Prima 12 Days of Christmas Cards - Trims

Good morning, Bloggers, and Happy Thanksgiving to my American friends! I'm sneaking in for a quick before work post to share a Christmas card I made for Prima's 12 Days of Christmas Cards challenge - Day 6 Prima Trims.

I started out with layers of Prima Cigar Box Secrets papers - they might not scream Christmas when you look at each individual sheet, but the reds and golds add a festive touch. To create my wreath, I started with one of the Blue Fern Studios Graduated Circles chippies, and wound Prima Wire Thread in Dusty around (and around and around!) it. To give it a Christmasy feel, I then misted the whole thing with Color Bloom sprays in Tea Stain and Antique Gold for some glorious shimmer.

I used a Prima Providence Vine in Basil to accent the wreath, leaving the stems and sprigs their natural white, but colouring the leaves gold using Gold Foil Color Bloom on a paintbrush. One of the Prima Sunset - Dark vellum flowers made a stunning but understated centrepiece for the wreath.

I finished the card off with a resist canvas banner coloured with chalk edgers, some alpha stickers and a couple curlicues of wire thread.

Thank you for stopping in today!
