Christmas Wreath

Happy Boxing Day to all. 
I hope you all had a memorable Christmas day with your loved ones.

In a recent post I mentioned that I created several 'production-line' cards. The following
are those. Although the design is identical, the matting and bow colours are different,
as are the different greens I sponged onto the wreath foliage. Therefore I am still 
honouring my own rule of never making two cards the same.

I bought the wreath die during the year, and this was the first time I used it. I LOVE IT!!
Despite the intricacy of the foliage, the wreath is released from the die very easily.

Unfortunately the gorgeous sparkle of the glitter on all the foliage
does not show up in any of the photos.

I left this wreath completely white, with a heavy coating of
glue which was then sprinkled with fine glitter.

For this wreath I 'smooshed' several darker greens onto a sheet of
white cardstock, the cut the wreath from that.

For all the bows I cut a section of the die from whichever cardstock
I had used for the matting, then carefully cut the bow from the 
foliage and attached it to the original bow.
