Merry Christmas Greetings

Hi everyone! Hope you’ve had a great week and have something fun (and safe) planned for this weekend! I’m happy to be back on the Eyelet Outlet blog today with another awesome DT inspiration project! I CASE’d my own Autumn design from a few months back and created a pretty Christmas card featuring a wreath embellished with some gorgeous brads!

I cut a 5.5″ square top-folding card base along with red dotted and striped cardstock panels. I applied strips of skinny red and green washi tape from the Skinny Holiday Washi Tape pack along with a strip of Skinny Gold Washi Tape at the seam, and then adhered the panel to the card base. I die cut a circular frame on which to build the wreath. I punched a bunch of leaves and adhered them to the frame, and then added single leaves here and there to fill in blank spots. I embellished the wreath with several Poinsettia Brads and 6 mm Red Gold Edge Jewel Brads, and a red bow at the bottom. I stamped the sentiment across the bottom and then adhered the wreath to the card front.

I embellished the inside panel with a leftover strip of the red dotted paper used on the front along with a strip of the Skinny Gold Washi Tape, stamped the sentiment in green ink and layered the panel on red cardstock.

And one more peek… so loving how this turned out! I only wish the gold washi tape looked as pretty in the photos as it is in real life!

I'm definitely what one could consider a crafting junkie! I love making cards, 3-D projects (especially paper shoes, mini albums and gift bags), mixed media projects, altering items, as well as occasional beading and making jewelry! Fortunately, hubby is very supportive! Life is good! :D
