Welcome to our second Blog Hop with the Stampers by the Dozen Stampin Up demonstrators. We are a group of 12 ladies from 4 different parts of the world.
This month the theme is trees, branches &/or leaves.
My project for this month is something I’ve been carrying around in my head for quite some time.
I used all 3 components of the theme – the tree is the felt embellishment, the branch is poking out from under the banner and the leaves speak for themselves.
For this project is used a number of leaf dies and almost all the green cardstock colours SU has, except the pastel greens. I cut or punched a heap of different shapes and then lay them into a wreath shape on a piece of Wood Textures Designer Series Paper, which is a 6 x 6 paper stack.
I added some bling and some felt embellishments, and finally a banner to hold the greeting. I am more than happy with how the project turned out – it’s almost better than what was floating around in my head.
A side note or two! – I have just noticed that the sequin trim is actually on back to front!! I hadn’t noticed that before and I don’t think it detracts from the project at all. I had aimed to use the Painted Harvest bundle for this project, but in the end only used the leaf punch as I couldn’t keep this wreath project off my mind!
