Wreath Turnabout - 2 Cards

I have tried out a couple of turnabout stamps for creating easy and wonderful backgrounds for my cards,but this new wreath turnabout set(Concord & 9th) has a much smaller pattern and there are two of them in the set...my first thought was to create something with copper embossing and that's what I did for one of my cards...while on the other card I have simply used various Oxide inks to stamp the pattern...

I started by stamping one of the wreaths on black cardstock with some watermark ink and then heat embossing it with copper embossing powder....it has to be rotated 90 degrees after each stamping a total of four times to get this result...I also stamped and heat embossed the sentiment and a small heart in the middle of the wreath...

On the front of a plain black card base,I adhered a copper coloured paper cut to the same size as the card front..I cut the embossed black panel to the size required and added some black craft foam underneath then adhered it to the card front and my card was ready...

For my second card I picked out these shades of Distress Oxide inks to stamp the other wreath in the stamp set - twisted citron, cracked pistachio, peacock feather and evergreen bough...I then added some dots and the sentiment label stamped with aged mahogany...

I didn't want to add any other colour to my card so I covered the front of the card base with aged mahogany before die cutting the stamped front panel and adhering it to the card base...

These wreath stamps are quite beautiful and versatile...I do hope I can remember to use them to create a few Christmas cards later this year..
