Stamping with Fun Foam---A Christmas Wreath

Hi all! This is Jeannie from Nonna's Scraps. It is so wonderful to be back with my friends! Don't you agree that this is an amazing place? Thanks for letting me visit and share a fun project today!
I am into the Christmas mode. How about you? I love making stamps with Fun Foam on my Cricut Expression and would like to share a sweet holiday card made using this technique.The wreath is so quick and easy, you won't believe it!
Cricut Expression 1 or 2
Cricut cartridge with a leaf shape
Cricut cartridge with a circle shape
Fun foam
Xyron adhesive
Red Stickles
Tim Holz Distress Inks--3 shades of green
Perfect Pearls Irridescent
Gold Ribbon
Sentiment stamp of choice
A-2 card background

The following videos will describe how I prefer to cut the fun foam on my Cricut. The stamp that is cut is not the same one used for this card. It is, however the exact technique.

For the card:
1. Cut the leaf at 1" actual size.
2. Cut the circle at 2" actual size. This creates a template for the wreath shape. Trace with a pencil, centered on the front of the card.
3. Using the darkest green, stamp around the outside of the circle (widest edge to drawn line) and then inside of the circle (widest edge to drawn line). Vary the angle. 
4. Repeat #3 using the medium green. 
5. Repeat #3 using the lightest green. While damp, dust with Perfect Pearls. 
6. Add Red Stickles berries.
7. Add Gold bow. 
8. Stamp with sentiment. 

Great card, great holiday, great fun! Come visit me at my home soon! 

Until next time---keep sorting those scraps!
