Classic Christmas Wreath - Fab Friday 76 - Stampin' Up! Holly Jolly Greetings

Here we are back again at another Fab Friday Challenge!  If this doesn't get your creative juice going for your weekend stamping projects I don't know what will!

This time around we have a great sketch. You can't get more classic than a circle and a banner.

My card idea came to me pretty quickly then I just had to sit down and punch out a bunch of branches.

I made a ring use 2 different sizes of circle framelits and then adhered my branches around the ring, layering and layering until the ring was covered.  The bird builder punch makes pretty quick work of the greenery.

The small stars sprinkled across the card front are stamped in white craft ink.  White craft ink is also sponged along the edges of the Kraft cardstock.

I layered a Cherry Cobbler ribbon banner across the front.  This ribbon is retired but any of our wider ribbons would be a great substitution.  I left the ends hanging out from the sides of the card just to do something a bit differently.

  The wreath is popped up on dimensionals and has some small pearls clustered around to look a bit like mistletoe berries. The 'peace' was cut out of the old silver Glimmer paper using the Christmas Greetings thinlet set.  I cut some itty bitty pieces of dimensionals to attach the peace to the wreath.

  The final detail are the little silver glimmer paper stars that were punched with the Stars border punch.

  I hope you'll head over to Fab Friday to see the rest of the goodies the Design Team has dreamed up and then play along with your own work of art!

  Thanks for looking!  Did you stamp today?
