Twofer Card Challenge #11: Wreath

Wreath is the word for a very festive Twofer Card Challenge this month!  I chose the Lawn Fawn Mini Wreath for my two cards.
This first card looks like a Christmas greeting card:
But it's an invitation...
To a white elephant party!
The elephant and background were colored with Copics and adhered behind the door with 1/4" scor-tape. The door and steps were added on top of a dry embossed background.  I free hand cut some snow drifts to create a walk way and placed the door mat at the bottom.  The wreath was cut once out of cs and once out of glitter paper.  The bow and berry dies come in the mini wreath die set.  A stylus was used to fluff up the bow.

This fall thank you card was created by die cutting squares, then die cutting the wreath out of each square, and replacing each wreath in a different square.  I added another square on the back of each of them to adhere the inlayed pieces together, then arranged them on a piece of kraft cs the size of my 5" x 6,5" card base.  I cut off the overlapping wreaths with a paper trimmer and added the die cut sentiment.
