Time Out Challenge

Uniko is sponsoring the challenge at Time Out this fortnight and so naturally the DT are joining in with sample cards.

Grab Our Badge!

The theme is CHRISTMAS with an optional twist of using pink and/or purple. Right up my street then!

I started by die cutting a circle and then cutting again with a smaller die to get my wreath shape. I then temporarily adhered it to a card base before stamping. I started with the pink poinsettias and purple snowflakes and then added my ferns and leaves, some of them coming off both edges.

I lifted the wreath a little onto pads and stamped both the bow and sentiment before attaching it - I used the off the edge ferns to help place them.

Stamps: Uniko, Background Builders Winter Additions, Background Builders Vines, sentiment from Pure Florals Poinsettia, bow from Balloon Bash
Inks: SU, pear pizzazz, old olive, mossy meadow, regal rose, wisteria wonder
Dies: Spellbinders, standard circles small
