Project Details

  • The A2 card base and sentiment are made from Thick Very Vanilla Cardstock.
  • The top 4-1/4″ x 5-1/2″ layer is from the Wood Textures Designer Series Paper. If you’d like to step it up like I did, brayer* Gray Granite and Early Espresso ink to the Pinewood Planks Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder and run it through the Big Shot machine. Wood-grain look AND texture! *Video tutorial with details HERE; or photo tutorial is HERE.
  • Optional, but helpful: Cut a large circle base from Merry Merlot Cardstock using the Layering Circles Framelit Dies (photo below)…

  • Apply SNAIL adhesive on one side of the base and start applying the Merry Merlot and Cajon Craze Leaves, alternating them as you go around. For the Sprig’s, apply a little SNAIL to the back, bottom part and tuck the Copper Foil in around the wreath. Add Stampin’ Dimensionals to the back.
  • Tie a bow using Merry Merlot and Copper Reversible Ribbon and apply with Glue Dots.
