The colors for this first card came from the Print and Cut wreath from Silhouette (the colors are off slightly, seems that this magenta color is a difficult one to get right). I printed out the wreath on white cardstock and then added Glossy Accents to the baubles for some extra dimension.
This card could be made without having the a Silhouette. Pick out several fun colors of cardstock and go crazy punching out leaves or branches. Shape into a wreath, add circle punch-outs, layer on coordinating papers, and your card is finished.
I really like the Sizzix Dotted Flower Rings I used for the background , so prepare to see it several other places. Kinda reminds me of the texture of a sea creature.

The die cuts for this card were done with my Silhouette, but it could just as easily be done with snowflake stamps, white ink and white embossing powder. Stamp and emboss the snowflakes on dark cardstock, layer onto a white piece of cardstock,and cut the edges with a stamp-edged scissors. Tie a ribbon around the piece and mount it on a light color card . Add a snowflake embellishment and some pink brads.

Here is another snowflake card, this time in browns, pinks and mint green to match the paper I used. I used a (nontraditional) ledger background stamp and colored the snowflake shaped rhinestone in the middle of the embellishment with a brown Sharpie. I ran the green snowflake through my Xyron machine and added glitter to the sticky side. A much easier way to apply glitter!

I really liked this brown Print and Cut wreath- I think because of all the funky colors. I don’t think of brown as being a christmas color but it worked for me here.

That’s all for today. Next time I will show you the cards I made using a new stamp I purchased at Michael’s recently.
