Wreath Christmas Card

I have made a 8x8in white easel card. I have covered both the top and bottom with green embossed card. I embossed the card using an Embossalicious embossing folder. I have used a wreath I had from Hobbycraft in the clearance after Christmas last year. I have decorated with various embellishments from my stash. The mistletoe is from Hobbycraft, the berries are from Anna Marie and the roses from The Range. I attached these using a glue gun. I die cut the sentiment using a Elizabeth Craft die and added it to a oval cut with a Presscut die and then attached that to another red oval cut with the next size oval in the nesting set. I attached that to my card using mounting foam. I have used a white and red strip of card with red satin ribbon for the stopper then added ovals cut with the same nesting set as before. These will include a personalised sentiment closer to Christmas/ I completed with Tonic Nuvo drops as berries on my embossed background.
