Everything Eleanor Christmas

It's been a while since I've pulled Everything Eleanor off the shelf. This was one of my favorite stamp sets for a long time, and I still really like it! I love to use non Christmas stamp sets to create Christmas cards. It's a great way to challenge myself; and challenge = motivation. Not that I need much motivation to hang out in my stamp room!

This card is pretty simple, except for the wreath. I wanted to have the inside of my wreath match the background. I stamped the background stamp onto a separate piece of Whisper White card stock with Soft Sky ink. Then I inked up the circle image with my Island Indigo Stampin' Write Marker (not inking up the lined center). I stamped it on top of the background image. Now the circle is larger than the background, so I filled in the white by sponging in Soft Sky, very lightly, until it blended. Then I used a circle Framelit to cut out the wreath. I wanted some depth to the wreath, so I used my blender pen with a light amount Smoky Slate ink and added a very light shadow to the inside.

If that was perfectly confusing, watch my video tutorial to clear things up!
