Christmas Wreath

Despite the fact that I already have a huge collection of stamps, I was tempted to buy more at a show on Sunday when I saw them being demonstrated on the Card-io Stand.  The demonstrations appeared to use stamps from numerous stamp sets but I did stick at buying two - a twiggy one and one of the Christmas ones.  However this did mean that when I came to make a card I had to search through my collection to find something to add to the wreath and also had to improvise a bit with the Christmas trees (should have got that set as well I think).  It seems ages since I made a card without doing any die cutting but this one is all stamping and on one layer for a change. Small amount of distress ink and crystal glitter added.

Wreath - Card-io twig stamp (oriental)
Additions to wreath - from some discontinued See-D stamp sets (years old)
Snowman and chalets - Card-io stamps
Trees - improvised using tips of a tree stamp
Greeting - from a freebie Christmas set in my stash
