We are getting into the holiday season and this post today sharing how to make a wreath with die cuts for your holiday cards is perfectly timed!
Let’s take a look at how this comes together – it’s so easy and cute and you can create wreaths in all sizes for all you projects.
First Allie cut a whole bunch of the elements using the Wreath With Berries Die. This die was specially designed for holiday themed projects in a size that could allow you to go large for, say, slimline cards or whole card fronts like this one, or even scale it down for gift tags and added features on other projects. PRO TIP: Always feel free to cut the die cuts up into even smaller pieces to fill in or to really shrink down your elements.
After Allie cut these from her pale green card stock, she colored the elements using deeper and darker shades of green plus a lovely deep red for her holly berries. Note the little white opaque pen details on some of the berries for shine!
Then she die cut a circle from white card stock and stamped her sentiment in the center. She added foam tape to the back in preparation for adding it to her project.
Now she built the wreath around the outside edge of the circle, adding and tucking and sticking things down when she was happy.
When her wreath was done, she stamped, colored and die cut her little gnome friend and added him to the wreath with more dimensional adhesive. The SUPER cute thin about this project is you can add any element here – a snowman, Santa, a gift – anything you like and your card is going to be just as adorable!
Then Allie stamped the string background stamp with Versamark, heat embossed it with gold embossing powder and cut it with the second largest due from the Deckle Nested Dies set.
She added that panel to her card front and popped on her wreath made from all her pretty die cuts. To keep the bit of bling going, she added some Stickles over the berries. We love it!
