Christmas wreath with holly

Ingrid Peters
Hello dear readers!
On the first day of December, and on the first day of the Advent Calender, I may show you a tutorial. Yes! Every day one of the dt girls will open a window of the Advent Calender, but the tutorials will also continue :-) So much exciting things for you to find here this month... I hope you will all enjoy them.
My card has no image but one of the Whiff of Joy dies in the picture, the holly die. I will show you with photo's how I created this card.
I cut a card base of 10,5x15 cm and my papers from Echo Park "This and That" and placed a piece of cardstock upon it. I embossed this cardstock with a Cuttlebug embossing folder and then inked the higher areas to let them more pop out.
I made 7 open circles using 2 circle Nestabillities. You can keep the dies in place with a post-it. Glue all the circles together so it will become thicker. Wrap the wreath with a long piece of bakers twine and glue the end on the back. For the ornament behind the wreath on my card I used a Spellbinders tag and cut out the middle, this way it became narrower.
I used the Holly die to decorate the wreath with leaves.
Just a quick way to create a Christmas card with a 3D element on it.
Hope to see you again here, or on my own blog.
O, before I forgot... did you already looked through today's Advent Calender window? To see on who's blog the window has opened today, please read the post below.
