Welcome, this month we are featuring the amazing Stampin' Up! "Bundles". What an incredible product combination they are - so easy, and so versatile.
I had my eye on the Wonderful Wondrous Wreath bundle from the moment I saw it in the catalogue when I joined, after all who can say no to saving 15% when you purchase Bundled items; so when our theme for this month was announced I had the perfect reason to put my early Christmas order in!
I was pleasantly surprised at how easy inspiration came once I opened up my stamp set and framelits dies.
The Wondrous Wreath stamp set is photopolymer, which makes it so easy to layer colours and images, cutting is so simple to by using the framelits - I found it is easier to cut the inner part of the wreath first, then it was easier to align the stamp, then cut the outer edge of the wreath.
I've used traditional Christmas greens and red, I also used my "Simply Scored " (another new toy this order) to score around the edges of the Very Vanilla layer to give a little bit more dimension than just the layering of the Old Olive and Cherry Cobbler cardstock. I added a some bling to the berries/cherries.
A couple of years ago a did a flip card design for a card for my daughter, the wreath isn't quite symmetrical, so this is different to a standard flip card design, it doesn't really flip but I think it is a cute variation on a standard "flat" card. I also decided to heat emboss the 2nd layer on the wreath for a different effect.
Now to try something a little different, Pool Party and Bermuda Bay for that frosty Christmas theme, with silver heat embossed berries. I cut the circle with framelits, this did however become a challenge as to cut 3 layers of cardstock did not play out as I hoped, cutting separately and lining up the cuts for each layer was not the easiest, so I ended up cutting the Pool Party layer the next size up so it was easier to align.
I hope you have gained some inspiration from what I have been able to do with the Wonderful Wondrous Wreath bundle.
