Octagon Wreath

It's Saturday which means another challenge at Less Is More:


Use Designer Paper in a CAS Way
There's a tendency to forget about Designer Paper when creating Clean and Simple cards, but there is a variety of ways in which it can be used... without covering large areas of the card base.
Let's see what you can come up with!
 
I have hundreds of packs of patterned paper, loads have come free with magazines and loads more haven't even been opened yet! Am I the only card maker like this or is it a common trait?

This pack came free with a magazine a couple of years ago:


For all they are designed with summer fruits and jams in mind I thought they also had a Christmassy look about them...


I used my smallest octagon nestie and arranged the eight pieces in a wreath shape. Then just a ribbon and a simple greeting. I'm not 100% happy about the ribbon but c'est la vie!

Thanks for visiting

  5. I am always really amazed by the creativity of crafters on the LiM challenges...my cards are so basic next to the skill of other crafters. I really love this for its simplicity and its elegance.
