BSS MONDAY IDEA - Make a small wreath for your card

It's Monday, Time for another
Buffalo Stamps and Stuff Monday Idea.
Today's idea is to make a small wreath on your card.
This idea is especially fun for Fall and Winter.
To make the Pine Needle and snowflake wreath, I used
the Martha Stewart Pine Needle punch, and several Punches of
different size snowflakes.
I started with a 3 inch scalloped circle punch by Marvy. Stamped my image and colored with Copics.
Sponged edges. Stamp is J2-2600 by Art Gone Wild and is part of their
Topiary collection, LOVE IT!!!
I then punched a 3 1/2 inch scalloped circle, punch by Marvy.
Around the outer edge, I glued the Pine Needle branches that I punched from white card stock
in all different directions to cover the edge. I then glued different size snowflakes around
the circle in various spots over the Pine Needles.
Popped up the image and centered it over the wreath. I used Stickles and glitter on the
wreath for some sparkle. The large corner snowflake is a Cheery Lyn Designs (DL-179
snowflake #6. The ice border at the top is Martha Stewart. Sentiment is
Whipper Snapper Designs (IW860)
The red dots at the top are Twinkle Goosebumps by Queen & Co.
The inside insert. Snowflake by Memory Box, Bianca Snowflake (98193)
Martha Stewart border punch snowflakes.
Inside sentiment Northwoods Rubber Stamps stamped with Versamark
and embossed with white EP. Corner Punch snowflake and border punch, Martha Stewart.
The insert paper is red text weight paper with a gold fleck in it that I have had forever.
You can achieve this same effect with plain red paper and spritzing lightly with
Perfect Pearls, gold and water in a mini spritzer.
Making a small wreath for an image is fun and adds real interest to your card.
Would be fun with leaves, flowers, etc. Look at the small punches you have, I'm
sure something will inspire you to try this.
Thanks for stopping by today. Have a great Monday.  Until later.........
