Christmas Wreath

December 1, 2017

Today I am sharing with you my version of an idea I have seen used a lot on Pinterest.  The idea is to use the Leaf Punch that co-ordinates with the Painted Harvest stamp set to create a wreath for your card or 3d item but in my case a card for my lovely hairdresser Lauren and her family.  I started by stamping the solid leaf image from the Painted Harvest stamp set onto Whisper White card using Always Artichoke.  I punched out the images using the co-ordinating Leaf Punch – I really don’t know how many but it was a lot.  I cut a circle from Whisper White card using the largest circle and a slightly smaller circle from the Layering Circle Framelits dies.  I used Tombow Glue applied to the circle and layered on the leaves until I covered almost all of it.  Lastly I stamped six leaves using Cherry Cobbler ink and punched them out.  I layered the leaves together to create a flower and added it to the wreath.  I embossed Cherry Cobbler card using the Pinewood Plank Embossing Folder and attached it to Always Artichoke card and then scored and folded Thick Whisper White card.  I attached the wreath to the embossed Cherry Cobbler card.  I sponged some Always Artichoke ink onto Whisper White card and punched a 1/2″ circle which I added to the flower centre.  I coloured a Clear Faceted Gem using the Dark Cherry Cobbler Stampin’ Blend and added it to the centre of the wreath.

To decorate the inside of the card I simply stamped the greeting from the Watercolour Christmas stamp set using Cherry Cobbler ink.

I really love how gorgeous this wreath looks.  I did use my bone folder to add some dimension to the leaves, but forgot to do it before I started adding them to the circle, which was a little difficult.  I do recommend that you curl your leaves a little using a bone folder BEFORE you attach them to your circle.

I hope I have inspired you to try one of these.

Bye for now,

Kris
