CAS White and Gold Wreath Card

I stuck down the sentiment top and bottom of the circle aperture and that is the card finished. I quick and simple one to do.

 For this card I am using the Impression Obsession Twig Wreath die set but instead of using colour like I did last year, I am going to keep the card very clean and simple and only use white and gold.

I got my card ready, by folding a piece of A4 card in half and then cutting the length to be the same size as the width, which is about 6" x 6" or 155mm x 155mm.

I then cut out a card panel the same size and cut a circle aperture with an inside outside stitched die, as I want the stitching to be around the outside of the aperture I cut, and also the same circle out of a piece of craft foam.

I cut out 3 of the twig wreaths and glue them together so that they make a more substantial die cut that will have a little more dimension that a single die cut. While I was doing the cutting I cut out some gold twigs and holly leaves from the twig wreath die set and also a sentiment form an old poppy Stamp die set (folk merry Christmas) out of the same gold mirror card.  

Now it is a simple matter of putting the card together.  I mounted my card panel onto the craft foam and then onto my card base.  I stuck down the white twig wreath.  I then couldn't decide if I wanted to put the twigs as well as the holly leaves, but ended up deciding on the holly leaves only, as I wanted the clean and simple look, so I didn't want it to be cluttered looking.  Less is more!

I have a video of making the card.
