Hard to believe we are already on Challenge #10 at Dynamic Duos! The color duo this week is Rich Razzleberry & Old Olive. The closest colors I had were Vineyard Berry & Olive by Close To My Heart.
I really enjoy making Christmas cards and Christmas in July seems to be the going trend at the moment. The Remarkable Wreath stamp set is not a traditional Christmas stamp set, and can be used for a variety of cards year round. I chose to stamp my leaves in olive to mimic holly and my berries in vineyard berry.
Design Tips-My circles were cut with Circle Stax dies by MFT. My decorative shapes were cut with the Cricut Art Philosophy cartridge. For my embossed panel, I ran Vineyard Berry through my Cuttlebug with the Fancy Fan embossing folder. I then brayered Vineyard Ink over the embossed image to darken the pattern. I layered grosgrain ribbon over the lace trim.
