Merry Christmas for the Paper Players

 ETA:  My card was chosen as A Cut Above at The Paper Players.
 
Have I told you I love making Christmas cards, well I made another Christmas card following The Paper Players  sketch #164 challenge.
I used all SU cardstock: Whispher White, Cherry Cobler, Old Olive and Always Artichoke.  I embossed the white layer with a Cuttlebug woodgrain EF and matted it with Cherry Cobler punched with a Martha Stewart border punch.  The wreath is made with MFT Winter Wreath Die-namics.  I cut the bow with Cherry Cobler and added an extra punched circle for dimension.  I cut 3 layers of the wreath - 2 Old Olive and 1 Always Artichoke and layered them. I added some small punched circles of Cherry Cobler for my ornaments and blinged them up with SU Dazzling Details.  You can see it better in this close-up photo.

The sentiment is from the Michael's dollar bin and I have had it a couple of years. I stamped it in Cherry Cobler ink and that finishes my card.
 
Thanks for stopping by.  I really appreciate your comments.
 
Happy Stamping,
JoAnn
