8x8 Christmas wreath card

Good morning everyone, I hope you are all well or getting there...hugs
At our Friday evening crafty get together I saw one of my friends making a Christmas wreath and decided that it was time I had a try. This is the result, I hope you like it :o)


It took forever to make the wreath but I am happy with it. It is 6" across and seems to sit nicely within the embossed frame!
The card is from a Papermania pack . 8x8 is the only size that I buy pre-scored, I usually make my own!
For the wreath, I cut a circle from plain white card using the two largest of my nestie circles.
Then comes the tedious bit, punching all the leaves! Pine type leaves cut with McGill punch and holly leave with a Personal Impressions punch. Berries are whit pearls coloured with copic pen :o)

It's gorgeous and I can just imagine your little sore fingers and/or palm punching all the elements, but it is stunning at the end result. The embossed frame is gorgeous too and you are right...perfect for your wreath!

Jackie, this is absolutely stunning! So much patience to do all those little leaves branches and berries. SUPER job! Sorry I haven't been by - life is hectic, you know how that goes. I was so HAPPY to read that Stephen has made such remarkable progress!!! So happy for him and all of you. Also that your daughter is back to work and things are going well for her. I know it's been a very trying time for you, and I hope that things will settle out now. You take care my friend, I send hugs and many good wishes for a very Merry Christmas and a prosperous and healthy New Year! xx Joanne
