I received an order for some Christmas cards and the gal told me to make whatever I wanted. I had colored this wreath from Power Poppy as part of the Daily Marker 30 Day challenge in Sept and so it was the perfect image to use. However, I got stuck on a layout for the card and my brain just shut down, I could not figure out how I wanted to position the circle. I was actually at work when the idea popped into my head to do an embossed panel in the background with a patterned paper strip across the middle. All I had to do was go through my paper stash when I got home to see what paper went nicely with this wreath and the blues I used.
I found this paper from Doodlebug Designs in my stash and I really liked the design of the paper against the wreath, and the blue hues were perfect. After embossing my white background I put a strip of the patterned paper across it and then popped up the circle across it with dimensionals.
I really like how it came out! I made 2 for my customer and I'm going up make up some more for my stash!
