Lisa Horton Christmas Wreath stepper Christmas card

Good morning and welcome to another challenge at ABC Christmas Challenges.

Wilma is our host this time and she has a lovely little surprise for the winner of the challenge.

Well, we only have 2 more challenges for the year after this one and I know my stash isn't as big as I would like so I need to get a move on! If you are like me and you need to get a wriggle on, I hope our themes this time will encourage you to dive in. We have

U for Unusual Christmas Colours
V for Velvet

I went for unusual colours and came up with this card.

 I began by making the background paper using Oxide spray inks and then die cut and matted it onto silver mirri card.

For the wreath, I used my NBUS Lisa Horton Christmas Wreath set that consists of a die, layering stencils and a 3d embossing folder. I really enjoyed using the set and it has great dimension in real life but my photo hasn't captured it, although the close-up at the top gives a little flavour of it.

I finished off by die-cutting the sentiment from Simon Says Stamp and laying it across the centre.

You'll find plenty of inspiration over on the ABC Christmas Challenges blog and you can post your entries there too.

I'd like to play along at

Thanks for stopping by,

I love the colours you have used here Carol and the wreath design is so pretty using the combination of stencils, EF and die by Lisa Horton and can be used in lots of different ways, and the stepper shape is great too. x

Carol, what a stunning Christmas card!!!! I LOVE the color and I love that you made it into a step card. That wreath is just gorgeous and looks pretty dimensional to my eyes. The little pops of red are fabulous. Yes, I am scrambling too, to get my stash fuller. lol Some years I'm on top of my stash and other years I'm not. :-( Hugs, Brenda

I thought I had commented on this gorgeous card, but came for a visit and saw it hadn't been accepted. I had to let you know I think this is so very beautiful Carol.
