Creating a faux Letterpress look by using several layers of the Wreath Die Cuts inked with Couture Color . Then run it through the Bigshot with a rubber mat to make the impression.

A simple sentiment and a few Sequins completed the card.

  56. Oh, I recognize that technique! It's always nice to see that other people can duplicate all those techniques that Jennifer McGuire shows us. It gives me hope that I too will someday achieve them! :D But what a smart choice to use that wreath; it makes for a beautiful card, and creates a huge amount of dimension with the berries and bow on the impressed wreath. And I like the pink and green that you used; it looks very sophisticated. Thanks for sharing your creativity with us and participating in Taheerah's advent calendar!
