An Extra-ordinary Wreath

Hello friends!

Hope your day is going well! I am loving the beginning of Fall season and can't quite stop playing with leaves and wreaths. Today's creation is a little extra-ordinary....

As I was creating the following card. I noticed the delicate coordinating wreath.


(the upper wreath from Harvest Wishes)

I decided to try using the Harvest Wreath Die only as a frame.  After playing with the dies and stamps a bit, this is the result.

so thankful -002 
I actually die cut the frame and then fit it into the white card stock. I did the inlaid die-cutting here because I wanted to keep the layering to minimum.so thankful 
 
The Falling Leaves Cut Out are currently in limited in stock over Simon Says Stamp. I die cut the colorful leaves from my DIY paper with Zig Markers (listed below). The sentiment is from "Wagonful" Stamp Set. so thankful -003 
 
 I love the gold of the wreath and used the leaves as a embellishments. The wreath die is more than a coordinating die. You can use however you see fit...and that's what I did here.so thankful -001 
 What do you think?  To me, this is kind of extra-ordinary wreath. I hope that this post inspires you to look at your supplies with a different perspective! I am listing all the stamps and die that I will be featuring in coming weeks.

Great idea to use the wreath's frame die as a design element, Virginia - so gorgeous in gold with your added bouquet!!

This is really pretty! Love the
plain gold frame for a change,
with the cluster of leaves offset!

Nice combination. I really would like to try those Zig markers. I'm thinking of maybe just picking a couple of markers to test out.
