Big wreath, little wreath...

Hello lovely people,

It's Friday which means that my week of holibobs is almost over and also that it's time for me to share my Dies to Die For DT card...actually it's TWO cards today!

Every year I say I really don't need any new Christmas stuff but every year I am tempted into buying new stash, and my resolve was totally broken this year by the gorgeous Lawn Fawn release.

So, I have a few new bits to play with and started with the super cute mini wreath, and since I don't have a die cut door, I made my own with a stitched rectangle aperture die and score board :-)

This little die cuts the leaves all in one piece, and you could layer several of these up if you wanted a fuller wreath.  The bow is sooooo cute and the teeny berries are sweet...but a little fiddly to place!

I also got the larger wreath and have used the new Knit Picky papers for this card.

This wreath is a 'build it yourself' one and of course, that means the foliage will be useful all year round.  I cut some of the foliage to shorter lengths to add variation to the wreath.

I can see myself using that bow die a lot too, not just for Christmas, and it comes with another die option for the tails where they are in line with the loops of the bow.

If I've tempted you with any of the lovely supplies I've used then you can go straight to the individual products via the links at the end of my post or just pop over to Dies to Die For and have a little browse around!

Thanks for visiting and I really appreciate any comments that you leave,

Fab cards Kat! I love the door one and think that little pearl is a brilliant door knob. The wreath is gorgeous and layering it gives so much depth.

Styley gorgeousness!! Love the way you've created the front door with the wreath and the pink is so fun and nice for a change on festive cards. I have to confess though, that I have a little bit of a love affair going on with all things Scandi-chic, so the paper in that second one super appeals to me! Really gorgeous sentiment and lovely wreath design. Two gorgeous creations hun. Hugs, Wends xoxo
