I used the lovely wreath from the Hello lovely set but it's not as big as the image in the kit, and the sentiment took up more room so I flipped it from portrait to landscape. I also add the black metallic thread loops under the ribbon and I didn't even bother trying to add berry burst berries to the wreath as I knew that I would make a mess so I opted to use the berry glimmer dots which were perfect. It still seemed a bit sparse so I added some very fine berry splatters for a touch of texture.
I think this would make up quite quickly for a batch of cards- and it would be quite easy in a class situation also.
I also CASED the striped card on the far left of the picture and simply used a sponge roller to add some Emerald Envy ink just lightly rolled over the Black and White DSP. I love changing the colour of the DSP this way to suit. I used the same label treatment for the sentiment. I will confess I tried sponging the edges, painting the edges, drawing a line around etc and in the end came back to a plain white label with sentiment and a simple punched circle behind - but of course green or berry?, round or square? Next time maybe I'll just go for the kit and not fuss!!!
