I’m so excited to participate in this month’s “Stock Your Stash” challenge for Reverse Confetti. The theme this month is Halloween/Fall fun. For my card today, I used some items from the new release along with another stamp set to create a gorgeous fall wreath. I hope you enjoy it!
I started with a panel of white cardstock cut to 4 1/4 by 5 1/2 inches. I used a circle die to trace a wreath shape slightly offset. I then used stamps from the “Friendly Florals” and the new “Poinsettia” set to stamp around my outline using black ink. Once I got the base of the wreath, I made sure to erase my pencil line. The images were colored with Copic markers. I used: W5, W3, YG95, G99, Y28, YR23, YR27, Y15, and YR21.
I stamped and die cut more greenery images as well as flowers. For this set of flowers, I wanted a bit more of an orange color (perfect for fall and with my yellows). They were colored using R08 and R02. I added everything to the wreath using liquid glue and foam tape. I added gold Perfect Pearls to water and splattered the panel. The new “gather” was hot foiled using gold and die cut with the coordinating die. I also die cut the “gather” in foam to allow the sentiment to overlap the other elements.
The “gather” was added to the middle of the wreath with liquid glue. I trimmed the white panel about 1/8th inch on the top and bottom for just a hint of the card base to show through. The panel was added to a light pink/beige top folding base. For a final touch, gold baubles were added throughout the wreath.
