A Wondrous Wreath Christmas Card

Today I thought I would put a card together using the wreath from the "Wondrous Wreath" set.  I don't have this set but I did have an extra wreath made up from a stamping event a while back.  I don't recall why I had an extra one but I did and I hung onto it.  Just like I hung onto the "Merry" from the "Expressions" Thinlit dies.  I had that merry stuck to my laminating machine since last winter.  I didn't want to toss it.  I remembered how difficult it was to remove it from the die.  I didn't have plans for making more so I just wanted to preserve that one for as long as I could.  And I did!  About a year!!!

When this wreath was made I remember stamping the lighter green and then taking another stamp in the set and stamping the darker green.  Then the berries were stamped on top of it all.  This wreath set has tabs so you can get the images lined up right.  The bow is separate.  You stamp it and use the die to cut it out.  That was set in place using Dimensionals.  

My background is a Cuttlebug Snowflake folder.  I found it at JoAnn's and just had to buy it.  I am such a snowflake freak!!!  It was just too adorable to pass up.

The "Merry" is stuck in place because I had run my card stock through my Xyron machine to put sticky stuff on the back side.  I can't imagine trying to glue that thing in place.  What a mess that would be.  

I layered the card with Real Red card stock and that is about it.  It's a simple enough card to make.  There are other words that are in the current Occasions catalog if you wanted to make a card like this without any retired or contraband items!!!

Thank you SO much for visiting today,
