For two weeks the Penny Black DT is showcasing projects on the blog using the Christmas dies from its latest release.
I start the second week with this card:
I used Holly Berries (51-019) and Dancing Leaves (51-016) to create this rustic looking wreath. I colored cardstock in 2 different shades of green using Distress Inks. I ran the dies several times to have enough to create the leaves and branches of the wreath. I then cut the dies apart using what I thought was appropriate for the wreath. For the leaves and branches cut from Holly Berries, I added small pearls on the berries and colored each with a red Copic marker. Once I finished the prepwork, I cut a paper ring in the same color I used to die cut Dancing Leaves. I used the ring as my base for the wreath. I used a gluestick to secure the first layer of leaves/branches. Once that I was done, I added more leaves until I was satisfied. Once completed, I added liquid glue to secure all the leaves and branches. For a more festive look, I used the bow from Ornately (40-252). I added red tinsel embossing powder and fussy cut the image. To keep to the rustic theme, I thought I’d use corrugated paper as my panel. The sentiment is from clear set, Hello Winter (30-141).
Hope you’ve been enjoying all the creations from DT. The blog has a few more to showcase this week. Go and check it out!
