Glitzy Foil Wreath

It is, Shirley, posting today.  I made a stocking wreath for our Night Before Christmas challenge this week.  I decided if I could make a mitten wreath then I could not make a stocking wreath, too.  I am glad I did because I think I like this even better than the mitten wreath. At least it did photograph better. The foil paper makes it tough to get a clear picture without any shine.

I really love the Impression Obsession Twig Wreath die  so I chose to use it again. I cut the wreath from gold paper and then I used the silver foil paper Textured Patterns 1 to cut extra twigs for the gold wreath. I used the Art Institute Clear Adhesive to adhere them to the gold wreath.

Next I used the Poppy Stamps Stocking Garland  die with red foil paper from the  Textured Patterns 1  paper, along with some white glitter paper to cut my stocking garland.  I adhered them to the wreath with the Art Institute Clear Adhesive. I layered the back of the wreath with Small Joy Foam Pads to pop the wreath up and adhere to the glittered Merry Christmas paper. I cut a piece of Textured Patterns 1 red foil paper  zor the next layer and followed with a gold shiny paper for the next layer.  I adhered all the layers to a white card base.

The foil paper has been one of my very favorite things to put on my Christmas cards this year.  I really like cards with bling and shine.

I am happy you came by to see my card today.  I hope you enjoyed it.
