CWCM Christmas 2014 intro card

I love this stamp set, Wondrous Wreath, and am so glad I get to make a project with it just for Create With Connie and Mary subscribers!  

This card has a Crumb Cake backround and I cut out the “Joy” with the wonderful Wreath framelit from the cardfront.  Stamp a wreath onto Very Vanilla cardstock, cut it out and add a red glimmer paper bow – that’s it!!

I look forward to seeing you at our Holiday Collection 2014!!
