1- Use an embossing buddy to remove the static from the 4" x 4" cardstock before stamping your image.
2- With white craft ink stamp the wreath image in the center of your cardstock.
3- Add white embossing powder over the whole image. Tap off the excess.
4- Heat with a heat tool, until the embossing powder melts and is shinny.
5- Use a sponge dauber and Real Red ink and randomly add color around the wreath. You can make them darker by adding more color or keep them light. Your choice.
6- Use a second sponge dauber with Garden Green ink and add color to the rest of the wreath. Make sure to get in between and around all the red. You wan to make sure the whole wreath is showing and has color.
7- Use a tissue or paper towel and remove any extra ink that is sitting on top of the embossed image.
Here is a close up.
8- Use the wreath die cut and a big shot to cut out the wreath
So beautiful!
9- Stamp on the Crumb Cake cardstock the birch stamp in Early Espresso ink.
10- Rotate the stamp 180 and ink and stamp again to give your paper more wood grain texture
11- Use a sponge or sponge dauber and distress the cardstock. Add color in between the wood grain. Add some light and some dark areas.

12- On the card base stamp the Buffalo Check stamp in Garden Green.
13- Flag the ends of the whisper white carstock strip and stamp your greeting in Garden Green ink.
14- Add the wood grain paper to the center of your card base.
15- Add the vellum cardstock on top. Use minimal adhesive in the corners and in the middle. Try to hid it behind the wreath or greeting so you don't see it.
16- Add the wreath to the center of the card with dimensionals.
17- Place the strip of Real Red behind the greeting. Add some wrapped silver metallic thread and dimensionals.
18- Place it in along the bottom of the wreath.

All done!
