Hello and Welcome!!!

Watch video tutorial here!!!

I’m so happy and thrilled to be kicking off the brand new Ai Blog Challenge which is called “Diamonds and Pearls” which will challenge you to create a card or project using your favorite baubles! My first thought was to create an elegant wreath card and a “go to” wreath stamp and die set for me is the Ai Christmas Wreath Set (4791).

To set the scene, let’s grab a beautiful blue sky paper and a white woodgrain paper from the Photoplay – It’s a wonderful Christmas – 6″x6″ Paper Pad. For the rectangle die we will be using the Ai Rectangle A2 Double-Stitched Dies (5063).

Next, we can die cut a window using the Ai Journal Template Die Set (5543). This set contains several dies that not only create a wonderful journal but also can be used separately and in many different ways!

To add to our elegant look we can stamp and die cut the beautiful wreath using some embossing powder in Liquid Platinum.

For our coloring, we will simply add a bit of Haze Blue marker and some Wink of Stella Clear Glitter Pen for some sparkle.

The sentiments will come from the new Ai Christmas Sentiments Set (5542). This set has tons of Holiday sentiments that you will love!

Let’s die cut a pretty banner for our sentiment using that same Ai Journal Template Set that we used earlier.

We will pop-up the wreath and sentiment using some 3D Foam Tape. Finally, we can add some beautiful baubles and pearls…of course!
