Die Cut Wreath 3 ways

You can use any of the new swirl or wreath die cuts here, Stampin' Up! has some really pretty ones that would work perfectly. I have always been a "one and done" kind of stamper. As soon as I get a new stamp set, die cut, or embossing folder I make one card and then move on to the next thing. Lately I've been trying to make at least two or three things before I move on so I don't feel so guilty about not getting enough value and use out of each purchase. I've always loved to see how I can make a seasonal product work for other occasions as well.

This pretty wreath is from Darice. The first uses Stampin' Up! glimmer paper. I cut one from this and added two more of lightweight cardboard to give it more stability and just added a little hook at the top to hang from the tree. Catches the light so nicely!

The second card uses SU Basic Black, Riding Hood Red, and Whisper White card stocks, little rhinestones to embellish and a holiday greeting from my general craft stash.

Not sure who made the designer paper on the third project (you could even use sheet music for this), Garden Green and Riding Hood red card stocks, mini pearls and sentiment from unknown. Sponged the edges in Tim Holtz "Old Paper" distress ink.
