Spent a long long time punching out the leaves for this and made my hand sore so resorted to using my foot after a while!! (A trick I learnt from Maureen.....lol)
It was painstaking sticking them all on the embossed circle individually but I got there in the end.
I'm beginning to use this diamond shaped embossing folder nearly as much as the swiss dots one - But I do like it and think it's a perfect 'all occasion' design and is suitable for a man's card too.
I used white pearlised cardstock and red polka dot paper and placed some red satin ribbon across the paper join.
I put the 'wreath' on the card with foam pads for a bit of dimension positioning it slightly over the edge of the card and then trimmed it to the card edge for an 'off centre' effect.
I stuck on a small red bow and some red gems for a bit of bling!
The sentiment was stamped using Stazon Blazing Red Ink.
This is my second entry into the 'Bit of Bling' Less Is More challenge this week and I'm feeling quite smug with myself as my Christmas card stash is growing - albeit slowly!
Guylou also has a 'wreath' challenge this week.
