I love the Burlap and Blooms wreath kit in the Stampin’ Up! Occasions catalog this year, and I saw some cards that mimic the look of the wreath. My favorite was created by Angie Leach, so I used hers as a starting point.
I was showing some friends at stamp club one way to make a latch card using the scalloped tag topper punch, so I had the pieces left over and decided to use those for the card base. The wreath is die cut using circles collection framelits, and I used the sunburst technique to sponge it with Crumb Cake ink. The flowers were made using the 7/8″ scallop circle punch, Boho Blossoms punch and fringe scissors. I die cut leaves with the Little Leaves sizzlit to add a little extra to the wreath. And aren’t the In Color Boutique Details cute in the flower centers?
I was going to use the Hexagon Hive thinlit on another card, but it just didn’t work, so I decided to use the die cut piece on the front panel of this card. And finally – the Crushed Curry chevron ribbon ties the card closed and acts as a ribbon for the wreath.
Believe it or not, this was actually pretty simple to make – and it didn’t take that long. Waiting for the Dazzling Details to dry (inside the card on the Sale-a-bration “See Ya Later” birthday sentiment) took the longest.
I’m hoping that winter’s little tantrum last night was the end and spring will be here soon. I’m starting to rethink my belief that Virginia is part of the South!
Have a wonderful day – and thanks for stopping by Stamping with Buffy!
