Merry Christmas Wreath Card

Hello Scrappers!!  Last year the Martha Stewart branch punch was the rave.  I still love using it so I made this by punching three different shades of Green.  I also cut a wreath frame out of card stock to attach the branches to.  I added foam tape to the back of the frame to add dimension.  This is a 4-1/4x5-1/2" card base with a green, red, and white mat.  The white mat I embossed with the snow flake Cuttlebug embossing folder.  I added a red bow, and for the sentiment I added three layers of the same colors of card stock.  I stamped Merry Christmas, and added one layer of foam tape to the back.  For the bow, I used my Bow Easy.  This is a great tool when you have to make several bows in various sizes.  I have a picture of the Bow Easy under the tool section on my side bar.  I will have a booth at a craft fair in December, and this is one of the cards that I will be selling.  Fingers crossed!  Lorraine

  2. Thank you Martina. Actually the wreath is put together very quickly. I just punch a bunch of branches and put the wreath together while I'm watching tv. I made 10 in one short evening.

  8. Lorraine - I love this card! What a brilliant idea :) Instead of a wreath, I tried it as a tree, but tomorrow I plan to try a wreath also. Thanks for the inspiration!
