MCT October Sneak Peek #2


I'm back with another My Creative Time sneak peek!  Today I made a card using the new Boughs of Holly set.  This is an adorable set with a variety of holly leaf and pine bough stamps and dies, word dies, and lots of adorable sentiments like the one I used here!


To make my wreath, I began by creating a wreath form by using two of the circle dies from Bunch of Fun Circle Dies.  I took a picture of the back of the wreath so you could see how that looks.  If you wanted to make an ornament, you could continue gluing leaves onto this side too!


I used the smallest of the embossed holly leaf dies to make lots of leaves to cover my wreath form, and then I die cut a few berries and added them.  I made the bow with the Fun Size Scallop Stitched Bow Die.  I love how it was the perfect size for my little wreath!


My sentiment continues on the inside of the card!
