Autumn Wreath

Autumn is such a fabulous time of the year with all of the brilliant colors and fun fall decorations.   I thought I'd try making a card with an all white background, using the bright colors of the fall leaves in a decorative wreath for a contrasting focal point.

  • White cardstock
  • Poppy Stamps/Memory Box Grand Madison Door Die
  • Sizzix Tim Holtz Alterations Embossing Folder - Bricked
  • Stampin'  Up! 1" and 3/4" circle punches ( punch the small one first, then the larger circle around it to make a ring as a base for the wreath to glue leaves to)
  • Martha Stewart Autumn Branch punch
  • tiny maple and oak leaf punches - old dollar punches from Michaels
  • scrap cardstock in autumn colors
  • tarnished pewter color brad for door handle
  • Stickles in a variety of fall colors
I am entering this in this week's Simon Says Stamp challenge: Dies and/or Punches.

Have a great week.

The burst of color from the tiny wreath hung with care on the door is spectacular Susan!

This is AMAZING! So clever and creative... LOVE the pop of color that the wreath gives against the white. Just stunning! :) Thanks so much for participating in the 'Punches & Dies' challenge over at the Simon Says Stamp challenge blog! xo

Hi Susan,
This is a simple design, and yet a very creative idea. Truly beautiful :)

I love how you used this great die over the embossed background. The colorful wreath is done just perfect!

Totally gorgeous and such a great use of the door die (which I now want), the embossing folder, and the leaf punches.

You're a great enabler too! :D

BTW, I'm pinning a bunch of your stuff to inspire me (and to have a place to store inspiration).
