Merry Christmas

Merry Christmas wishes using non-traditional colours.

I have added thin foam dots randomly around each wreath layer, colouring each one using Copic markers to match the piece on top, so that they are nearly invisible under the curled leaves.
I die cut the bow and popped it in place using a 1/4" high foam dot, curling, popping & adhering the tails of the bow to make it more secure.

  1. And a very Merry Christmas to you-love this card! It's so happy & I really like the pink & red! What die did you use for the bow-it's lovely!

    1. Thank You Beth :)
      The bow is from the "Take A Bow" set of dies from Winnie & Walter I highly recommend these dies as it has several different bows and, like all W&W products, they are wonderful quality too.
