For my card today I wanted to use the colors from the inspiration photo to create a fall wreath. One of my favorite techniques is using die cuts to creates larger objects and that’s exactly what I did today. This card does require a lot of die cutting, but I absolutely LOVE the end result! You can watch the video tutorial below for all the details on how I put this entire card together.

Here are a few finished photos of this fall wreath card!

And another closeup of the finished wreath. This did take a bit of time to put together, so I wanted it to be the main focal point on this card. For that reason, I kept all the other layers, except for a kraft mat, white without any embellishment! When I use a lot of white layers, I do add dimension to several layers. This add some shadow to the layers and helps them stand out from one another.
