For my Christmas wreath, after coloring it, I die cut it w/ an arch die & did a little out of the box for the parts that hung outside the edge. I was going for the look of a wreath hanging on an arched door. I used some double stitched rectangles to construct the white layer behind it & stamped the greeting over the arch. The two printed papers were die cut, then I stacked them, cut them then put the top of the print on top of the plaid. I used a stitched band behind the arch to go over the split of background paper. Sort of a chair rail look. Since there was still so much blank space below on the plaid paper, I stamped the Christmas on a little rectangle & added the white Merry above it. 

Here’s a look at the inside & below it are the Copics I used. christmas-wreath-inside00096 christmas-wreath-copics-00088

Candle Wreath cu 07806
The Technique Challenge (TLC560) today is to use dies to make a wreath. I used a pair of circle dies to make the basic shape of my wreath, then added all the other die cuts to it. 
Candle Wreath 07794
In fact, my entire card is made up of die cuts. The wreath ring was die cut out of kraft c/s & to add a little shine, I sponged it w/ Brilliance galaxy gold. I treated the little leafy vine & pine cones the same way. The little red flowers, red die cut bow, holly & greeting were coated w/ Wink of Stella & they really sparkle! The large candles were left open to let the paper show through & the greeting was attached under the wreath. 

Here’s a look a the inside.

Pink Christmas Door 07692
For my first card, I made a Christmas wreath on a pink woodgrain door. The wreath was made by using circle dies to make a ring then I die cut all the foliage from the Lovely Leaves dies, the little pinecones from the Fancy Foliage dies, and the little flowers from the Christmas Candles dies and attached them all to the ring. A white bow was die cut using the Small Bow die, added on top of the wreath & a large pearl brad (I colored it w/ a pink Copic) was attached in the center of the bow.

Merry Snowflakes cu 07679
Weekly-Favorite    Best of 2015 SCS
On my second card, I used white heat embossing on tan (lt kraft) card stock. After embossing the beautiful Flourished Merry Christmas, I die cut it w/ one of the matting basics, used a large corner rounder punch on it then used the white ink around the edges & embossed it, as well. Merry Snowflakes 07677
The Snowflake Border was also white embossed then die cut. I added some white embossed snowflakes to accent the Medium Bow & upper corner. The larger one was die cut & the smaller two were fussy cut. A paper crimper was used on the white horizontal band.
