This is for FS295 and Vicki aka VDM is our featured artist today. Congratulations, Vicki! I had a great time surfing your gallery this morning. I was inspired your Merry Christmas wreath card found here: http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/ga...0&ppuser=95857
I kept the Christmas wreath theme and used red and white like Vicki's but I added a a grapevine wreath and used green pine instead of white. I added some country gingham ribbon and a gingham background and added some tiny red sparkly bling. Check out the tutorial section on the top right hand side of my blog home page if you would like to see a multi loop bow tutorial on ow I make my bows and a wreath tutorial for how I add pine to create a wreath. http://kittiekraft.typepad.com/kittiekraft/

Gorgeous card. I just purchased the same die two weeks ago. could you share how you usually adhere such die cuts. Note that in this one you use adhesive in sporadic spots would this be enough to hold in the mail?
Always a Challenge when using These very detailed dies. I tried using Peel and stick type of paper for a flower but stems too thin and tore the die so used glue pen. I suspect using a glue pen on this wreath would be too tedious. Thanks for any Advice.
