Christmas wreaths

Hello everyone. I'm popping in with a quick post to show you the two wreath cards that I created yesterday, just in the nick of time for the current challenge at Muse: ChristmasVisions.

I was totally inspired by the following elements of our Christmas muse, Chriss:
- black background
- greenery die cut from a watercoloured background (I used DOIs)
- white heat-embossed sentiment (I used the same Right at Home stamp set that Chriss used)

I used the following dies: 
Crazy double running stitch rectangles by CUTplorations
Joy wreath die - Winterhaven collection by Catherine Pooler

Below is the inspiration card that Chriss created:

I'm also playing at:

ABC Christmas - P is for Plain

HLS Christmas - Anything goes

HLS CAS - Die cuts


  1. Two super Christmas cards and a great take on the inspiration. Hope things are OK at your end Marianne.

  3. These cards are fabulous! I love them - everything about them!

  4. Love this! The wreath is so pretty made up like this!

  5. Mooi organisch, met de tinten groengeel en juist op zwarte ipv witte ondergrond maakt het tot een exclusieve chique kaart. Alvast maar een voorraadje van maken? Heel mooi gedaan, Marianne. Ineke☀️

  6. These are magnificent takes on the MUSE, Marianne! I love those wreaths, especially against the black background!! Hugs, Darnell

  7. Love your cards. The black background is fantastic. Thanks for sharing with us at Happy Little Stampers August Christmas Challenge.

  8. Very classy cards and really love the colour on the green. I bet you could mass produce a few in different colours too! xx
