A Wreath for Merry Monday

Hello.  How's your Christmas stash coming?

I raided my Christmas UFO box and found parts for this card.

Yep, all the elements were in that box of goodies.

I thought they'd go together well.

I'm not sure where the wreath came from because I don't think I own,
or have ever owned that stamp.

It's white embossed on Crumb Cake cardstock and fussy cut.

The background is little snowflakes stamped and embossed on Crumb Cake cardstock
and die cut with stitched rectangles.  I had kept both parts so I inlaid
the smaller one into the frame.

The die cut joy was bouncing around in the box too so I 
adhered it to the wreath for some color.

I think it took all of 5 minutes to put it together.

Going through the UFO box took lots longer!
I'm glad to have lightened the load in there.

This week, my friend Linda is hosting

My entry last week was the winner!
Thanks Kathy!

and since I inlaid the rectangle die, I'll add this to the gallery at
I used stamping, inlaid die cuts and heat embossing.

Thanks for the visit and special thanks for your comments.

These half finished pieces go together beautifully here Bonnie. The stitched rectangular frame with the inlaid stitched rectangle look great together and the embossed stars in the background look really pretty. The white embossed wreath works well with the red die cut sentiment over the top too as it adds a great pop of colour. x

Linda said...

Cool wreath with the JOY, Bonnie, and I love the inlaid frames too! How fun that you found all the parts and could combine them this way - love when that happens!!

This is a beautiful card. I've never seen that wreath and it is a beauty and looks fantastic embossed on kraft cardstock. Adding the teeny snowflakes made it a fun look. Thank you for the sweet email.

Beautiful wreath card. Love all the details. It is great that all the lovely pieces were in your UFO box and the card came together so quickly. Great ideas.

JosieD said...

What a great looking card--love the combo of white, crumb cake and red on the naturals base. Kinda a rustic feel to it. And all from UFO box -- way to go!

I'm loving your QACAS wreath card, Bonnie! There is such warmth in a kraft and red combination which I love and the pop of white from the pretty wreath makes it even better!! Hugs, Darnell

Susan said...

Love the colour combination and design of this card! Great way to UFO pieces together!

Nstiz said...

I just love nontraditional Christmas colors! The use of neutrals makes your die cut stand out so beautifully! What a wonderful and novel card, Bonnie!

Bobby said...

I wish I had something laying around to make a card like this. I spent all day Thursday working on a card for MM and it ended up in the recycle bin. This one came together beautifully, Bonnie.

Christine Alexander said...

Kraft and red are some of my favorite Christmas colours, great wreath and the perfect pop of colour with the red,

My Card Attic: Hazel said...

LOVE this idea Bonnie! I too have a box of Christmas bits and pieces, die cuts, stamped images sentiments etc., nothing that would add up to a beauty like this though! I really ought to make a start on this years Christmas cards too, I always leave it till the last minute and then it's one mad dash! Have a lovely day/evening! Luv n’ Hugs. Hazel xx

Brenda said...

Wow, all your UFO's came together perfectly on this card! I love it! Love that wreath too, funny you don't know where it came from but glad you had it! Love the stitched dies inlaid like with the snowflakes, so pretty on the crumb cake! The pop of red with the joy and "berries" just makes everything pop! Love, love, love! Hugs, Brenda
