Convention 2014 - Awesome Christmas Cards Swap

I love Christmas time and Christmas cards so I always look for a swap like this to help with great ideas!

I saw something similar to this online and realized how easy it would be to use Work of Art to make a wreath!  so I set to work.  Here is the finished product.

First punch out a 1-3/8" circle from some scrap cardstock.

I adhered it to my base with some removable adhesive.

This is the stamp from the Work of Art set I used.  I also used the new Mossy Meadow as by green.  Love it!

I then began repeatedly stamping the image in a ring.  The circle masks the center.

Here is what it looked like when I was done.

Remove the circle and the glue.

I added Rhinestones that I had colored with the Cherry Cobbler Blendabilities for berries.  They came out great!

I layered it with Cherry Cobbler and Mossy Meadow and added a saying.

I had fun with the bow.  I just looped a piece of 1/8" Silver Ribbon three times back and forth, leaving a long end on each side.  I then tied a small piece around the middle to hold it in place.
