Retro Merry Wreath

 Hello and welcome back! Here's another Christmas card.

The inspiration for this design came from the challenge at Retro Rubber.

This is pretty much a literal translation of the inspiration photo - I'm just missing the pinecone! I used my Stamparatus to create the wreath with the pine bough stamp from Cherish the Season, which was in the 2020 Holiday Mini Catalog. The banner was created with Banner Blast and the Simply Serif Mini Alphabet stamps, which appeared in the 2014 Sale-A-Bration catalog and the 2014-2015 Annual Catalog, respectively. Many of the tools I used are "retro" as well.

Thanks for stopping by, and happy stamping!
