Joy Holiday Wreath Card

Today's project has been created using the Bow Builder Punch.  Something a little different to than your average bow, right?  If you love punch art then you will love this project.

Joy Holiday Wreath Card

I've created my cardbase using Real Red cardstock, cut at 11 1/2" x 5 3/4" and scored at 5 3/4" mark to create a 5 3/4" x 5 3/4" card base.  I've matted the card using vellum designer paper from the Holiday catalgoue, overlayed onto Whisper White Cardstock.  Tip: add the adhesve to the center of the vellum where your wreath will be so you can't see the adhesive show through.

I've cut a Whisper White Circle usign 2 1/2" circle punch, and a Mossy Meadow Circle using my 4 smallest circle framelit.  Center and stick these together and then stick to the center of your card front.

Using the Builder punch cut out multiple tales from both Mossy Meadow and Wild Wisabi Carstock.  Adhere the Wild Wasabi tails to your card around the circle as shown in the picture below


Joy holiday Wreath

I've added my greeting "Joy" by cutting the word JOY from Alphabet thinlits, and silver glimmer paper.  Next add your layer of Wild Wasbi Bow tails, but first cut the ends off to you only have the tail.  stick these along the outer edge of the Whisper White Circle. Add Real Red Candy Dots to fill in the gaps and top with a complete bow using the bow builder punch.
