Merry Little Christmas Wreath ~ CCMC528

Hello stampers!  Today's card is for Create with Connie and Mary sketch challenge #528.  I opted for a Christmas card using my new Peaceful Noel set along with the handy dandy Stamparatus.  I absolutely love making wreaths using the Stamparatus and this set is perfect for that.  Here's a video showing how to make a wreath using the Stamparatus and a jig.  It's so much fun!  
I also adore these colors together for Christmas.  They are so rich.  Another couple faves on this card are the Buffalo Check background stamp and the Tin Tile TIEF.  There are just SO MANY awesome new products in the Holiday Catalog!  
Another fun accessory on this card is shimmer spritz, although it doesn't show in any of the pictures.  I spritzed the Crumb Cake card base with a Champagne Shimmer paint and alcohol mixture, as well as the wreath die cut too.  I added another bit of sparkle with the Joyous Noel Glimmer Paper punched with my Decorative Ribbon Border punch.

I'm using the Tic-Tac-Tuesday #5 Challenge from Try Stampin on Tuesday going diagonal with Green, Die Cut, and Dimension.  My die cut circle is popped up on dimensionals, as well as the "Merry Little Christmas" banner.  I think the Tin Tile TIEF give some nice dimension as well.  

Here's a list of my supplies....
Stamps: Peaceful Noel, Buffalo Check
Ink: Tranquil Tide, Mint Macron, Crumb Cake, Merry Merlot
Paper: Crumb Cake, Tranquil Tide, Merry Merlot, White, Joyous Noel Glimmer
Accessories: Decorative Ribbon Border punch, Stamparatus, Linen Thread, Tin Tile TIEF, Circle Thinlits, Champagne Shimmer Paint

Thanks for taking a peek and have a blessed day!
