Christmas Card Club with a Swirly Frames Wreath

Stampin Up Merry Mistletoe, Swirly Frames and the Stamparatus for simple shaker card

I've often looked at the ladies in our merry band of Christmas Card Challenges and am in awe when they share more than one card each fortnight.  I'm in with the more than one gang now as this time whilst I've made a simple design I've made a 'Foo' as folk say in Lincolnshire.  It's a cute little shaker card that I designed with my prize patrol stamp set from Stampin' Up! Onstage.  The wreath is created with one of the stamps from the in coming Stampin' Up! set Swirly Frames.  It made this so easy and I used my Stamparatus, the new Stampin' Up! stamp positioning tool available with the new catalogue on 1 June,  to add the foliage decoration with stamp set Merry Mistletoe which will sadly retire next month.  It's been a go to set for Christmas cards for me and has met so many of our challenge club themes.

I've also used the new in colour Call Me Clover for the green which is a lovely  fresh,vibrant  green and coordinates well with our traditional Real Red for festive cards.  I've stamped the wreath ring in Crumb Cake and used used some new narrow solid ribbon in Real Red for the bow.  I used the decorative ribbon border to add a final touch of green on these 9.9cm (apron 4") square cards.  

Remember it's never too early for the festive season!

Have a great Sunday and don't forgot to check out the other lovely blogs in our challenge group for more inspiration.
