JOY

The girls who attended my November Stamp-In created a really pretty wreath card utilizing the Daydream Medallions stamp set. So easy, but looks so classy!




Remember how I punched the star for the card in this post from the leftover Real Red glimmer paper I had made for a workshop project? This was that project.

I wanted to add some "berries" to this wreath, and couldn't decide what to use, when my eyes landed on the beautiful blue glimmer paper I had previously made for this card. And I thought, why not? So, following the same directions as here, I created a strip of Real Red glimmer paper, and punched the "berries" out with a standard paper punch.



If you would like to give this card a try, here's how:

Supplies:
Perfect Punches stamp set 
Daydream Medallions stamp set

Naturals White cardstock
Pear Pizzazz cardstock
Real Red cardstock

Real Red ink
Old Olive ink

Big Shot
Floral Frames Collection Framelits
Paper Punch
Real Red Ribbon
Stampin' Dimensionals
Vintage Wallpaper Embossing Folder
1 3/8" Circle Punch
Glue Dots

Instructions:
Emboss a 3 3/4" x 5" piece of Naturals White cardstock with the Big Shot inside the Vintage Wallpaper Embossing Folder. Adhere this piece to a standard size, 5 1/2" x 8 1/2", Naturals White card base.

In Old Olive ink, stamp the largest and the second largest medallions on the Pear Pizzazz cardstock. Using the second largest and the third largest of the Floral Frames Framelits, cut each of the medallions out with the Big Shot.

Use the appropriate sized Framelits from the Circles Collection to cut out the center of each of the medallions. Adhere the medallions together with a few Stampin' Dimensionals to form a wreath

On a scrap of Naturals White cardstock, stamp "Joy at Christmas" in Real Red. Punch it out with the 1 3/8" Circle Punch, and adhere to the center of the wreath with a Stampin' Dimensional in the center.

Tie a bow with the red ribbon, and adhere it to the wreath with a Glue Dot.

To make the berries for the wreath, punch them out of the glimmer paper you made, and attach them to the wreath with green glue.

Joyous
Smiles.
