Christmas Wreath

The new issue of Creative stamping landed on my doormat a few days ago and I really love the stamp set that came with it - I had to get crafting with them right away!

I decided the wreath was perfect to use on a circular card, so I used an old Marianne Creatables die to cut a square white card, making sure it overlapped the folded edge and also making sure the scalloped edge was positioned in such a way that the card would stand with the fold at the top. Then I cut and embossed the same die with green card and attached that over the card front.

The twiggy wreath from the stamp set is stamped onto white card and die cut to fill the centre of the circular card, and an Altenew sentiment stamped in the middle.

Then I stamped a selection of foliage, cones, spices and orange slices, coloured them with pencils and fussy cut them. Oh, my poor aching hands! I wish we could buy die sets to go with some of these covermount sets! I arranged them on the background and used Pinflair glue to attach and give them dimension.

I am sharing this with
