I cannot hold off much longer...definitely going festive!
This week's FDD is Holly Berry Wreath.
An 8 piece die set.
The approximate measurements are:
Wreath: 4.30 x 4.50 in
Pinecones: 0.60 x 0.70 in
Pine Branches: 0.90 x 0.60 in
Berries: 0.35 x 0.35 in
Holly: 0.30 x 0.60 in
This is how it looks cut/embossed.
Definitely a die set that is asking to be stencilled/inked.
I cut/embossed the wreath with pale green card and inked through with
Bundled Sage Distress Ink.
Tipped the edges with some brown and die cut the pine cones, foliage and berries.
My card inspiration is straight from Spellbinders packaging - always a
good place to look!
Card front is black and I want to create an aperture with the wreath die.
Placed the wreath die inside a 6 x 6 Matting Basics die.
Once cut - place to one side.
Next - mount onto a black card base stamped grey square -
the 'Just For You' is a stamp from Dreamees.
Returning to the card front with aperture insert die cut wreath inside, secure at back
and then mount onto card front with foam tape.
Add in further die cut elements.
I chose to offset them a little to see a sort of shadow behind.
Optional: use a white gel pen to create dots around the wreath.
I got carried away with this step!
Holly Berry Wreath is available to purchase from your Spellbinders retailer now.
I think this will be a popular one.
Wishing you all a great weekend, I will be at PDA Card and Craft in
Nottingham, it is a Spellbinders Demo Day so if you live that way
please pop in and say hello - nattering begins at 10am.
Take care friends.
