Anna Griffin Emerald Forest Wreath – by Deb Saaranen

Deb has been waiting for her last shipment of supplies and they finally arrived.  As most of you likely know, Deb joins us each week from Swaziland, Africa, where she is experiencing summer weather right now.  But I know her heart has thoughts of Michigan weather in mind as she creates for Christmas.  She created a beautiful, classic card for us today using several new items she just received; namely, the Anna Griffin Emerald Forest 6×6 pad, a Spellbinders Die D-Lites Holly Wreath and another Spellbinders tag set, Back to Basics Tags.  Deb was really impressed with the weight of the Anna Griffin paper.  It is very heavy, more like cardstock than designer paper.  I really enjoy that about the Anna Griffin paper pads as well.  Anyway, Deb’s wreath card today is fabulous — let’s take a look:


Love this sheet of green paper paired with the ivory labels and die cut wreath.  Crisp, clean and so lovely!!!  And the red accents are spectacular!

You can find Deb’s post on her blog here.
