Wondrous Wreath for Autumn

I so love the "Wondrous Wreath" stamp set, especially after realizing how easily it can be used for seasons other than Christmas. For this card, I chose to make it look like the wreath is hanging on a door, using a retired brad for the door knob (although our candy dots will work just as well). I raised up "panels" on the door with Stampin' Dimensionals after sponging the edges and some of the "door" itself with Chocolate Chip ink.

For the multi-colored leaves, I squirted a few drops of ink from bottles of our refill onto a baby wipe which was folded and laying in a plastic tray. That became my ink pad. I stamped the second layer of leaves in Pumpkin Pie. How incredibly easy to line everything up with these Photopolymer stamps!

I could have stamped the bow from the set and cut it out with the coordinating framelits, but decided I really wanted the soft dimension of our new cotton ribbon.  Using the "Grateful for You" greeting from the "For All Things" stamp set and inking only the word "Grateful" makes this a perfect Thanksgiving card. I made another card using the full greeting, which easily converts the card to a birthday card.

The final decoration is an acorn from the Autumn Wooden Elements pack. I colored the top with one of the Crumb Cake Assortment of Stampin' Blendabilities Markers. On other cards like this one, I used one of the leaves colored with a Pumpkin Pie Stampin' Blendabilities Marker.
