Joy – Wreath ***

This is one of my favorite Xmas stamps, and I just love the idea of purple and white for a Xmas card!  These cards were also published in the September edition of the Australian Cardmaking, Stamping & Papercraft magazine.   The aim was to create two versions of the same card, I really like how they both turned out, although my fave would probably be the simple version…   of course! (my apologies but the photos are quite dark)

  1. Beautiful Therese. Congrats on yet another publication – you’ll have a permanent job with them soon!! Love the HA wreath…it is on my wish list…one day *sigh*. Love both cards, but something about the first one speaks more to me. Beautiful bows also!

  2. I loved these when I saw them in the mag, I have this stamp so I will definately be CASEing them!!! My favourite is the 1st one, it has a beautiful ‘Therese’ feel, CAS and oh so elegant!!! 🙂

  3. These are spectacular Therese. I like the second because I think the ribbon is gorgeous. Such a beautiful color and those pearls and ribbon do the trick.

  4. I love how they turned out! Like you, I like the simpler one better, but they are both amazing! Purple for Christmas? You are so cool to use purple! I always love your cards. 🙂
