Christmas Card of the Day




I am pleased with this one. I bought the Martha Stewart branch punch some time ago and have never used it, but this week a light went on and I thought of a Christmas wreath. So here it is. I cut a silhouette circle from George at 3" in green, then punched loads of little branches out of pattern paper that had bits of gold on it. I stuck them on the circle randomly with liquid glue and added gems and holly red stickles. I cut a 3" circle in cream from George, added a making memories 'NOEL' rub on, and stuck the wreath on that.


The papers, including the pretty scallop corners are Fa La La by Making Memories, bought from Target.

What a fabulous idea, I'm trying to branch out (no pun intended) from just making cards and you've inspired me to go and rummage through my punches now!
