Festive Season OSAT Hop- Cottage Wreaths

 It is time to start on all those Christmas projects you have in your head! 

 This is one of mine!

  I have been wanting to try a sort of floating sampler of sorts as a framed piece of art.  I used this as my 3D project for this month's OSAT Blog Hop.

This month's One Stamp at a Time Blog Hop's theme is Festive Season.  We were all to make a card and a 3D project with a festive holiday feel to them.

 I made a twelve days of Christmas wreath sampler using the Cottage Wreaths Bundle and a beaded edged board I purchased at Hobby Lobby.  I stuck with the color pallet of Evening Evergreen, Soft Succulent, White and gold.  
I used the Deckled Rectangles Dies for my backgrounds and ran a few of them through various embossing folders, some I left plain and some I flicked some Evening Evergreen die on them with my Water Painter brush.  

I used the Country Wreaths Dies that come in the bundle to cut all of the wreaths, extra branches and the bows out.  Several were stamped - the leafy wreath stamps out with some beautiful shading that leaves the leaves looking light and dark,

I added a few ribbon and twine bows and some gems to give each wreath a very different look.

It is kind of hard to see all of the details in this photo - but there is a lot of texture to each wreath.
I popped up each of the 12 pieces with dimensionals to give the piece some depth.

The card I made matches the 12 Wreaths of Christmas framed piece.
I used the Cottage Wreaths Bundle again - along with the Christmas Banners Bundle.  I started with an Evening Evergreen base,  a layer of Evening Evergreen run through the  Time Worn Type Embossing folder.  I cut a piece of Gold Foil with the Deckled Rectangle Dies - but ran it through a second time to make the piece more square, and did the some for the next size down die with Basic White Cardstock.
Adding my stamped and cut wreath and my stamped and cut Merry Christmas, I used dimensionals to pop them up.  I finished off the card with the gold bow and some Champagne Gems. 

This is just a classic looking Christmas Card with that touch of elegance.  

This is going to be a small hop this month - so please take the time to look at what other Seasonal Projects have been created by the other participants!

In the past few years my interests have grown from fabric to paper and now to dishes too! I just love prints, polkadots, plaids and paisleys- hence the blog name.
