Christmas Wreath Card

Here is another card which can easily be made from the designs on the Christmas Booklet from Free Craft Downloads

I used the wreath & bells image (page 8 of the booklet)
I cut out and made up the pyramid design, then while the silicone glue was drying I took an old CD and glued it to piece of red card then used some fancy edged scissors to cut around it
For the base card I used an A4 sheet of dark green card folded to A5 size
I stuck the wreath / bells pyramid design to the centre of the CD then stuck that to my base card near the top
I added some "stickles - icicle" to the bells when dry it gives a nice glittery effect
I put a small silver bow on the top of the CD and a couple of bells peel offs to the top 2 corners
near the bottom I added a "Seasons Greetings" silver peel off which I had stuck to a small rectangle of red card and edged with a silver border peel off

I like the rainbow effect on the CD as it caught the light when taking the picture
Making cards like this is also a good way to use up all those old and unwanted CD's
