Country Christmas Wreath

Hello Blogger Friends! Thanks for taking the time to stop and visit with The Charmed Life Blog today.
First, I would like to extend my prayers to the people that have been affected by Hurricane Florence. Watching all the television coverage of the storm is so incredible of what's happening in the Carolina's. Until physical help can come and assist, I believe that prayer is the best option right now.
My card today is one that I created for my weekly DT post on the CottageCutz Blog. I used the new Grapevine Wreath w/Bird die on my card.
Used a sketch that I found on Pinterest for the card layout.  This sketch gave all the measurements so it was easy to do all the cutting. I subbed the wreath image for the oval on the sketch.
The background gingham paper is a pattern from BoBunny. I thought it just added to the country look of my card. For the small center rectangle on the card, I used wide white ribbon (1.5") and then layered red ribbon (5/8") over that.
 The corner flourishes are part of the Country Merry Christmas Phrase.
When I attached the wreath, I used Ranger multi matte medium sparingly. I didn't want it to be completely attached. I like the look of it being slightly lifted off the ribbon.
That's my card for today. Hope you have a great weekend and until next time...…..God bless.

  1. Beautiful card. Love this pretty wreath and gorgeous gingham. Thanks for joining us at Winter Wonderland Pat K xx

  2. That's a gorgeous die, and I love how you paired it with the gingham check paper. It has such a homey feel to it, like the gingham is a summer tablecloth and the bird is nearby serenading.
