As soon as I saw the paper wreath in issue 172 of Quick Cards, I wanted to have a go myself, and found the instructions really easy to follow. I used Trimcraft’s Winter r Wishes paper for my wreath as I love the soft non-traditional Christmas colours and used scalloped circle and sentiment dies s for the centre of the wreath and added gems and ribbons, to finish . I also took inspiration from the Quick Fixes card designs, using the same Winter Wishes paper for the penguin card. I loved adding lots of gems all around the scalloped circle and giving the penguin a bow tie! Christine Bilyard, Lingwood
