I kind of feel like anything is fair game when it comes to cards these days, so I purposely pulled out supplies that I bought for other crafts to make sure I used something from my "general crafting" supplies. The beads are from some necklaces/keychains I made with a church youth group I used to help with and the embroidery floss was originally used on some hand puppets I made a few years ago.
The idea for the wreath on my card was inspired by some wreaths I've seen floating around Pinterest. I love the argyle and have been wanting to make a wreath very similar to this for my front door. I created the wreath by hand-cutting the diamonds from PTI's orange zest and true black cardstock, glued them on, and then wrapped the black floss around to create the argyle pattern. Then I added the beads and the leaves (die cut with PTI's Happiness In Bloom Leaves Die). I wanted to balance the shininess on the beads on the wreath, so I embossed the sentiment from PTI's Bountiful Banners. Oh, and I added a little texture to the card front with PTI's Linen & Canvas Impression plate.
