Wondrous Wreath Remake

Hi There!

I was going through a box of projects that I've made in the last couple of years but had never posted on my blog.  I was looking for ideas for some simple Christmas cards.  Here's a card that I designed for my 2014 Christmas card classes.

Wondrous_Wreath_Noel_2014

I really like the simple design of this card because it allows you to focus on the wreath.  Here's the inside of the card.

I love the simplicity of the greeting, too.  Since some of the items used on this card are no longer available, I decided to remake the card using supplies that are currently available.

Wondrous_Wreath_Noel_2015

Both cards are essentially the same; just a few subtle differences.  The remade card begins with a card base of Cherry Cobbler.  A piece of Old Olive cardstock was embossed in the Big Shot using the Lucky Stars Textured Impressions embossing folder.  The edges of the embossed cardstock were sponged with Old Olive ink and the inked sponge rubbed lightly over the raised stars to bring them into higher relief.  A strip of Merry Moments Designer Series Paper was adhered horizontally across the center of the embossed panel.  Then a length of Gold 1/8" ribbon was wrapped around the panel and Designer Series Paper strip and knotted at the right side of the panel.  The panel was adhered at the center of the card front.

A piece of Kraft Corrugated Paper was die cut in the Big Shot using the Deco Labels Collection Framelits and adhered at the left side of the card front.  The wreath images from the Wondrous Wreath stamp set were stamped on Very Vanilla cardstock with Old Olive, Mossy Meadow, and Cherry Cobbler inks (it's a three-step stamping technique) and the wreath die cut in the Big Shot with the Wonderful Wreath Framelits.  The wreath hanger was die cut from Cherry Cobbler cardstock and adhered at the top center of the Corrugated Paper (about half of the hanger was snipped off) and the wreath positioned centered over the circular area of the Corrugated Paper and adhered using Stampin' Dimensionals.  The bow image was stamped on Very Vanilla cardstock, die cut with the bow die, and adhered at the top center of the wreath using a Mini Glue Dot.  The "Noel" was die cut from Gold Foil Sheets and adhered to the wreath with rolled up Mini Glue Dots placed under the "N" and the "L".

The inside sentiment area was lined with a piece of Very Vanilla cardstock.  A piece of Merry Moments Designer Series Paper (the reverse side of the paper used on the card front) was adhered along the left side of the liner.  A piece of Gold 1/8" ribbon was adhered on the right and left edges of the paper with the ends of the ribbon folded over to the back of the liner.  The greeting was stamped at the upper center of the liner using Old Olive ink.

The envelope flap of the Medium Very Vanilla Envelope was embossed in the Big Shot with the Lucky Stars Textured Impressions embossing folder.  

So, which card appeals to you?
