My card is a 5-1/2″ square card and I do have several layers including a pretty white mulberry paper layer at the bottom. The inner white square that I placed the wreath on measures 3-1/2″ x 3-1/2″. That is layered on red and I trimmed a small border. Below that you can see the Square Frame die in green which is mounted on a 4-1/8″ square of white cardstock.
I cut the wreath in emerald, dark green, and gold cardstock and then layered them all for added dimension. I then cut some berries from red cardstock and added them throughout the wreath. I topped it off with a pretty gold jingle bell and bow. The corners are adorned with holly in red and green.

Hi friends. This week we have a great new Halloween themed challenge over on the Cheery Lynn Designs Blog. I hope you’ll head over and link up a project to share with us.
I love the wonderful subtle texture you get by using the Large Parallel Rectangular Pierce Plate. I use it quite a bit when a white background is just too plain.
My sentiment was cut in black and orange and layered to create the shadow effect. I cut my pumpkins in orange, then added brown stems and backed them with yellow for a jack-o-lantern look. I have some grass behind them. My sentiment is up on foam tape and I shaped the bat wings a bit before adding the bats.I added the boo sentiment and a scary ghost to the inside of my card.
