Christmas Wreath

This project truly was a labor of love as I had to die-cut the wreath from four different colors to I could paper piece it all together.  It's a CASE (Copy And Share Everything) of one I saw at Taylored Expressions.  The only things different are the colors and the bow.  There was no watermark on the card so I don't know who made the original but I do thank them for the inspiration.

The Emerald Envy, Mint Macaron and Real Red work so well together.  I added two neutrals in the white ribbon and the Crumb Cake background.  It was a fun card to put together but it did take time to get all those small pieces in place.  Should I mention the fact that I am one of those crafters who cannot stand the feel of glue on my fingers?  Yes, it's true.  I have to wash it off the minute it gets on my fingers or I get edgy.  Hmm?  I wonder if that could be why it took so long to make this card.  😊


Stamp Set:  Flurry of Wishes (sentiment); Ink:  Crumb Cake, Emerald Envy Stampin' Write Marker; Cardstock:  Emerald Envy, Mint Macaron, Real Red, Whisper White; Patterned Paper:  Serene Scenery Designer Series Paper Stack; Other:  Wreath Cutting Plate (Taylored Expressions, Rhinestone Basic Jewels, Sheer White Ribbon (May Arts)

    1. Thanks, Joanne! I love paper piecing, too, even though it can be time consuming. Oh, and the fact I have to use glue. :-)
