Have you started working on your Christmas cards yet? Here is another idea using the new Entwined Circles from the Els van de Burgt Studio collection. I have used the circles to create a wreath for the Susan's Garden Notes Small Poinsettia. Behind the flower, I used Susan's Garden Notes Mistletoe, Garden Notes Whitepine Boughs & Pinecone and Els van de Burgt Studio Berry Branch die sets. The beautiful die cut sentiment is the A Way With Words - Noel.
Start with a 6×6 inch card. The background for the wreath is a piece of Els van de Burgt Studio Through The Lens – Wood card stock.
Die cut petals using Susan’s Garden Notes Small Poinsettia die. Shape the petals using Susan’s Flower Tool Kit. I used Susan’s Garden Prills in the center of the flower.
Use the Garden Notes Whitepine Boughs & Pinecone die set to die cut as many pine boughs as you want. I used two shades of green card stock – a darker green bough is on the bottom with a lighter green bough layered on top.
Use the Garden Notes Whitepine Boughs & Pinecone die set to die cut pieces for four pinecones. Use Susan’s Garden Notes Mistletoe die set to die cut mistletoe to layer behind the poinsettia.
Use Els van de Burgt Studio Berry Branch to die cut two branches out of green card stock. You may add Wedding Dress Pico Embellisher irRESISTible to shape the berries, or use white punched circles. I used a fine line marker to add a black dot to the ends of the berries.
Use Els van de Burgt Studio largest Entwined Circle die to die cut four brown circles. Attached the circles to the Wood cardstock to form a wreath.
Assemble all the die cut pine boughs, mistletoe and berry branches on the lower left corner of the wreath. Add the Small Poinsettia and the pine cones.
Use the A Way With Words – Noel die to cut the sentiment out of Gold Shimmer Sheetz. Attach it inside the wreath as shown.
