Halloween wreath cardIn my world, wreaths aren’t just for Christmas. By using a black and orange color palette, presto-change-o… a spooktacular Halloween card is born! When I find a technique or idea that I love, I use it for all types of occasions throughout the year by making simple changes to the design. This card is super easy to make using our shape hole punches – perfect leaf shapes every time!

Try making this card with a blossom wreath to welcome a baby girl or a bluebell wreath for a baby boy. How about a fuchsia and red wreath for a Valentine’s Day card? The possibilities are endless!

1. Punch 20 or more branch shapes out of black text weight paper. Use a glue stick to adhere each branch punch to the front of the poppy card in a shape of a wreath.
2. When the wreath is complete, embellish with Stickles glitter glue. Try using a paintbrush to dab Stickles all over.
3. Cut a length of 1/4″ black ribbon to approximately 7″, tie a bow and adhere to the bottom of the wreath.

    Thank you! I so appreciate the Paper Source Blog and the how-to videos at your web site. Alas there is not a Paper Source store in Colorado! Darn. Luckily, I occasionally get to Boston or Bellevue, Washington stores.
