Today’s card is yesterday’s design in traditional, red and green, Christmas colors. I was thinking of a quick & easy design, for assembly line card making, that allows you to make two cards with one wreath.
This card began with a Very Vanilla card base (8 1/2″ X 5 1/2″, folded at 4 1/4″) to blend with the layer of Toile Tidings Designer Paper. I took the extra step of embossing it with the Tasteful Textile Embossing Folder, but this isn’t necessary.
I cut the first wreath circle from Real Red Cardstock, the second wreath circle from Garden Green Cardstock, held the two together, and cut them in half with my Paper Snips.
The two halves will fit flush to the border, so you don’t have to worry about overhang to trim. This makes gluing easy, because you can see exactly where you need to place the dots of glue.
You just need to remember to leave a tiny bit of the wreath unglued, for your sentiment placement. “Happy Christmas” is from the new Snow Wonder Stamp Set, stamped in Real Red Ink on Thick Very Vanilla Cardstock, and cut with a Snow Time Die. I attached it with Dimensionals, so it would have, guess what….dimension!
The added bonus is, you still have the other half of the wreath for a second, easily assembled card!
