More Alternative Ideas for Cards with the Gina K Designs Wreath Builder Stencils

I recently played with the Gina K Designs Wreath Builder stencil to see if I could come up with some ideas other than the traditional circular wreath and this is one of the cards I share in my latest YouTube video here. I used the stencil in a MISTI and a bunch of smaller stamps to create a background for this Christmas card. I stamped a small ornament 4 times and then repeated with various snowflakes in blues and purples and the result was this fun background. I die cut Christmas out with letter dies from Die-namics, raised the letters on sticky fun foam and placed them back in their spots so the pattern continues through the letters. "Merry" was cut with a die from Stampendous and the snowy border is from Poppy Stamps. Here is another look so you can see the "eclipse" technique dimension on the word Christmas:

My second alternative way to use the Gina K Designs Wreath Builder stencil is something I learned how to do in a class taught by Gina K herself, and I show how to do it in the video here. Without the stencil and the MISTI, it would be nearly impossible to create the uniform pattern you see here, but it is super easy with those tools. I die cut "Happy Winter" from Karen Burniston and popped up a stitched snowflake from Lawn Fawn in the center of my fun winter card. 

Thanks for visiting my blog and for taking the time to watch and subscribe at my YouTube channel. And thanks for helping me #share the joy of creativity!

Beautiful cards! Love the snowflakes!
I just have the Mini MISTI, so the template won't work with that, but I love the cards created with the wreath builder stencil!
