A Christmas Wreath


Lovely to be asked to be Guest Designer on Crafting By Design this month.
 Decided to go all Christmassy with my new papers from Craftwork cards. Couldn't wait to play with them such gorgeous Christmassy colours and designs. I bought the complete set and got the cracker template cards free.




 I used Kraft card and Cream Linen card for the basic design. Cut the circles using Spellbinders large dies then embossed with A4 embossing folder for texture. Inked the edges with TH distress inks then started to layer up with TH Poinsettia die, Memorybox medium and small Rose dies, inked all the edges and finished off with Frosted Stickles. The Ivy leaf flourish is from Joanna Sheen. Finished off with a few pearls and Gingham bow. The centre I used Kraft card and one of the Sentiment pieces from the Paperpad. The large bow at the Top comes from a pad full of different patterned papers and sizes that comes with the collection, bows on everything this year lol!
Finished with a Gingham ribbon to hand for everyone to see. Hope you Like.


Want different sized Roses! Just roll them tighter.
Berries from online stores


Okay seem to have got my timing wrong, nothing new there then!
