Emboss resist wreath

Emboss Resist leaf wreath Heather Telford

After making numerous emboss resist panels for my September classes I had leftover pieces big enough to punch leaves from. I used a rounded leaf from the new Autumn Jewels set of dies to cut as many leaves as possible then arranged them into a wreath. The arranging took me quite a while as I tried various methods and orientations for the leaves. Having them all turn in the same way and overlap the same way seemed to be the best option in the end. I bent some of the leaves to curl down towards the card and others to curl up, then attached some with 3D adhesive squares and others with flat adhesive. I poked a few twigs of “dancing leaves” in amongst the leaves, added a small bow before matting then stamped a sentiment.

The colours around here are not at their most vibrant yet but on the way to Lake Placid a week ago I enjoyed a gorgeous display of reds, yellows and oranges across the hill sides.

    Perfect way to use up those autumn-coloured scraps — although I almost hate to call them that when they are so pretty.

    Love the way you’ve made this gorgeous wreath with the stunning leaves. A wonderful use of your snippets too. This is a fab die, and how clever to use your leftovers for leaves to make this autumn leaf.
