Medallion Christmas Wreath

Here's a card I made using the Medallion Background Stamp for my Christmas Wreath. This is such a universal stamp, I love it. The color combo is Always Artichoke, Cherry Cobbler and Natural Ivory.

First, I stamped the medallion in Always Artichoke Classics Ink. The inside of the wreath is a stamp from the "Merry & Type" stamp set, stamped in Cherry Cobbler and punched out using the 2-3/8" Scallop Circle Punch. I used the Circle Punch from the Itty Bitty Shapes Pack to make the berries in Cherry Cobbler. I sprayed my card pieces with the homemade shimmer mist (with Champagne Mist Shimmer Paint) and let dry before I attached them. The berries I covered with Dazzling Details from the holiday mini catalog, so they would stand out. Lastly I used an Antique Brad to attach the bow to the wreath…I mean card. :o)

Let me know what you think.
