The holidays are just around the corner and in any store you stumble into the aisles are decked out with new decor, including wreaths. Dig out a favorite wreath stamp set, layer small die-cuts & punches or even use unconventional materials like buttons or rhinestones to create a wreath on the front of a festive card. You can choose to make your card fall-themed, embrace the upcoming holidays or just something pretty to use for an everyday greeting. Have fun experimenting with fun color combinations and layers of texture!
I have included an inlinkz list below for you to add your link to your blog hop project. This type of link list will allow you to select a thumbnail to go along with your link, making it easy to go back and find a project later that might have perked your interest.
You have until 11:30pm EST tonight (September 25th) to add your link to this list. THREE random participants will be selected to win a $25 PTI Gift Certificate to spend however they choose. They will be announced and highlighted here, on my blog, tomorrow morning.
We look forward to seeing all of your creations!
EDITED TO ADD RANDOMLY SELECTED WINNERS:
Arielle H. Gordon used Wreath for All Seasons to make this bright and cheerful card. I love how she used a bit of woodgrain to the right of the wreath image to help add balance to her project!
Tonya Dirk opted to make some real home decor for her door rather than just adorn a card front! Her use of all the different banner dies was really clever and unique!
SentSue created this festive holiday card, allowing the "o" to represent a wreath. The small touch of holly really made the project!
Congratulations to all of the winners! Please contact customer service and provide them with the email address you would like your gift certificate sent to! And a BIG thank you to everyone who participated! There were definitely some amazing projects shared!
Mine’s a fun take, even silly, but for elegant, sensational inspiration for autumn cards, I’ll be coming back to the gallery for this hop! WOW!!
