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-inside00096christmas-wreath-copics-00088

    Julie, your card is incredible! The colors are so intense, and I may borrow your use of the arched die. Would never turn out as gorgeous as yours, though.

    I always love seeing your work. The stamped images are beautifully colored and your layers are awesome. I was happy to see that you used that beautiful plaid in both the front and the inside. My eyes did a happy dance!
