Welcome Wreath

I have another wreath card for you.  Honestly this is the card I have been trying to make since the day my mom sent us our wreath.  I kept trying to make the card square, but it really needed to be a rectangle double door.  :)  Once I figured it out it was super easy and QUICK to put together. 

I'm thinking about making a video to share some tips I discovered as I made this card.  Let me know if you are interested and I will do that for you guys.

The inside is blank for now, but I will probably be using one of the greeting stamps from the Holiday Mini catalog.  One thing that greatly helped with this card was following the sketch at Unscripted Sketches.  It's a new to me blog that I need to remember to check out more often!

I want to try this sketch again and have it looked like a wrapped present.  So many sketches and ideas, so little time.  :)
Here is a close-up of the wreath so you can see the detail.  The wreath is what I made 2+ weeks ago and each time I go to the craft room I have tried to pair it up with other papers, colors and/or sketches.  I wanted it to look like it was on a door.  Finally I just made a door.  LOL.  It works. 

Creative Blessings,
Heather North

P.S.  Check out yesterday's post to see another wreath card with a similar layout to this one, only square.

Now, this is clever creative genius at work here! Fabulous idea. The woodgrain embossing folder really does scream for a door, in my opinion at least. Thanks for sharing your creative talent with us this week at Unscripted Sketches :)

It certainly does look like a door with that EF and the special fold. I need more variety in my (card) life!
