Pocket Wreath

This is the card we made last night at our monthly Stamp-a-Stack gathering. The center is masked with a 1 3/8" circle punched from a post-it note. The wreath is created by sponging Garden Green ink around the edges of the circle, then stamping vine and berry images from Pocket Silhouettes before lifting the post-it circle. The colors we used are Garden Green, So Saffron and Real Red. The "merry christmas" image is from Loads of Love.

As we were stamping our cards, my Mom came suggested that the wreath needed a background of some sort. She came up with the idea of the faux wood technique that I had demonstrated to the group in the past. So, this is essentially the same card, but with the addition of a faux wood background.
