Good Monday morning.  I have a clean and simple Christmas wreath project to share with you today.  But first I want to thank all of you who have commented on my special anniversary blog candy post. If you have checked out the post and blog candy there is still time.

I embossed the white card base with Sizzix Loving Thoughts folder to create a frame that would enhance the wreath but still allow it to be clean and crisp.

I created the wreath using the Martha Stewart Branch Punch and mounted the foliage on a small cut circle.  You can check out my wreath and mini wreath tutorial if you would like to see step by step pictures of how I made this wreath. I added tiny flowers made using the MFT Pretty Posies and holly made from the Impression Obsession Twig Wreath set.  I love how sweet and festive it is against the all white background.

I get asked all the time about how I give my cards since they won’t fit in an envelope.  I found wonderful crystal clear boxes and wanted to share them with you. I consider my cards a gift of love to whoever receives them.  Presenting them in one of these boxes makes it all the more special.

The boxes are also the perfect size to hold a set of note cards and envelopes.
