Easy Wreath Christmas Card - Color Choice

Happy Monday - hope everyone who had to deal with the snow over the weekend is safe and sound and more importantly warm!'s been a cold one but they say it's going to warm up by Thanksgiving!

Today I have a Christmas card for you that was wicked fun to make!  I am having so much fun with them I think I may be making several more to send out....

I took the My Favorite Things Wreath and cut it several times - I started with a brown one then added 4-5 additional green ones over top, added a bow and stamped the sentiment.  Easy peasy.  Best part is that it looks so darn cute!  It's very dimensional but nothing that will impede sending it through the mail which is nice.  So many times you get bulky cards which are just impossible to mail.

After I finished the first card I was wondering what it would look like on black so initially I embossed the sentiment then again piled on the die-cut wreaths - same colors as on the white one then added the bow.  These were so quick, it only took like 10 minutes to die-cut and assemble both cards - less that that actually because I got a phone call in between so really about 8 minutes.  AND you can use up scraps of green cardstock you have laying around!

I know black isn't traditionally thought of as a Christmas color but personally I like it.  
Which one do you prefer?  I'd love to hear your thoughts.

And this weeks challenge over at CAS on Sunday is #72 - Christmas so I'd like to enter these cards into their challenge!


  1. Black looks good - it makes the green stand out much better!

  2. No contest the black. This is so cute and the fact not bulky a plus.

  3. I like them both! I really like how you stacked the wreath in several colors. It really gives it a lot of depth. Have a blessed Thanksgiving, Roni! :)

  4. I like the black too! Really makes the green pop. Happy Thanksgiving Roni!

  5. What a great idea to layer the die cuts for dimension that isn't bulky. I like them both, but the black version is my favorite because it really showcases the wreath!


Thanks for your thoughts and comments!
