This card was made for three challenges: a sketch challenge for Hand Stamped Sentiments #221, a color challenge for colourQ #310 and a photo inspiration challenge at Inkspirational #92. In the color challenge, Kiwi Kiss and Riding Hood Red are retired colors that I do not have, so I substituted Pear Pizzazz and Real Red.
Four square panels of different color cardstock were adhered to a piece of paper. Then the wreath die was placed so that about each quarter of the wreath covered a different color. The paper was die cut and the results were the multi-colored wreath. The acorns were also die cut from cardstock.
The chevrons were punched from various scraps of DP and the sentiment was stamped on a strip of cardstock than adhered to another strip and cut into an arrow shape. The white cardstock was stamped and the edges sponged. The card was then assembled to a green card base. The sentiment and acorns were popped up with foam. The inside of the card was lined with white card stock and decorated with punched chevrons.
