Wreath Christmas Card

Hello Crafty Friends!

Are you ready to start making your Christmas cards for 2019?

I know it seems ridiculously early but it's never too early to start.  Christmas always seems to creep up on us so getting an early start avoids the stress and late nights later in November and December.

This is my first card as a DT member for the ABC Christmas Challenge.  The theme for this time is A: Anything Goes or B: Berries.  I chose to use berries and make this simple card. I decided that I really need to focus my efforts on the cards that need to be mailed. Thus I need to make more cards that aren't as bulky and take less postage to mail.  So with that in mind, this card is 4.25x5.5 and is flat.  I have plenty of cards that can be hand delivered to family and friends at holiday functions so those cards can have all the bulky embellishments and be larger square cards.

Card Details:
Martha Stewart branch punch for the wreath
Spellbinders bow die
Merry Christmas clear sentiment stamp

What a pretty wreath Julie and I really like the wood paper you used as the backdrop. How wise to think about flat cards for postage - your bank balance will thank you next December!
It's so good to have you on the team!

This is such a pretty and delicate wreath! Looks perfect on the woodgrain paper. (I'm always on the lookout for pretty woodgrain papers, especially for Christmas cards.) Love the pops of colour the berries and bow add. Looking forward to being another newbie with you on the team!
