Avery Elle October AEI♥U Challenge + Festive Friday #20 + Simon Says Stamp

When I first saw the sketch for the October AEI♥U Challenge at Avery Elle I saw the circle panel as a wreath and couldn't shake that idea.



My original plan was to use the stamps from AE's Rounded Diamonds set to stamp a wreath, but  I started playing with the matching dies. The more I played, the more I liked the idea of using patterned paper die cuts and before you know it I had created the wreath on this card.




The diamond die cuts were attached to a die cut ring base. I adhered all the green ones first to get the spacing even and fit the holly paper ones in between them. The wreath is popped up on the card base with foam adhesive.

A sheer red ribbon bow and sentiment from Oh Happy Day finish off this clean & simple card.




I am also linking this card to the Festive Friday Challenge #20: Wreath and the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Blog Challenge where Anything Goes this week.
