Time to Change the Wreath

Even though its December and only 2 weeks away from Christmas, it still felt like fall around here - that is up until this weekend. We got dumped on Saturday night!  Any way, I noticed on Sunday morning how pretty the fall wreath looked.  Its on a covered porch but it was lightly dusted with snow (which all blew away by the time I took this photo.) Well I got to thinking about making a card with a wreath image. I don't have any stamps that are specifically a wreath. But then I got to thinking, what is a wreath anyway.  Its a circle of foliage of some sort. I've seen some lovely cards done making wreaths of leaves, or flowers or stars, so I decided to try my hand at it.

It took several tries and you are only seeing the final one. I really like the final result. This wreath has a comfortable country casual look. The foliage I used on this card is from the Autumn Days stamp set. Check it out in the image of the stamp set below. Its kind of fun to take one image and use it in a different way.

I stamped the image 5 times each in three different colors: Rich Razzleberry, Garden Green and Sahara Sand. The card base is White and the framing layer for the wreath is Crumb Cake. I tied a little Razzleberry ribbon using the 1/4" grosgrain and held on with a Mini Glue Dot. The sentiment is stamped in Razzleberry from the Heard from the Heart stamp set. The corners were punched with the Ticket Corner Punch

All supplies used on this card are from Stampin'UP! Contact Me if you have any questions about this card.  Let me know if there is any way I can help you with your stamping needs.
