Video - Alternative Holiday Card Ideas For the Gina K Designs Wreath Builder

 I recently received the Gina K Designs Wreath Builder Stencil and wondered what else I could do with it besides the standard circular wreath cards. I played and designed and came up with 4 cards I am featuring in my latest YouTube video here. I created this "spooky fun" Halloween cards with a set of stamps from Recollections and I show in the video how easy it is to get a uniform stamped pattern with the Wreath Builder Stencil. I also found the cute googly eyed spiders at Michaels. The "Spooktacular!" was cut with a die from Tonic Studios and I used another Tonic die and a ghost from Karen Burniston on the inside: 

My Happy Holidays card was made in the more traditional way using the stencil to stamp the small stamps 8 times each to create a wreath. The stamps are from the new Gina K Designs Holiday Wreath Builder Stamp Set. Instead of putting a sentiment in the middle of the wreath, I made a shaker card with a stitched circle die from Lil' Inker. I filled the shaker with a colorful mix from Studio Katia and the colors of ink I chose match the colors of the shaker mix. The 4 x 4 inch square fits perfectly on an A2 card with room for the perfect die cut sentiment from Tonic Studios. Here is another look at the shaker "all shook up" and the inside of the card: 

The sentiment "Christmas Blessings" was cut with a die from Sue Wilson. To see some more alternative ideas on how you can use the Wreath Builder stamps and stencils, click this link and watch the new video here. Thanks for watching, sharing and subscribing, and thanks, to for helping me share the joy of creativity!
