Christmas Florida Style


Hello, I have a card for you today that may just be my favorite card of the season, so far that is! It all transpired when I saw the natural wreath photo over at Inspired By. When I first sat down to make this card, I was headed in the fall direction but as it started to come together I thought why not include the Christmas photo and the sketch while I was at it too. So that is what I did. Then I was looking for something to decorate the wreath with and came across my shell dies and I was like…Score! It took about 5 or 6 leaf dies that are rather straight to form my wreath. I love that it is not perfectly tight! I also thought the Postal Die mimicked the top of the door! I should know what that is called since I am a huge Home Town fan, but the word escapes me at the moment. Love me some Erin and Ben!

I would also like to play along with two other challenges as well! You know I love the Happy Little Stampers monthly Anything Goes with Dies challenge, and then I am trying to support the new Christmas Card Challenge called Peace on Earth. They are up to their 3rd challenge already. They have an inspiration board to use if you want to but not required.

Card Details: The Wreath was made from six straight leaf dies from Sizzix-Spring Foliage. The postal die cut is from Hero Arts. The shell-dies are Impression Obsession. A few gold glitter sparkles in groups of three and some twine. The greeting is from Veve.

Thanks so much for stopping by! Your visits always brighten my day! Take care, Nanc’

  6. Lisa is right, it’s called dentil molding and the potage dies works well for it. Your Florida wreath is wonderful, Nancy. Those sea die cuts make great decorations for it.

  7. What a beautiful card! I love the wreath in white with the beachy ornaments.
