the colors and gingham and the wreath is
    one of my favorite dies. Cute little candy canes, sweet.

  3. Good Morning, Kittie, a Christmas wreath, is always such a glorious decoration Many thoughts of Christmas enter into its beauty, represents many traditions and understanding what Christmas is. something to research if never done for many surprises. I love this wreath, and love the candy canes. The Shepherds staff. Another one worth researching for its meaning. thank you for your wonderful creations, and am looking forward to your Christmas cards coming…..have a good day. God Bless…LOL

  4. Pretty wreath card! I love the dimension, and it looks fabulous on the Gingham Texture background! Great new stamp!

  5. Beautiful card Kittie! The gingham background is amazing. The wreath looks fantastic against the gingham. My favourite element is the candy canes, they look very realistic. Thank you for sharing this amazing card today.

  6. Lovely card! The tiny candy canes are the perfect touch with the red gingham background. I really like that gingham stamp!

  7. Another winning card. You are such a great artist. I love your wreaths, I have tried making them but don’t quit have the knack yet. You inspire me.

  8. Nobody does die cuts with so much dimension and style like you! I love the sweet little wreath over the gingham strip and the dainty foliage and tiny little candy canes. The bow is the perfect finishing touch.
    I was wondering though, how you attached the wreath to the background? It’s so open and with the shaping there wouldn’t be many places to adhere it.
    Thank you so much for sharing all your lovely work. This has been such a great blog hop week. I am going to hate for it to come to an end tomorrow!

  9. Kittie, this is so pretty…. I love the wreath and the gingham background… very homey feeling…. and I can’t believe the amount of work you put into making the candy canes…. really amazing… Again, I loved your idea… thank you for sharing your sensational creativity

  10. Emily, I’m sorry I didn’t say in my post how I attached the wreath. I attached three large glue dots to the back of the wreath where the foliage is. That held the wreath in place and allowed the grapevine part of the wreath be free from any attachment. I hope that made sense! 🙂

  11. Darling card. Your work with those little dies is always so amazing. I love the little candy canes & the gingham background stamp. Thanks so much.

  12. A gorgeous Christmas card, Kittie!
    Beautiful, traditional colors and everything fits so well together.
    Kittie, you inspire me to try making such a Christmas card, Thank you!
    Hugs, Eva.

  13. This looks REAL! Seeing this, a person would swear that the gingham was real. Another really beautiful card!

  16. I love the twig wreath as a die. I love dies, and I like the evergreen die as well. Your card is highly inspirational and you’ve done a great job.
