I love the beautiful Classy Cards 'n Such inspiration photo this week and I had to try my version of the wreath. I hope you can join in the Christmas Blooms Challenge, the prize is one of my favorite Christmas dies!
I began by cutting Kraft Card Stock using the Impression Obsession Rectangles dies. It makes such beautiful little layers and the die is all one piece so there's no possibility of misplacing smaller dies. Even though the rectangles were so detailed I felt that the background needed something more. I cut a piece of Authentique Tradition paper and glued it to the center of the smaller rectangle. I then added a piece of red card stock to frame the bigger frame. Using one of the larger Spellbinders dies from the Matting Basics A set, I cut the center out of the red card stock.
For the wreath, I cut out the twig portion of the Impression Obsession Twig Wreath die with Kraft Card Stock and then sponged distress ink to darken the color a little. I cut the pine needles which are also part of the Twig Wreath Set from green card stock and then sponged distress ink on the edges to give a more natural appearance.
The Impression Obsession Large Bow was cut both from white and red card stock and layered to add dimension and depth. I coated the white bow with glue and sprinkled it with glitter so it really shines. The poinsettia's were cut from red card stock and layered and glued together. Small white pearl's were glued to the centers.
