Holly and Berry Wreath Christmas Card

Hi, Connie Nichol here today with a very easy Christmas card using the Holly and Berry Wreath cut file designed by Suzanne Cannon and available in the Silhouette store here.

I recently went on a scrapbook weekend retreat with some of my pals, and this was my first project.  Honestly, it took about five minutes.  Once you've got an electronic cutting machine and a good cut file, life gets so easy.  I simply cut leaves, twigs and berries out of three colours of cardstock, and arranged it around a stamped sentiment.  Isn't this stamp pretty? It's a new stamp from Quietfire Design in the shape of a Christmas tree, and the little circles can be embellished with gems, or little dabs of sparkly glitter glue.  I also think the wreath would look very pretty with a few red gems or glitter, but I had absolutely bare bone supplies at the weekend retreat and didn't have anything sparkly in my stash.  Sigh.  Oh well, it shows you what you can do with just cardstock - still very pretty!  My friends were oohing and aahing.  

Thanks for stopping by and maybe Santa will bring you some scrapbook supplies for Christmas.  Merry Christmas!
