30 Minute Wreath

Hello, Diane here with you today on the Classy Cards 'n Such blog.

Today I have a fast and easy card to share with you, though it looks as if you spent hours creating it!!  It took me about 30 minutes to create!

I first embossed my white card stock, then drew a light circle on so I would have a starting point for my wreath.  I had a button jar sitting on my table, so I just traced the lid from that.

I used the Cheery Lynn Designs Wreath Strip to cut my twig branches. I cut 6 strips, you get three large branches and four small, all from one die cut.

Each twig branch has a little piece on the end to connect one to the other with a brad if you want, but for this design, I snipped each off.  It only took a couple of minutes to do that.  I placed all the bigger branches on first, then filling in with the smaller ones.

To adhere the branches, I put some Art Institute Dries Clear Adhesive on my mat and dipped the ends only of the branches in it.

I know it does not show in the picture, but I painted Stickles here and there to give a bit of sparkle to the wreath.

I added a bow and left my wreath as is, but you could decorate it any way you want by adding either a few
Pearls or Rhinestones to change the look.

Hope you have enjoyed my quick project for today, and try one yourself. See you soon!!

So festive looking on your card! Thanks Diane!

Your wreath is lovely, and the little bits of Stickles add so much depth to it! I love that Cheery Lynn Wreath Strip die. It sure beats punching out the leaves one at a time!
