CUTTLEBUGSPOT THANKS CARD CHALLENGE



























































Good Morning
Over at the Cuttlebugspot this week we are following on from our last 2 challenges of the Thanksgiving Invite, then Setting the Table and Nilda has asked us to make a Thank You to our host for a lovely dinner .
I found this fabulous video tutorial for a ribbon weaved wreath HERE (thanks to  Lynn for posting this link on her blog and thanks to En-May for the great tutorial) and it was so quick and easy to create!
For my card I used a cream A6 (US A2) card and cuttled it with the A2 trellis embossing folder from the Sizzix 'Hello Friend' set. I computer generated Thank You (sorry didn't note the font)  onto some cream card and punched out with a 3" paper punch and adhered to the back of the wreath. My wreath is made from 6mm  mustard gold satin ribbon from Hobbycraft and I added some little branches in cream using Martha Stewart branch punch which I finally found at Andy's shop Pinnacle Crafts! Finally I added some gold coloured gems to finish.
I can't wait to make some more of these wreaths for Christmas cards!
As ever pop over to the Cuttlebugspot and see the wonderful designs the DT have created this week and we would love you to join in with us too! We have a new sponsor this week , Letraset  and there is a chance to win some  fabulous Promarkers!
