52 Christmas Card Throwdown Theme ~ Wreaths!

Good Morning!  Here's my card for this week's 52 Christmas Card Throwdown blog challenge.  This week is a theme challenge and the theme is wreaths.  I had a few ideas in mind for my card this week and I ended up making a ribbon wreath card.  I figured it might be easier to post a video on how I made my wreath so if you have a moment check out my very first video posted below.

I ended up making three of these wreath cards and they are all basically the same, but the colors are different.  I embossed my background using the petals a plenty embossing folder and my sentiment is from a retired SU stamp set called Christmas Greetings.  Below is a close up photo of my wreath.

And here is my very first video.  I was a bit nervous so I hope you like it!  In my video I showed how to make the wreath (which I learned from this video), and I showed you how I embossed my background, and how to use a stamp-a-ma-jig.

An excellent video Patty! Your narration -- just as if we were in the room with you -- really makes it! No one would ever know it was your first one! I do have a question though -- how did you adhere the bells and brads? I love these for my sidelines!

WHAT A LOVELY CARD and a very different wreath Patty. I've never seen one like it before.
Your video is concise and easy to understand- so I'll give it a go. Thanks for sharing.

Those are super cute!!!

Patty Gorka said...

Mary- I couldn't reply to you privately so I hope that you will see my message here for you.

You asked me how did I adhere the bells and brads.

The bells I placed on my wreath using glue dots and the brads I simply poked through the ribbon wreath and then I opened the prongs on the back side to hold them in place- like you normally would use them.

Hope that helps. If you have any more questions feel free to send me an email- pebbles4@ptd.net
