Vintage Leaves Wreath Card

So many leaves, so little time....
I could seriously design with the Vintage Leaves stamp set for a month - I love these images! 

Emma and I were driving home the other night and the idea of making a wreath out of these smaller leaves seemed like a fun idea to try - here's the result: 

I used the larger of the two leaves inked in Old Olive and stamped it in a circle shape on Whisper White card stock. It's stamped 8 times and the stem of each leaf is layered on the outside edge of the leaf behind it so they overlap a bit. 
The last two overlap a bit more, but it's the perfect spot for the bow! 

Next, I used the Leaflets Framelits with my Big Shot and cut out 8 of these smaller leaves that I'd stamped in Mossy Meadow ink on more Whisper White card stock: 

Each one had a Stampin' Dimensional added to the back. 
I then adhered them to the stamped leaves, tucking the stems slightly under the tip of the leaves behind them. 

Once all the leaves were attached, I used my 2 Way Glue Pen and dotted glue all over the leaves and added Gold Glitter for a bit of gleam. 

The bow is made with 24" each of Cherry Cobbler Thick Baker's Twine and Gold Metallic Thread. I adhered it to the wreath with Glue Dots. 
The greeting is stamped in Cherry Cobbler ink and is from the Joyful Season stamp set. 
Mossy Meadow card stock was used for the card base and a mat layer of Cherry Cobbler completes the color scheme. 
Here are your measurements: 
Mossy Meadow: 5 1/2" x 8 1/2" folded to make a 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" card base. 
Cherry Cobbler: 4 1/8" x 5 3/8"
Whisper White: 4" x 5 1/4"

Here's an alternate version using Basic Rhinestones for the "bling":

It's a little more simplistic, but if you're not a glitter girl - and I know you're out there! - this is a good alternative to adding some sparkle with no mess. :)
See how I'm always thinking of you? HeeHeeHee
