my sister first started making cards. She had taken a class and I was keen to try all the techniques she had learned. This wreath was on a used card. I removed the wreath and replaced the plastic bow with a fabric ribbon one. Found this background in my stash and sponged it with ink until I was happy with it. I sponged the greeting as well and then simply layered the wreath and greeting onto the background and then added this large element to the front of a red card. The wreath was created using gift wrap and I do not recall the technique but I expect I still have the instructions somewhere. This is really a blast from the past!!
