Jolly Happy Christmas *Wreath*

Hello all you lovely Crafters. I've been feeling pretty rotten over the past couple of weeks with a flu like virus which I can't seem to shake off, so this Friday's blog has been pulled out of the bag (literally..!)

Using Christmas Tree shapes and scraps saved from a previous project already coloured using Promarkers a Christmas Wreath has been created using Sweet Dixie Jolly Happy Christmas Stamps. From Personal Impressions these stamps are from Lindsay Masons 2016 Christmas releases.

Using a 6" card I matt and layered using traditional gold and red card, a zig zag stitch has been sewn onto the red pearlized card to add some interest. I created a ring template by simply drawing round two glass jars of differing sizes making sure the central aperture was big enough to accommodate the sentiment. As you can see the dimensions of the wreath template are clearly written for you to see.

The wreath is made up of 12 Christmas Trees all cut around  2/3rds of the way up from the bottom. There is no need to measure this as there is almost a clear line for you 
to follow on the stamped image.

The 12 trees are layered around the ring template using foam pads, I added flat back pearls to embellish but you could be quite opulent with your embellishments. 
The completed Wreath ring is then applied centrally to the card using foam pads.

As you can see the effect is quite raised and I'm sure it would make a great Table Candle holder, unfortunately I didn't have the right size candle to try.

Thank you for sharing your time, have a wonderful weekend.
