Golden Wreath


Today we’re bringing you Day 2 of Sneaky Peek week at The Cat’s Pajamas and this set is one of my favourites of the week.  It’s called Wreath Kit.  It includes so many elements that can be used alone or mixed and matched to create wonderful wreaths for all seasons.  I think it’s going to be a real go-to set for me.  



For this wreath I chose to go really Clean and Simple using cream cardstock and Kraft ink.  First I used a circle die and with a pencil lightly sketched the circle so I’d have a bit of a guideline to go by, then I took one of the branches from the set and stamped it all around the circle.  Next I took the berries stamp and did it in VersaMark ink and then gold embossed, as well as embossing the sentiment. 

Then for a lovely finishing touch I used the new Easy Stitched Bow CutUp Die  (so great!), and added it to the image with some earthy twine behind it.  




Last but not least I added a wood veneer heart and some pretty pearls as well.  Here’s the new goodies I used today below.

Love your colors, Christine. I've never used kraft and cream together before, but with a touch of gold you made it stunning. It is a lot of fun playing along with the Cat Pack for this release.
