Snowflake Wreath

Hello and Welcome
I just recently picked up the Gina K wreath builder template and wanted to try it out using these great snowflakes from the Penny Black set called First Snow.  It made for a fun card.

I began with a piece of heavy white cardstock and the wreath builder template set up in my Misti.  There are numerous YouTube videos showing how simple this is to do.  
I inked up the snowflakes with Peacock Feathers and Blueprint Sketch inks and stamped my wreath.
Leaving the stamped wreath in my Misti, I stamped the sentiment from the Thrill of Hope PB set, moved it a bit and stamped again with the above inks.  I die cut this little bow to finish it off.

I mounted the piece onto some matching blue cardstock, then onto a heavy white card base.

Thanks so much for coming by and taking a look.

What a great idea to make a wreath shape using these pretty snowflakes Karen, I will have to give this a try with some of my stamps as it looks fabulous and love the bright blue ribon and sentiment as finishing touches. x
