Here is the card I made this month:

The base for the wreath on the pole is the shaving cream technique using gypsy and whisper.  I then used the light string to create the wreath of lights and the half circle of lines to create greenage around the wreath.  Add the blings to the wreath and lights and the cards has the sparkle and shine!

Here is a detail of the wreath:

  9. This is sooo creative! I have tried to play with this and recreate it but can't get the light strand to go right. Do you have any tips or tricks to help it lay the right way?

    1. I laid the string down starting from one end. The string didn't completely meet in a circle but I covered the gap with the bow.
