Instructions so you can create this project too:

1. Card size is 4 3/4 x 6”. Cut cream cardstock to 9 1/2 x 6, score at 4 3/4”. Cut plaid paper from sheet 11A of paper collection, to 4 3/8 x 5 5/8”, then yellow paper from sheet 10A, to 4 3/16 x 5 3/8”. Adhere together, then diecut octagon opening using small plain die from HCD1-7369. Stamp sentiment using Light House ink. Use this as a template to mark on your cream card front where you want to diecut it, die cut using same octagon die, then fold card base. Diecut intricate center from same die set onto cream cardstock and adhere on the inside of card. Die cut four Octagon frames using the 5th & 6th largest dies from HCD-7367 Simple Centerpiece die set, adhere these together for a thicker frame. Apply a light touch of sepia ink onto the edges, then apply Rajni Chawla’s Crystal Clear onto frame.

2. Using the HCD1-7375 Seasonal wreath die, diecut the wreath base using the soft green paper from sheet 10A of paper collection and then a second one using the leafy background panel from the same sheet. Layer these two together using foam dots with the soft green base as your top layer. Next, diecut the leafy holly layer from same die set using dark green paper. Layer this onto wreath base using foam adhesive. Die cut the small bow from kraft paper, and the thin bow accent using the Luxe Gold cardstock, adhere together and adhere this onto wreath using a thick foam dot. Finally, from same die set, diecut 2 sets of the pine accents using Luxe Gold cardstock.

3. Stamp the images onto white cardstock. From HCPC-3967 Winter wreath accents, stamp 2 sets of the holly leaves and 2 sets of the pine boughs using Library Green ink. Stamp the berry sprig and berry cluster using sepia ink, x3. From HCPC-3966 Autumn Wreath Accents, stamp the owl in sepia ink as well. Diecut all images.

4. Use the following inks to color the images. For the holly leaves use a combination of Vivid Chartreuse, Leaf Green and Olive inks. Use Olive and Library Green for the pine boughs. Color two of each of the berries using Light House ink, and the remaining berry set in Sunflower ink. For the owls you’ll want to apply Sepia and a soft touch of Sunflower ink. Layer the images on wreath base. Adhere the owls on the back side of wreath with foam adhesive.
