I love everything about this card. I love Winifred. I love Winifred dressed up in her Holiday best. I love the red stripes. I love the festive wreath. I love how striking it is!

I chose to dress Winifred up with the Christmas hat and scarf and a piece of holly from this Winter Wardrobe set

I die cut Winifred and assembled her. Remember to add adhesive to the back of your cardstock before you die cut the pieces. This way, you just have to peel and stick the pieces together and eliminates the need for liquid glue which can be messy

Looking fabulously festive Wini!

Shifter Stripes! It’s one of my most used stencils for sure.
I inked a piece of hot pressed watercolour paper using this stencil and Candied Apple Ink Pad.
I chose to use a blending tool as opposed to a blending brush here, as I didn’t want the gap between the stripes to be too small

I love to use a two tone effect on my stenciled images.
Here I used Black Soot ink over the red on the top and bottom of the card. I simply went over the red ink with a small amount of black ink, so the red ink just appears deeper and richer

I cut a wreath from green cardstock and pulled out some pre cut greenery pieces I already had to bulk the wreath up a bit

Then I matted the card topper onto some black cardstock for a good strong contrast and to bring in the black from Winifred’s stripes

I adhered the wreath and greenery to the background using Distress Collage Medium Matte

And added a Christmas Quote Chip in the top right hand corner of the card and some mini bells around the wreath

I used a double sided foam tape to adhere Winifred to the front of the card

Last, I added a little festive twine around the bottom of the card which I felt just balanced it perfectly

Bold, striking and really easy to make!
