I love Very Vanilla and Gold as Christmas colors. So when I saw the sketch challenge on SCS yesterday, and I realized that this wreath was just the right size for the main layer, I pulled out the gilding. You can see the sketch here.
First I stamped the wreath in VersaMark and embossed it in gold. We had a front door once that had a rounded top. I loved that door! So I rounded the top two corners to kind of resemble that door.
All that was left was to cut up some embossed Very Vanilla and mount the pieces on Brushed Gold.
I opted for a little pop of color with the red ribbon and the sentiment stamped in Real Red and punched out.
I keep thinking I should have done something to the actual card base. It looks a little bare to me. Too late now though. Let me know what you think.
