CCMC177 – Holiday Wreath Punch Art

Happy Thanksgiving to everyone! 


I hope you are enjoying the day with family and friends…I know we are!  But, it's Thursday and we have a wonderful color combination for you to try over on Create with Connie and Mary!  So, after you are stuffed with turkey, check it out and play along!



I've seen a couple different styles of the bird wing wreath, so wanted to give it a try!



I started with a base of Lucky Limeade cardstock and added Night of Navy that I ran thru the Big Shot with the Houndstooth Impressions Folder.  I added two strips of the Lucky Limeade Ruffled Ribbon across the center.  I added a panel of River Rock cardstock.  Then the fun part!  I punched out a bunch of bird wings from the Two Step Bird Punch from the Patterns Designer Paper in Lucky Limeade and Night of Navy.  I punched a 1 3/8" circle of Whisper White and used Petite Pairs greeting in the center, then started building my wreath around it…using some Stampin' Dimensionals for added height.  I added some 1/4" Silver Glimmer Circles around the wreath…they certainly SPARKLE!  Finally, I added a bow of the Lucky Limeade Ruffled Ribbon with a Lucky Limeade patterned brad in the center.


I love the colors in this wreath, hope you enjoy it, too!  Make sure to check out the rest of the Create with Connie and Mary Challenge Team to inspire you this week…and come play along!  We love to see what you do with our challenges!

I love this wreath.  I have never seen one done with the bird wings before.  Your colours are just gorgeous and as usual your style is just perfect.
