Winter Wishes Wreath

Wreaths Challenge

Using a Penny Black wreath stamp I first stamped the image in versamark and then heat embossed in silver. using a berry sprigs die set from Dee’s Distinctively I cut the red sprigs and played with placement until I like the look. Glued them in place but left parts loose for dimension. Didn’t like the square orientation so I cut the wreath using a Sissix set and added some foam to the back. Searched through my pp and found the black plaid piece for background. Popped the wreath on top and added the bow, but it needed some bling so I added the small gems here and there in different colours. The sentiment is from a CTMH set that I’ve used almost every year since I purchased it as I like the font. Heat embossed in white on a black scrap piece that I rounded the corners of. Popped up along the bottom. My hubby loved this effort and my photo doesn’t really do it justice as it looks nicer in reality than here.

    1. Thanks so much. I got this finished yesterday late afternoon but didn’t have time to upload it. Glad I waited as I added the bling today and was happier with it.


  1. Johanna, this is beautiful! I can’t imagine how wonderful it looks in person. I love how you made the wreath work how you wanted, rather than just going with the designer’s idea. Those different colored jems are great, too.

  2. Your wreath looks so pretty embossed in silver, and die cutting around it with the scalloped circle die looks great! Love the black and white plaid background and the coordinating bow as well!

    1. Glad you like it and thanks for taking time to comment. I really enjoy the mood boards at Double D as they allow for a lot of scope in creativity.


  3. This is a good idea to create the branches of your wreath with the silve embossing powder and then putting on the red branches. Thanks for sharing this with us at Double D Challenge.

  4. Oh my gosh Johanna I love this. Everything is so perfect together. Scalloped circle was a great idea for the pretty silver wreath. The red branches and colorful gems really make it pop. I can imagine how beautiful it is in real life.
