Woodware Challenge Traditional Christmas

Traditional Christmas says to me red and here we have my idea.
I've used Woodware's A4 craft card for my base card which I folded in half, so its quite a big card being A5. The background patterned paper is called Helsinki no 22253.
The stamp is JGS260 Festive Background and I've used a set of embossing powders from Stampendous EK06. It contains just the right colours to match my traditional Christmas theme. Stamp with VersaMark onto cream card, emboss with three or four of the embossing powder colours and I like to add a bit of distressing to the edges created with a VersaFine vintage sepia ink pad.
Punches used to create the wreath are 826-25 and 830-45. And a small circle 815-30. The holly leaves and the berries have been given the floral punch craft treatment to bring them to life. I have stuck all the holly leaves to a doughnut shaped circle about 8cm across which acts as a good base for your wreath. Mount it onto your card with foam tape.
I have spritzed the wreath once finished with a mica shimmer spray to give it some WOW factor, but that's optional!
As you can see another little shrink plastic tag adorns my card which is made from white shrink plastic, JGCL551 Christmas Verse and JGS155 Snowflake Medley.
