Two Holly Berry Happiness Wreath Cards with tips.

Hello there,
Today I used Holly Berry Happiness to make a duo of wreath cards. Now, we made these cards at my All Day Christmas Class but I have put off blogging these cards as I was going to make a video tutorial but I have simply run out of time and well, it's a bit late now really! So, instead I'll talk you through my tips for making this card as I go!
Here are both the cards together to start today, one with a white base and one with a crumb cake base...
 The crumb cake version gives a more rustic effect and this paper is just £4.50 right now in the Year End Closeout for 48 sheets! Love it!
 TIP 1: To create this wreath I used the second largest circles thinlits die as a guide, simply draw around the inside of the die using a pencil.
Remember these brilliant, closely layered circle dies are on offer at just £25.60 'till 3rd January!!
 I used the holly leaf outline stamp first to stamp around the circle.
TIP 2: Start at the top and work your way around the circle, this makes positioning the second, solid leaves stamp much easier.
 TIP 3: See here I added a tiny mark with a sharpie at each end so it was easier to position on the pencil line.
And the white version, this gives a crisper look, I think...
 Sentiment is Tin of Tags, heat embossed in gold fora little extra pizzazz!
 And both together to finish today.
Well, that's all from me for today, I'll be back soon with another Christmas card, we are  getting down to the last few now that I have left to share :-)

'till then, thanks for looking!
