Classy Cards Folk Christmas

Hello, this is my card for the new Classy Cards 'n Such Wrappings Challenge.  My first thought with the ribbons and wrappings in the inspiration photo was to use this wreath die with a variety of designer papers.

I ended up only using one designer pad but the Authentique Tradition double sided paper pad was enough.  I liked the look of this paper, combined with the Kraft Card Stock the star wreath reminded me of American Folk Art.

I began by cutting the wreath with Kraft Card Stock, then I cut it out a few more times using Authentique Tradition design paper.  I cut up the stars mixing the colors up randomly around the wreath.  I mounted the wreath with Joy! foam pads onto a piece of white card stock I embossed with the Anna Griffin embossing folder.

I then matted the embossed layer onto red and then Kraft Card Stock before gluing it onto the white card front.  I added a bow, a button and twine and then some red stickles on top of some of the stars to blend the bow color better with the wreath.

Thanks for looking!  Remember to use my coupon code JENNY-10 to save 10% off your entire purchase at Classy Cards 'n Such.
