2020 Arrange A Wreath
I am using the colors from the Heartwarming Hugs DSP for the color palette.
The sketch is Create with Connie & Mary Thursday Challenge #CCMC639.
In addition to the Wreath Builder Dies (part of the Arrange A Wreath bundle) I added 2 sizes of flowers from the Confetti Flowers Border punch. Between you and me, when I first saw this punch I didn't think I needed it. I mean I am sure I have a tiny flower die in one of my sets BUT I am so happy that I changed my mind about this punch. I reach for it a lot and have used it much more than I thought I would. Well worth it!
I almost always line the inside of my card with either a Whisper White or Very Vanilla panel and a strip of DSP or cardstock. I will probably add a die cut or punch too, just to dress up the inside of the card.

Time for the Festive Friday Challenge. I have exciting news! The Challenge team has grown and we now have 9 members on the team. Please be sure to go and check out the Festive Friday blog and meet all the new team members!
Yes, I used the Wreath Builder dies again! This time in two different kinds of vellum. One is the Plush Poinsettia Specialty DSP and the other is Vellum cardstock. The pattern on the vellum is flocked so not only is it pretty to look at, it is soft too.
The Festive Friday Challenge is super fun and easy to play along with. We have an Inspo List which features items that are inspired by the festivity. All you need to do is pick 3 elements from the Inspo List to feature on your card and post it to the Festive Friday gallery. Here is a little more information about the challenge and the Inspo List.
Can you see what elements I used for my card? I sure hope you can. I picked red, black, loyalty/love sentiment and embossing.
Thank you for stopping by! I hope you will enter Festive Friday Challenge #FF0065!

You know I love wreaths on my cards. I think they are so fun to dress up and they are great for different occasions & holidays. When I saw the new Arrange a Wreath bundle my first thought was, I want that but it can wait. Well, I looked at it again and realized it couldn't wait and just like that it was in my first order. I am so happy since it was the perfect bundle for me to use for the Festive Friday Challenge #FF0061.
I no longer have any citrus fruit stamps so i focused on using orange, yellow, and green from the Inspo list on my card for the challenge.
I made the wreath using both of the wreath dies, one in Shaded Spruce and the other in the new In Color, Just Jade. The flowers are in Daffodil Delight and Pumpkin Pie. In the die set there are 2 dies for the larger flower and 3 for the smaller flower, yay! Having the extra dies makes it so much faster to make the flowers. The centers of the flowers are from the Elegant Faceted Gems.
I added the heart also from the Arrange A Wreath bundle to the center of the wreath, adding another item from the Inspo List, sweet sentiment. I cut out 2 hearts one in Pumpkin Pie and one in Daffodil Delight. On the Pumpkin Pie heart I added a piece of Foam Adhesive on the back behind the letters, you could also use dimensionals. I then layered the letters from the Daffodil Delight heart on to the exposed adhesive.
The background is one of the Many Medallions die. Before I die cut I put a piece of Adhesive Sheet on the back of the Whisper White cardstock. This is a double-sided adhesive and is very handy to use to adhere intricate die cuts.
