Mistletoe & Holly Wreaths.
To cut out the motif, I used the largest die from my Framelits Circles die set.
With the Framelits,they cut right at the edge of the die, so to get a white matting layer, I just drew lightly around the outside of the die with a pencil, then cut out with scissors.
After matting the black image sheet onto the white matt layer, I added a few half pearls as the mistletoe berries.
The greeting is another peel-off, trimmed from a Merry Christmas border, as the space in the centre of the wreath is much smaller than on the Holly wreath.
The whole thing was added onto a square card base.
The gold Holly wreath was created exactly the same way, adding some small red acrylic gems to form the berries. Another small peel off greeting- I'm determined I'm going to get them used up, lol.
For the other wreaths I'd made, I returned to a square shape.
This one was done on a glossy cardstock, and it's not the easiest thing to work with when using stencil paste. Again, a few berries from acrylic gems and a greeting in the centre.
Here, matted onto white, then black cardstock, and added to a white card base. This time the greeting is also layered using the same card combination,and mounted using foam pads, below the image.
Back to the Mistletoe wreath, and a return to the square format.
