Hello & Welcome

A little different Christmas card today

I used the same sentiment for the card front and inside for the verse.  The paper is from a 6x6" Christmas Paper Pad I've had for numerous years.  I stamped the verse using an Archival Ink Pad in 'Coffee'

I started with a 7" square, white card base and dusted most of the card with my anti-static container.  Using one of my 'old' leaf stamps I coloured part of it with a Spectrum Aqua pen in 'Evergreen' then the remainder in 'Sunset'.  I proceeded to do this until I had created a circle for the wreath  I then inked a smaller leaf stamp with 'Bud Green' and stamped around the wreath again filling in any gaps.  Once all the stamping was completed I used a mid purple coloured pencil and added a little extra colour to some of the leaves

A Clarity Stamp was used for the sentiment.  I stamped and embossed this with a Perfect Medium Clear Embossing Ink Pad, sprinkled 'Metallic Copper' embossing powder over it, removed the excess and heat set it with my heat gun

 I used a ProMARKER Pen in 'Berry Red to add small red dots/berries on both the inside and outside of the wreath then decided I would do a little 'splatter' over the whole card and used a Pearlescent Liquid Acrylic Paint in 'Volcano Red'
I also added a little glitter to parts of a few leaves only but the camera isn't picking that up very well
