One Cut... Three Wreaths!

Evening Chicks!

I now have a table in my 'Rubber Room' so have the Cricut set up to play with now!  WooHoo!!
I used one of the Christmas Carts and cut out the wreaths, first on white paper to play with.  This wreath above is first cut in a gold shimmer paper.  Some of the leaves are glued and have applied micro fine glitter from Glitter Ritz.  I goofed on this one and the shadow cut (brown) was stuck on upside down making the leaves go the wrong way....ooooops!  I kind of like how it turned out tho'!
This wreath was cut out in a very light aqua and then used the new Glitter Ritz colour Iced Mint I think it is.  Added sprigs of branch done with a MS punch.  The background was embossed.  Pearls were from the dollar store.
I've saved the best for last!  This is the one I love.  The background paper is a very light aqua and I'm not sure but it could be from Stampin' Up! years ago.  Once again I popped up parts of the leaves where the vein cuts were to give it dimension.  Spriggs of branch done with the MS punch and small white flowers from Michaels in the wedding section.  The sentiment is by Flourishes and the second half of it is stamped inside.... It's time for Mistletoe and Holly!
Thanks for looking and have a wonderful weekend!
Hugs,
Sheree

These are stunning, gorgeous and fabulous. Really, I am so envious that I don't have a Circut. Santa, we have a problem!

Sheree
These are great and I confess your last one is the one I like the best as well.
I love the idea of wreaths this year for some reason and blue is factoring into most of my cards. Wonder why?
