This week, I grabbed MFT's Winter Wreath and hung it on my card front. I have a "How-To" for you this week, so keep on scrolling for a little tutorial.
I love this delicate wreath. I cut it three times, painted each layer, and stacked them. I created a "door hanger"and strung it from that. I added the included bow and some holiday garnish using Christmas Ornaments Die-namics and a Whip Cream Button.
The flourishes are from the Seasonal Sentiments stamp set.
The bow was cut from patterned paper from the My Mind's Eye All Is Bright patterned paper pad.
Here is a peek inside, showing another of the awesome sentiments from Seasonal Sentiments.
Here is a little tutorial for you showing how to create the wreath and door hanger.
Cut three wreaths from Kraft Card Stock.
Paint two of them lightly with Distress Crackle Paint.
Spray one of them generously with Heidi Swapp Color Shine spray.
Let all three dry (I used my heat tool).
Assemble the three layers by dabbing glue randomly on one layer and laying the next one over it. I used a round bottle as a "rolling pin" to adhere the layers together. Then, sprinkle Martha Stewart Snow Glitter over it. Any excess glue will be covered with the glitter and your wreath will have a nice dusting of non-imposing pizzaz.
You will wrap your hanger around your wreath so it is trapped (and secured). This will allow you to adhere your wreath to your card without needing glue on the back side of your wreath.
I added a tiny dimensional behind the holly leaves to give the wreath a little boost.
Here is another look at the completed card.
