Hi from Designer Chris! Today’s card makes me so happy!! I used the new Build a Wreath
digi stamp. Let’s check it out.
I sized the wreath I wanted (there are four wreath options in this incredible digi stamp set) and chose one of the many sentiments and sized it to go inside the wreath. That is one of the benefits of a digi stamp set, you can really manipulate them to any size you want! I also sized some of the cherry blossoms, leaves, and the bow, then printed them out twice. I fussy cut out the blossoms, leaves, and bow, and partial die cut out the wreath with a circle die, leaving the bow tails uncut. I fussy cut around the bow tails sticking out of the edge of the circle that was die cut, and fussy cut out other bow pieces to add dimension. Once I had everything cut out, I rolled on some Nuvo Glue Pen Large
adhesive to the bow pieces, and sprinkled on some Collegiate Garnet
glitter. I layered up the bow pieces with dimensional tape to give dimension. Here is a close up of the bow. Look how beautiful that Collegiate Garnet glitter is! Be still my heart!!
For my background, I ran some pink cardstock through my Cuttlebug in a leaf embossing folder. I then lightly swept my Versamark Ink Pad
over the raised portions of the cardstock, and sprinkled on some Pink Lady
embossing powder, and heat set it. This gave the background additional texture, dimension, and some extra sparkle and pizazz 🙂
I adhered blossoms to the wreath, and added more dimension by adding foam dimensionals. I rolled on some Nuvo Glue Pen Fine
adhesive to the wreath, flowers, and leaves, and sprinkled on two colors on the wreath: Peruvian Lily
,and Rose Gold
. I also added on Bubble Gum
to the blossoms and Luau Green
to the leaves. Here is a photo showing the wreath, cherry blossoms, and leaves.
Here is another shot of the card that shows some of the dimension. I have a thing for pink and for cherry blossoms, so this Build a Wreath
digi stamp set was the perfect set to use for a pink fix! I love how versatile it is and how much you can do with it.
Thanks for stopping by. Have a magical day!
