Christmas Wreath

Hi there everyone! Hope you are well. I hope that you are enjoying your part of the world wherever you may be.

Today I have a card to share with you that I was inspired to make thanks to two challenge blogs.

I have been able to have a play with my new goodies and couldn't wait to get started. 

Here is my card -

I am loving my new dies! I've actually got quite a lot of new things to play with, I'm having trouble deciding on what to use. Life is good, lol.

My Christmas Wreath has been popped up on my Fancy Fold Card. I followed a tutorial over at Split Coast Stampers.

Here is a close up of the wreath.

This is actually my second card that I have made with these dies but the first one will be shown for a challenge that starts at the beginning of the month.

These cards are very, very fiddly having to build the wreath but I love the end result and the time taken is worth it. To assemble the wreath, I have cut out the Twig Wreath and then lots of the Pine Sprig Cluster. I shape all the pieces by rolling them on a pencil or pushing them into my paper piercing mat with my stylus. 
I put a blob of glossy accents onto my silicon craft sheet and using tweezers, I pick up a sprig and dip the end into the glossy accents. I place it onto the base wreath and use my paper piercer to place it. Then I just go around and around and fill it all in.

The two challenges that provided me with inspiration for this card are -


Thanks so much for looking xx
