Altered Dies #23

Hi Everyone! I can't believe the Christmas season is upon us! This year just flew by. I want to show you another altered die card I made into a Christmas card. I am showing this a day early because my Just For Fun card is going up tomorrow. This cardinal by Inkadinkado is one of my all favorite Christmas stamps. The image was cut using the Gina Marie stitched circle die.

I started with the Tim Holtz Woodlands dies by Sizzix.  

I cut 10 trees and then cut the bottoms off of each one.

I then arranged these bottom pieces in a circle to form the wreath!

I had all these little "trees" left so I decided to make another Christmas card with them while I had everything out on my desk.

Thanks so much for stopping by. I hope this has inspired you to create some wreaths of your own. Have a wonderful and blessed day!

April, that is so neat! I really like how you were able to stretch that die for more than one card!
