I am posting a day early for the Whimsical Scraps & Bugs DT challenge, but I wanted to make sure I got my card linked up to Mojo Monday since their sketch this week inspired my card as well! The latest challenge coming up over at WSB is to use your Cricut to create a wreath for a card. I challenged myself to paper piece a wreath and ended up using my Mini Monograms cart and its awesome scallop circle feature. I have to say that this is probably my fav cart and fav feature hands down. I turn to it time and again for so many projects!
The paper I used for the card included The Paper Studio, Provo Craft & Autumn Leaves. The leaf paper I made using a SU Stampin' Round roller and Old Olive SU ink. The bling is by Studio 18, the ribbon is from a Christmas present I received last year ( i totally save all my packaging every year and upcycle it any way i can!), and the buttons are some vintage ones from my stash. I also used some Autumn Leaves ink in topaz to distress the edges of all the papers. I also used pop dots on each level of the wreath to give it some dimension. I used an SU sentiment inside the card and stamped "warm wishes" with SU Riding Hood Red ink. (don't you just love the cute names SU always comes up with for its ink?!)
Make sure you hop on over to WSB and check out what some of the other DT members came up with! And, check out Mojo Monday too if you get a chance...they always have great projects to inspire you! I also want to say that I am sorry for not posting so regularly lately. Things have been hectic. However, I promise to do a better job keeping up with my crafty postings even though it is one of the most busy times of the year due to the holidays. I am working on several projects and may even have another post to put up later today...or at least tomorrow! So make sure to check back! Happy Scrapping!
