Merry Poinsettia Wreath cu redo 07840
Weekly-Favorite
Today we’re taking another look at the Our Daily Bread designs November release! There are some really fabulous dies & images this month & they work so well with the previous Christmas releases.  Merry Poinsettias retake07870
For my Christmas wreath card, I die cut the large dp layer & the white layer. After edging the white layer w/ a gold paint pen, I attached them together. For the wreath, I die cut a Doily out of white along w/ some Peaceful Poinsettias & Merry Mosaics. I also die cut the two poinsettias out of the same dp I used for the large layer. I used a small circle die for the gold poinsettia centers & I tucked in a few gold branches on the right I die cut using one of the Lovely Leaves dies & a couple of Pinecones on top. I tucked a white die cut Windowsill Candle die cut into the center of the wreath.

After die cutting one large & one medium bow out of the brushed gold c/s, I though the medium was a tad too small but the bow part looked super on top of the large bow. I also die cut one gold Merry & 3 heavy white Merrys then stacked them together for more dimension.

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.

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.

A big Congrats to  Roberta, the newest Featured Stamper (FS359)! She has such a wonderful gallery! I chose THIS beautiful card to case. I kept the large oval and shaving cream background, but I used different image, different colors and made mine a Christmas card.

On my card today, I’m using this really wonderful candle image. I just love it! I thought it would look really nice w/ an opening behind it and the stained glass stamped on top. Logically, the stained glass should show thru the glass of the Hurricane lamp, but y’all will have to overlook that one. It was getting late and that was a bit too much to do. Especially since I already did a special “into the window” treatment. It’s a lot likeout of the box” but it goes into the cut out instead of out of it. After stamping the image, I lightly penciled in the shape of the oval opening I wanted to die cut. Then I cut around the parts that I needed to have on top of the die to keep from cutting them off and I inserted the oval die as shown.

It’s just a rough cut around the candle now…I’ll trim it after I die cut the oval.

This is how it looks with the bottom of the die inserted under the bottom of the image. All ready to die cut now.

Die cutting and embossing all finished! Now I’ll trim it and color the image. The stained glass image was gold embossed on a piece of dk purple shaving cream background I made ages ago. I liked the contrast of the dk purple behind the candle. The greeting was stamped below and my finished card is 4.25 x 5.50. These are the Copics I used to color it.
