A Sprig Punch Merry Christmas

Christmas is almost here!  This is my last Christmas post.   Beginning tomorrow, I'll be sharing cards made with our new Occasions catalog items and the Sale-a-Bration brochure.  You are going to love these catalogs.  I'm getting ahead of myself.  Let's get back to that last Christmas card.

Sprig Punch with Birds & Blooms by Jo Anne Hewins

Do you find that you think you have it all done, and then, yes, you need more Christmas cards?  Time is short and there is so much to do!  This is the card for you.  It's just so easy to punch.  The Sprig Punch is on back order right now, but it will be back!  You know, you can decorate a wreath in so many ways all through the year!

Start with a card base of Cherry Cobbler measuring 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 and folded at 4 1/4.  The next layer is Mossy Meadow cut at 4 3/4 x 5.  The wood panel paper is from the Festive Farmhouse Designer Series Paper.  It measures 4 5/8 x 4 7/8.

The saying at the botttom is from the Timeless Tidings stamp set.  I used the Stamparatus for this just to make sure that the coverage was perfect.  Use Cherry Cobbler ink.

Punch the leaves using the Sprig Punch and Mossy Meadow card stock.  I used 8 sprigs for this wreath.  I attached the sprigs with a glue dot.  Attach the first sprig.  Now add another.  I tried to add this sprig into the first so that you can't really see the end of the sprig.  Continue in a circular pattern.

The bird is cut using the Birds & Blooms Thinlits Dies.  Cut from the Cherry Cobbler check from the Festive Farmhouse paper.  I love that bird so much!  Attach with dimensionals.

The saying on the inside of the card is from the Making Christmas Bright stamp set.  Add another sprig.  The cobbler berries are punched out using the Cookie Cutter Builder Punch.

I do think this is a cute card.  Thank you so much for looking at my blog post today.  Have you subscribed to my weekly newsletter called Tuesday's Timely Tidbits?  As it says, it comes out every Tuesday.  (There will not be one on Christmas Day.)  I have local news, but also Stampin' Up! news.
