Merry Christmas Wreath

Hello My Crafty Blog Friends and Visitors

I hope you had a great weekend and are ready for the week ahead. We found out on Saturday that our in-laws want to spend Christmas Day with us after all. This means that our plans have changed completely. I have written lists of everything and there is a lot to sort out. We will get it all done I am sure.

I have been looking back through my files for cards that I haven't shared yet and I came across this one.

I made this card with the free gift that came with issue 166 of Papercraft Essentials magazine. It was from the Winter Wonderland Collection from Crafter's Companion there were three dies and a 6" x 6" embossing folders. I used the embossing folder on the gold mat and the white centre. The wreath was cut with the branch die in two shades of green. I added dots of glue and some glitter to make it look frosty. 

The sentiment comes with its own mat which means that it shows up nicely. 

I added a tartan bow. 

This was a lovely free gift and I am sure I will be using it all again next year.

Have a great day

I would like to enter the following challenges:
