Have you seen the new Northern Frost Decorative Strip Die (#120901) from the Holiday Mini Catalog? I recently added it to one of my orders and I am so glad that I did. It creates the most beautiful snowflakes. One day I was looking at the snowflakes and thought that if the snowflakes were punched in green card stock they would look alot like pine boughs. I am always looking for ways to stretch the use of my tools/supplies, thus the idea for this card was born.
I opted to use only the medium and small flakes for the wreath, so it took a few extra passes through the Big Shot in order to have enough flakes for this project (about five or six times). Just like creating a wreath for the front door, I started with a circle base and then started building...adding enough greenery until I felt like it was full enough.
I created a 5.25" card base with Real Red card stock and layered it with a slightly smaller piece of Garden Green card stock. I layered on some Candy Cane DSP from the Holiday Mini Catalog for more interest. I used the Joy at Christmas stamp from the Perfect Punches stamp set (#117022w/120516c) for the center and topped everything off with a big red satin bow and some shiney red buttons (SU-retired).
I hope you have enjoyed this project. Encouraging comments are always appreciated.
You can purchase the supplies for this card at my online store here. Thanks and have a wonderful day!
