Started to play around with some of my Christmas stamps and wanted to use the candy cane stamp in an unexpected way. It took several trials until I found a wreath that I liked. I punched a 1 1/4" circle to use as my guide as I stamped around the circle. I intentionally stamped and stamped off as I went around. I just cut the center and outside with scissors. I also used a brad to put the two felt leaves together. It made it easier to glue a berry on top and to adhere to the card.
I'm not sure if the card is too simple. I feel like it still needs some jazzing up. This one is going into my pool of possible Christmas cards.

Very creative and well executed. The candy cane wreath is very distinctive and I like the felt leaves and sparkly holly berries. The sentiment banner looks terrific with the dimension. A lovely Christmas card.
