Stampin'Up! Snow Swirled Wreaths

Today's project is for the MojoMonday sketch challenge. I chose to make the circles into a wreath using the snowflakes from the Snow Swirled stamp set. The stamp set lends itself to many designs. One of my favorites.


I drew a circle onto Very Vanilla to use as a guide for stamping the snowflakes. The large snowflakes are stamped in Old Olive and the small ones in Ruby Red. I then cut it out with my paper snips. I used the Stamp-a-ma-jig to center the large ones.

For the cross strips, I used Ruby Red card stock and the "soon to be released" Pinking Hearts Border punch. I love it! The second strip is from the Merry Moments Designer Series paper.

The buttons are from the Playground Designer Buttons and the Merry Christmas phrase was cut from Hostess set, Holiday Best.





Today's post is short and sweet. I'm off to battle a few crowds Christmas shopping.

Merry Christmas,
