Wondrous Wreath Flip Card

I have a really cool card to share today.  I saw this idea for a Wondrous Wreath flip card on You Tube and just had to try it.

Isn't this a gorgeous card!!  Sam Bracegirdle from Rubberdubber made a a couple of flip cards and videos so I gave one a try and had success!

The card base is Pool Party 6 3/4" x 5" stamped with White Craft Ink and the Hardwood background stamp.

The focal point of the card is the wreath.  It's three layers of color- Pool Party, Bermuda Bay and Real Red.   I wanted a bold sentiment, so I used my go to "Holiday Cheer" greeting from Cheerful Tags.  To make the greeting stand out, I added a background made by punching a Real Red Artisan Label and cutting the center portion out.

The inside has a Real Red wreath with the sentiment from Wondrous Wreath.  I kept it simple and clean.  The last thing to go on the card was a sprinkling of stars.  Yes, I had to add stars...couldn't help myself!  I punched out a bunch of Silver Glimmer stars with the Confetti Star Punch (a MUST HAVE!) and added them around the card with a dab of Tombow glue.

I love the bit of sparkle that the stars give, it looks beautiful with these colors.  I am a big fan of traditional Christmas colors, but the combination of the pale blues with red just makes me happy!!
