Christmas Wreath Card

For today’s project I was trying to use up some of my scraps and product I had in my craft room instead of going out and buying new stuff . . . crazy idea, I know.  I had this pack of scrapbooking paper that I was given as a gift and while I liked the pattern on the paper, it was too busy for me for a full scrapbook page.  I cut it down to be one of the layers of the background . . . even having it as the FULL background was still “too much”.
I layered it with some solid green and red paper and the wreath has some green glitter vinyl for the main piece.  Did you know that if you go to MyCutSearch.com and type the word wreath into the search bar you will find all of the Cricut cartridge images of a wreath? This cut is from Celebrate with Flourish.  Then I used Viva Decor for the holly berries.
Using a busy pattern in a small area and combined with solid colors is a great way to balance things out.

Yes I Am A CricutDIVA!

I am so excited to be here. I always knew I was a Diva!!! Thank you to Karin for having me here. I hope you will be inspired by my Cricut projects as well as my fellow Design Team Sisters. My goal is to inspire you to use your Cricut  machines and not just for paper crafting. The starting point for this mixed media plaque begins with the Word Collage cartridge.

When I applied for the DT I immediately thought of this project I had made in September. I used a lot of cartridges to make my project, the main starting point was with Word Collage. I love mixed media.

After using some paint fabric and vinyl I had a great base to start with. Of course I had to add some stamping as well.

Now the fun begins, lol. I pulled out my Cricut Expression, some acrylic and various cardstock. I used Celebrate With A Flourish for the wine bottle and glasses and French Manor for the corner glasses. My emblem on the glasses is from Mini Monograms.

In order to add some dimension I used some rubber grapes from my stash and a cork. Here’s the completed project:

There you go ladies. Thank you so much for looking. If you would like more details you can find the info on my blog at http://mary-fortheloveofart.blogspot.com/2013/04/wine-plaque-mixed-media.html
