Fall Wreath

Hello, it's Diana today! I love fall! Sweaters, school starting, and of course the beautiful foliage. One of my favorite things to do on cards is to make a wreath. I first used all the colors from this week's Classy Cards 'n Such inspiration photo on my watercolor paper. 

When I saw the Impression Obsession Small Leaf Set, I knew I would make a wreath with it.

I swiped some Tim Holtz Antique Bronze distressed stain over my dried paper to give the leaves a little extra shimmer.  This is a great way to make your own designer paper when you want a particular set of colors.

I used my Spellbinders A2 Matting Basics A to cut out my bottom layer and the small leaf dies for my wreath.  I used about 6 sets to make my wreath.  I made a circle template with some circle punches and then glued my leaves on a sheet I had embossed with a brick embossing folder. You could use the M-Bossabilities Bricks and Bark embossing folder.

I added a sentiment from ODBD Ornate Frame Sentiments with Sparkle 'n Sprinkle Copper embossing powder on Vellum.  To make the sentiment pop a little more, I added a layer behind the Vellum from some scraps and adhered it all by sewing along the edge of the banner.

Thank you for looking and hope you get a chance to play along!
