Instructions: Click here to view a larger photo of this project. Take scrap paper and cut out a circle using a scissors or electronic die cutting machine. Cut it the size you want your wreath to be. Lay this circle template under your 12x12 clear cardstock, creating a template so you can see where to stamp your wreath, this will later be discarded. Take the Pine Branch from the Snowy Pine Village and stamp it on top of the clear cardstock several times, in a circle shape using Jet Black Stazon ink. This creates the base of your wreath.
Now stamp multiples of the following pieces on white cardstock to create the layers of your wreath. Stamp the Pine Branch using Rich Cocoa ink and die cut with coordinating die. Color with a mix of Bamboo Leaves and Leaf Green inks, and the stems with Rich Cocoa ink. Stamp the Pinecone with the Rich Cocoa, color it with a mix of Sepia and Rich Cocoa ink and die cut. Sponge some Gesso on one edge of each pine cone and let it dry. Stamp the Festive Holly leaves with the Jet Black ink, color them with the Bamboo Leaves and Leaf Green inks and die cut. Shape all of your pieces with the Deluxe Flower Shaping kit. Take your red Nuvo drops and place some dots on the spots where the berries are, allow to dry. When dry, put some glue on a sponge and sponge on the Holly Leaves and Berries then sprinkle some of the Frosting Powder on it and heat it with the heat tool.
Stamp multiples of the small poinsettias and holly leaves with Jet Black ink on white cardstock and color with Pearlescent Poppy ink, die cut and shape them with the 3D shaping Mold. Glue 2 on top of each other, make a hole in the center and add a stamen. Dab them with glue and sprinkle with the Frosting Powder, heat it with the heating tool.
Layer the shaped images along on top of the clear cardstock as desired. First adhere your pine branches on top of the wreath base, then add the pinecones, tucking them under the pine branches, followed by the Festive Holly leaves. Finally add the poinsettias, reserving one for the bow.
Make a nice red bow and glue this on top of the wreath, in the middle you can place a piece of the pearls on a string, and on top of that you place the last poinsettia.
