Creative Nugget: Nothing is as warm and inviting as a wreath on the door, and with Christmas just a few weeks away, I reached for this pretty Poinsettia Wreath just released by Our Daily Bread Designs this month. The front of the card was made by stitching an Antique Border Die to some of the pretty papers from the Christmas Paper Collection 2013 and Cherry Cobbler card stock. This panel was mounted on a Vintage Cream card base and a gold pen was used to make a border around the card. Both the wreath and the poinsettias were gold embossed on some of the other papers from the paper collection and cut with the matching Poinsettia Wreath Dies. The head of the cardinal on the DP was slit to allow the wreath mounted on a Spellbinders Scalloped Circle Die to be tucked under. The sentiment from the Gift of God set was gold embossed on vellum and a gold loopy bow was added to finish the card.
Here is the sketch that was used for the design:
