Christmas Wreath

A Christmas card today to join in with a few challenges.

I embossed a piece of white card, slightly smaller than the card blank, with a brick effect embossing folder.   I used a new (NBUS) wreath die from the Sizzix 'Wreath & Snowflake' set with green card and added tiny red pearls for berries.  The bow was made with a Sue Wilson die.   The sentiment is a stamp is from the Stampin' Up '#Elfie Cling' set, stamped in red onto a piece of vellum and wrapped round the embossed card.

I am joining in the following challenges:

  28. Your card looks great! I love wreaths...both on cards or IRL. My daughter does a wreath making get together in her garage every Christmas. Did you know it takes a laundry basket full of greens to mak a nice full wreath?
    With covid, we will have to have a fake wreath this year.

    Your card looks great and I really like that sentiment too.
    Thanks for taking part in the September Rudolph Days Challenge.
