Memory Box Harvest Double Arch Card and Winter Greenery Wreath Card…

Hi cardmaking friends!  Have you tried Dave’s Die Cutting with Napkins Technique yet? I want to see what you make!  Watch it HERE, you’re gonna love it! I’ve been playing with it the last few days and it’s so much fun!

I die cut two of each arch from the NEW Harvest Double Arch die, like Dave explains in the video. Painted them and arranged them into a wreath.  It’s very easy to do because of the curve of the die cuts.

I painted with Gansai Tambi watercolors and Champagne Gold from Gansai Tambi Starry Colors set.

I adhered the diecut  NEW Joy Airy Script die from Gold Mirror Cardstock and using mounting tape cut in narrow strips I stuck it to the inside of the wreath.

I stamped to the world from the NEW Merry and Bright Mistletoe clear stamp set in Coffee Archival ink.

Then I glued everything to a Taylored Expressions Toffee Cardstock A2 size top folding cardbase that I cut and scored.

My next card is another wreath.  Yes I love them I guess!  They keep making appearances on my cards! lol

Here I used my homemade 4 ¼ inch template for stamping wreaths. It’s similar to Gina K’s but her’s are different sizes.  I’m sure her 4 inch or 4 ½ inch template would work too!  I made mine by die cutting two 4 ¼ inch squares in a heavyweight cardstock.  I have a Big Shot Plus which helps because you need the width when you have to cut on the diagonal to make the template this size.

I used the NEW Winter Greenery stamp set again… that smaller branch in the set… I will use the other branches soon too!  lol Scroll down or click HERE for another version of this wreath…

The berries are from the NEW Mistletoe Swag stamp set…scroll down my blog to see a card made with it or click HERE  and another card with this stamp set HERE.

I put the berries stamp on an acrylic block and just stamped them in pretty much the same place all around the wreath… you don’t really need the stamp platform or template for them.  Anyway, I didn’t use one.

The black and red cardstocks are from Taylored Expressions, Cherry Pop and Oreo…link below. I can’t remember what inks I used to stamp the greenery and berries though! ugh  Too many days since I made it.

I love the beautiful scripty font sentiments in this Winter Greenery set too… so pretty!

That’s it from me today!  Thank you for stopping by! Oh, I’m still playing with the napkin technique…I have another card but I didn’t get a frame cut just right so I think I’m going to make it over. ugh.  😀
