Prickley Pear Monday

It’s time for another Prickley Pear creation!  I am loving their stamps and every time I browse their store, I find more stamps that I add to my wish list!  Thank goodness for wish lists!  🙂

Today, I’m sharing another simple holiday card using a pretty wreath stamp from the Birdcage Winter 2 clear stamp set.  I chose my decorative paper first and then colored the wreath stamp with markers before stamping the image.  I then cut it out with my favorite little fine pointed scissors.  I used a circle punch to punch out the middle, making it easier to cut out the inside of the wreath (…rather than injure myself with my scissors while attempting to pierce through the middle to get started…lol!).

I used clear and red Stickles to add some sparkle and then popped the wreath up on foam adhesive pieces to give it dimension.

Stamps – Prickley Pear (Birdcage Winter 2 clear stamp set)
Paper – SU Certainly Celery & Garden Green CS, My Mind’s Eye DP (Holly Jolly)
Ink – SU Garden Green (sentiment)

Accessories – SU Real Red grosgrain ribbon, Stickles, foam adhesive (popped up main image)

Have a Happy Monday!
