Christmas Wreath

Back in September I came across this post by the Crafty Elf where she gives a breakdown of how to make a stunning card using the Martha Stuart Punch to create a beautiful wreath on a card.  Here in South Africa, we don't get that particular brand of punches...believe me, I have looked and asked everywhere...

Today the shipment of Sizzix stuff hit the shelves at my local scrapbooking shop and I had my birthday money burning a hole in my pocket!  I bought the tattered pine cone die, holly branch die as well as the festive greenery and the Autumn gatherings strips. Oh and the movers and shapers mini reindeer and 25 set!

Thankfully my son was invited to a play date this afternoon after school, so I could have a play date with my desk and new dies!  I have had such a blast all afetnoon and evening!

Here is the card I have made using the conifer branch from the tattered pine cone and the smaller ones are from  festive greenery together with the pine cone off the same strip.  I discovered that the pinecone stamp from his Holday Wishes stamp set, fits the die rather well!  For the middle I used a scalopped circle from my eCraft cutter and the 25 from the movers and shapers set.

It was quite simple to put together and I have had such fun.  I will show you more tomorrow with the rest of the stuff I have been cutting and playing with.


  1. Wow, i love it. May i lift him. Very beautiful.

  2. Beautiful project and I am so glad you found an alternative to the MS punch. They are super expensive here so I also try to go another way.


Its always lovely to hear from you , so thanks for taking the time to leave me a comment.
