Wreath making with Bits and Pieces

It has been a little bit since we have done some Wreath making with Bits and Pieces container. With so many pretties I could not just throw them away!! I am a hoarder of all the specialty papers. Although the Brushed Metallic foil was something that went into the mini in July. What I originally cut them for had to do with the new Annual catalog. I am super excited now … This wreath was on my mind since I cut them out.

Here is the A2 version or the 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 sized one. This one uses the Artistic Dies a few of the full leaf die cuts. However this is cut to create smaller pieces so that it can be easier formed into that “circle” wreath look.

Are you wondering about that sentiment.

My friend, Lin came over so that I could see how easy it was to get all the sentiments lined up. I will say that if you us the Stamparatus it really was pretty easy. The biggest thing was to let the stamp sit for a minute to be sure that it “squares up”. If you do a quick attach to your large block or acrylic piece on your Stamparatus, it might not.

Here is the 5 x 5 version. Note that I smudged or dirtied up the edges of the layer piece. Why?? Well because then you can see the layer easier. With both the cardbase and layer being Blackberry Bliss, it also helped to pull the sentiment color together.

You bet that I left those leaves loose. Why not?? It will fit inside the envelope for a 5 x 5 card. They will spring back once opened. Needing room to write on this inside I left it simple. Plus there really is not a similar stamp to that leaf die. The one in Artistically Inked bundle is solid. There are no shapes included in the Many Happenings stamp set.
