Wondrous Wreath - first of several projects

I love this set and I'm so happy it's in the annual catalog.  If you recognize it, then you might have been at my spring class where we used the Circle of Spring set with the same die set.  

Simple pretty card... you stamp the wreath (it's a 3 step stamp so the leaves are different colors) and then add the red holly dots. There's a die to make it easy to cut out. Then add the bow and hanger and the left strip of plaid paper.  I think the strip of plaid from the Warmth and Cheer paper really makes it pop. I think for the next card I'll use the same paper for the wreath hanger.  So quick and simple but I think it has a wow factor.   I'll post an instruction sheet later this week.

And then... while you are getting comfortable with the 3 step stamp, make 3 wreaths.  Cut the 2nd wreath and overlap a bit so it sticks up, then cut the last wreath and overlap it more.  Stack all 3 wreaths on a 2" circle of Garden Green, add a flickering tea light (with some washi tape around the edge to make it match) and it's a cute table decoration.  Super easy and fast.  

Happy crafting, MaryKate
