Birthday wreath

Neutral CAS

I am always amazed at the effect of light and found when I photographed this in the same room with two different backgrounds, how different the card looked.  So you're getting both versions of the same card!  I'm probably noticing it more too because I usually photograph in natural light.

I embossed the wreath stamp with white EP, stamped the sentiment in black.  Then diecut stars and hearts from metallic card (stars in frosted silver, hearts in linen texture), attaching some directly, others with thin foam dimensional foam.   The hearts are 'drop outs' from a background die.

Wreath stamp: Hero Arts
Sentiment stamp: Tim Holtz
Star dies: Dienamics
Hearts die: Couture Creations (Touch of Love)

Love the design of this card. I know what you mean about the light! It's amazing how different a card can look once photographed isn't it? Great use of a wreath for something non Christmassy too! Lou x
