Christmas Wreath

Today I popped into my local Warehouse store in Milford to pick up some tape runner and notice they had some new Couture Creation dies.... some $10 some $15.  I simply couldn't resist getting a couple...

This is a card I made with a wreath die

CAS wreath.

It is a really intricate die but cut beautifully.  I went for a very CAS look.  The banner die is by Simon Says Stamp and the sentiment is white embossed.  I finished with some red gems and rounded the bottom corners.

The other die is a holly one and I also found a beautiful paper pad from Couture Creations


$10 for a 48 double sided papers... that's around 20c a sheet.  And they are really beautiful.  I will be working hard to try my hand at Shabby Chic with these papers.  

Hope you all have a great weekend.... I'm off to see The Rolling Stones on Saturday night.   Excited much!   However there is a bit of a down side... Hubby can't go as he is flying down country to attend the funeral of his older sister's hubby.  Very sad, only 62.  Another victim of Cancer.   RIP Allan.

Such a stunning CAS card. It's so much like a wreath without actually BEING a wreath. Great design.

I am excited to see your shabby chic creations, too!

My warehouse is not as nice as yours :-(. Couldn't find that die at all here. Love your card Dawn, it's a real stunner.
Enjoy the concert!
Blessings

Just re-read that last bit Dawn. Sorry to read of your brother-in-laws passing. So young! My daddy was only 56. A life cut short. Hugs, Wends x

I can see why you couldn't resist that die! Your card is just beautiful, Dawn! So sorry for your loss--each day is precious, for sure. How fun you get to see The Rolling Stones--take ear plugs--LOL! I surprised hubby for his 50th birthday & fortunately he knew we needed to take ear plugs!
