Poinsettia Wreath Card

Good morning!  I am so excited to share this card with all of you today!  As soon as I saw SVG Attic's Winter Wishes SVG kit, I immediately fell in love with it and have been brainstorming ways to use it ever since.  I don't usually hand-make the Christmas cards I send out because I get photo cards of my boys made so everyone can stay updated with them :)  Plus it would take a long time for me to make 60-70 cards.  However, I make exceptions for a few people and this card happens to be going to my husband's grandparents.  His grandma has the most gorgeous poinsettias that she keeps alive year round.  Without further ado, here is the card.
The card base itself is from the All At Sea set at SVG Attic.  It is the perfect shape to compliment the wreath.  It is A2 in size.
The wreath itself is from the Winter Wishes set.  I imported all of the wreath elements and sized them all at the same time so the wreath base was 4" wide.  The banner is one that I just cut by hand.  I stamped the sentiment on a thin strip of cardstock and folded it, then flagged the ends.  I used brown chalk ink around the banner.
Here is a close up of the beautiful poinsettias on the wreath.  Aren't they so realistic?  I used white chalk ink around the edges of all the layers.  I used Christmas Red Stickles on the top layer to add a little sparkle.  They are popped up with foam tape from the wreath base.  I added an adhesive pearl to the center of each to finish them off.
 I decorated the bottom using rumpled ribbon, some hemp twine and a jingle bell.
 And last, but not least, the inside of the card.  I colored the small elements with markers and added a small amount of Platinum Stickles.

I hope I have inspired you today with my card!  If you are in need of these files or any other SVG Attic files, now is the time to get them.  They are only $1 per set right now!  That price is only good through Thanksgiving Day (today), so don't wait!
