Wreath Christmas Card


Earlier this year I bought my Cricut Gypsy and while setting it up downloading from Provo Craft, I received some free files. One of these was Christmas. I love designing this year's holiday cards using the many images on this wonderful free file. Today I'll show you how I designed a simple wreath card.
First cut a green wreath and a red bow. I took a green brush marker and added scalloped lines to represent holly leaves. 
 A hole punch is great for Christmas ornaments and red berries were added with a red fine point marker.



 
A while gelly roll medium tip marker works well to add snow to the wreath.
Place the finished wreath on foam dots for depth on a brick printed paper.
I added white card stock paper embossed with the divine swirl Cuttlebug folder as snow (rip the edge for snow detail) against the brick wall. 
 
Adhere to the front of a white card and you have a great looking holiday card! Have a creative day!

Cute! I love making my own handmade cards too! It is so fun giving something personalized and I think it means a lot.
