Hey there! It’s Judy V here with a wreath card created for my first DT project for this month for CutCardStock.
I was perusing Pinterest and saw several cards of this design and decided to give one a try.
Die’sire (Crafter’s Companion) “Floral Easel” die set, Die’sire (Crafter’s Companion) “Trellis” die set, Peony Collection Corner Bloom (Natures Garden, Crafter’s Companion) stamp & die set Peony Collection 12 x 12 paper pad, Spectrum Noir Markers & Finesse Ink Pad, Martha Stewart Butterfly Punch, ribbon, pearls, wet glue, tear tape, red line tape, acetate.
Florals and Wreath Form
The corner flower stamp used was stamped 5 times on Royal Sundance FELT Brilliant White card stock, colored and die cut. I cut the wreath base out of the Kraft Chipboard using 2 scalloped dies forming a frame, 4 times.
3 of the frames were glued together with wet glue to give the wreath some stability. Rather than lining the pieces up perfectly, I staggered to give a twined effect. A strip of acetate was cut and adhered to the back of the wreath to hold my sentiment piece, which is a die cut from the paper pad I used. Red line tape was used to adhere these pieces. The 4th frame die cut will be glued to the back to cover the acetate.
I made the card base next. An 8 1/2 x 11 inch piece of Natural Twine Kraft Card Stock, was trimmed to 6 x 9 inches and folded in half. A 5 1/4 inch circle was cut from the center.
Instead of leaving the card base bare, I decided to add patterned paper. The patterned paper measures approximately 5 3/4 x 4 inches. This piece was trimmed with a half circle along the upper edge. A border was die cut out of Pearlized Textured Fruit Punch Pink card stock. Ribbon was laced through.
Note that the base size can be adapted, smaller or larger, depending on the size of your “wreath” form. The largest scalloped die I used measures 5 1/2 inches.
Adding Wreath and Flowers
The wreath and flower pieces were adhered with wet glue.
Embellishemnts are added to complete. I used a 3 loop bow, hand punched butterflies and pearls.
I hope you have enjoyed my Wreath Card project as much as I enjoyed creating it.
