My card today features the recently released Winter Wreath Die-namics from My Favorite Things. I don't know how this die slipped under my radar during November teasers, but it did, so it was high time to remedy the situation.

I used this week's Colour Throwdown, CTD219, for the non-traditional holiday colour combo. This one seems so fresh to it! The layout is DS78 (well, mostly it's DS78...with a slight alteration). I started with the base layers of Blue Raspberry and Steel Grey cardstock. Then I used the High Tea Doily Die-namics to cut out the Sno Cone doily. The patterned paper is from the My Mind's Eye Winter Wonderland collection. I used the wider of the flags from First Place Award Ribbon Die-namics to cut out the Blue Raspberry flag behind the white square, but it was just a little too short, so I snipped it down the middle and split it apart in the back. A perfect solution to have it sticking out from both sides.

I used the Winter Wreath Die-namics to cut out three wreaths from silver cardstock then layered them onto the Sweet Tooth square. I cut out two bows from Blue Raspberry, trimmed the tails off one of them, them layered them for a little dimension. I finished the front by stamping a sentiment from Seasonal Sentiments with Memento Bamboo Leaves ink.

On the inside I stamped another sentiment from Seasonal Sentiments and used the Simply Scallops Medium Die-namics to cut out the Blue Raspberry scallop.

Here are the supplies I used:
