I am enjoying my Festive Flurry Framelits and new single stamp from Stampin’ Up!, Christmas Star. It’s after Halloween and everywhere I go I am hearing Christmas music so I bet you are at least thinking about your holiday decorating! I saw this color combination in the Color Coach and decided it would be a fresh twist on a holiday wreath. I went with the Cherry Cobbler Grosgrain Ribbon, wrapping it around a wooden wreath. It really is the perfect holiday ribbon! Then, I stamped four Christmas Stars in Tempting Turquoise and scored them, which gave them a really nice 3-D effect. The large Flurry Snowflake was stamped and cut out with the framelit. The second and third snowflake framelits were fit together and run through the Big Shot on Silver Glitter paper. Brights Glitter Brads were used on the centers of the large snowflake and stars for a little added glitz. The bow and holiday stems were the final touch for the wreath. This wreath came together so easily! You could definitely have it done in no time at all.
Just one more detail that you might like to know: The snowflake was heat embossed with Tempting Turquoise embossing powder then heated again with the heat gun and sprinkled with Iridescent Ice so that it would have a nice sparkle. I took a photo of it after I cut it with the framelit:
