Christmas Wreath using the Arrange a Wreath bundle

 The warm temperatures outside belie the fact that this is indeed well into the month of November, and Christmas is fast approaching.

Today I pulled out the Arrange a Wreath Bundle to make a Christmas card featuring a wreath.  I mostly used mainly the accompanying dies (Build a Wreath) to build the wreath.  The stamps were used for the sentiment in the center.

On a Garden Green card base is layered some Whisper White card stock followed by some Taste of Texture DSP.  Using one of the circles from the Layering Circle dies, a circle is die cut through all the front layers. The DSP die cut is circle was inserted through the aperture in the card front and adhered to the inside Whisper White layer.

To make the wreath, one layer (larger leaf) was die cut in Garden Green and 2 of the more delicate leafed layer in Pear Pizzaz. All three were adhered around the aperture.

The wreath was decorated with 3 larger, 3 medium flowers die cut in Real Red, and 4 small flowers in Whisper White.  Daffodil Delight centers were placed in the centers of each flower and the petals sponged with Gold Delicate ink.  After shaping them they were arranged around the wreath using glue dots.

To finish the wreath a double bow made using the Organza Real Red ribbon was added to the bottom.

Inks:  Garden Green, Gold Delicata

Papers:  Garden Green, Whisper White, Pear Pizzazz, Tasteful Texture DSP, Real Red, Daffodil Delight
