Did you notice the Seasonal Wreath Dynamic TIEF in the annual catalog? I didn't at first, which is rather shocking, since I'm usually all over anything Big Shot related.
I saw those lovely embossed leaves and immediately thought about painting them with the Vegas Gold and Bright Copper Shimmer Paints that are coming in the holiday catalog. The effect is stunning! I really wish you could see how beautiful it looks in real life. I haven't made a square card in a long time, but this wreath just begged to be made into one, so I listened to it. What....your stamps and accessories don't talk to you, too?
After embossing the wreath on Whisper White Thick cardstock, it was trimmed down to 3-3/4" square and painted. The paint is somewhat transparent if you just use one layer, so I went back over it to get better coverage. Still could have used more, but I have to tell you - it was very time consuming painting each leaf.....not something I'll likely do again, even if it does look awesome!
The wreath was then mounted on a 3-7/8" square Copper Glimmer Paper mat (coming in the Holiday catalog!) and then onto a 4-1/4" square card base. That gorgeous shimmery bow was made with the Merry Merlot & Copper Reversible Ribbon, also a Holiday catalog item. The greeting is in the new Beautiful Baubles set.
If you need a Holiday catalog, let me know and I'll mail one to you. There's still time to make your wish list before the catalog goes live September 5th!
