Christmas Joy Wreath

Hello there. A new challenge has begun at The Holly and Ivy Christmas Challenge. The theme is – anything goes Christmas. Here is my card:

I used a whole bunch of Sue Wilson die sets for this card, which involved a lot of die cutting. I changed my mind several times during the process of making it.

The base is 8 inch square, with a layer of dark green mirri card and rose gold mirri card. I ‘gutted’ the hidden parts of these pieces and die cut some of the other elements – you can’t let such card go to waste can you?

Once the two base layers were stuck down, I cut a dark green mirri circle and stuck that down with 3D foam as I knew I wanted to layer some of the elements under the edge, so this made it easier.

The trailing ivy die cuts were slotted in underneath the edge of the circle, just to soften the harsh line, and the holly branch die cuts were stuck down around the edge of the circle – but on top of it.

I added some more holly die cuts to the top corners, and some mosaic leaves to the bottom corners – I just couldn’t stop die cutting and using the elements!

The word ‘Joy‘ was die cut, and adhered with very tiny 3D foam which I cut down myself.

It was really, really, difficult to capture the vivid dark green and the rose gold to it’s full beauty but here are a few more photos:

I hope you can come and join us for this challenge, and I look forward to seeing you in our gallery. xx
