{Spotlight Project} Cornelia Creates A Quick One Layer Christmas Card

Hi! It's Cornelia and I'm playing with stamps in the Joyful set in this spotlight post. I made this simple and quick one layer card that would be easy to mass-produce. It's great if you have a lot of Christmas cards to make. And you know Christmas is not too far off. Let's get started!

I stamped the wreath and sponged it, deliberately going outside the stamp.

I added the sentiment and colored the berries with red marker.

I then masked the sides and sponged again with a slightly lighter green ink. I decided that the berries were not red enough so I added red and gold Stickles to them. 

I added a small bow to finish it off. 

Here's a straight on view, but you can't see the Stickles that well.

Happy Stamping!
