I punched out a 1" circle from a scrap piece of cardstock. I centered the 1" hole in my 1 3/8" circle punch and punched out a ring that I used as backing for mounting the leaves.
I die-cut 10 silver leaves and bent each of them to add depth. I placed Tombow glue around the ring and added the leaves on top, overlapping them as I went. While the glue was still wet, I was able to move the leaves around a little until I was happy with the way they looked; I set the wreath aside to dry.
I took a strip of glue dots still on their backing paper and secured the backing paper to my work surface to hold it flat. I squeezed red glitter glue over top of each glue dot; I set them aside to dry.
When everything was dry and ready to use, I continued with my card. I ran a large piece of Whisper White cardstock through my Big Shot with the Snowflake embossing folder.
I cut a piece of Real Red cardstock large enough to hold the wreath, but made it longer to add the sentiment. I stamped the sentiment in VersaMark and heat embossed in white.
I cut two thin strips of the silver glitter paper and added them to the main panel above and below of the sentiment.
I mounted all the pieces as shown in the picture above, popping up the wreath and the main panel with dimensionals to add depth.
