Good Sunday morning! I’m writing this rather early on Sunday… and it isn’t daylight yet :O) I love sunrises – do you?They just start my day in a perfect place. Today’s card is another Cottage Wreaths bundle – this time as a slimline card. I’m having trouble moving on to other bundles, can you tell? This is pretty simple, but simplicity is a good thing.
The DSP really sets off the wreath, stamped in Real Red ink. The DSP is Boughs of Holly… back to the wreath. This is a distinctive stamp so it has these wonderful variations in shading that really show in the wreath. The greens behind the wreath are small die cut leaves from Garden Green scraps -there are four of these dies in the Country Wreaths Dies so it’s easy to die cut several at a time, and I did just that :O) The bow is also die cut from Garden Green card stock and is adhered with mini dimensionals. Let me show you the back of the wreath before I added it to the card front.
You can see nine small leaves attached to the wreath – I was able to do that by using Stampin’ Seal on the back of the wreath, add the leaves (looking from the front of the wreath) then add dimensionals over that. This helps hold the leaves in place even more. Back to the wreath front… I added several Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the wreaths, and a single larger jewel on the bow.
The sentiment banner comes from the Hope & Peace stamp set and was stamped in Soft Suede ink on Thick Basic White and die cut with the banner from Natural Prints Dies. Don’t you love the mix of fonts in this sentiment? The ribbon is attached with tear & Tape then dimesnionals to add to the card front . You can see I added two Red Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the banner. Here’s a look at the back of the banner.
Now to put the card together… card base Thick Basic White cut 7 1/2 x 8 1/2, scored on the short side at 3 1/4. The layers are both from Boughs of Holly DSP: red is 3 1/8 x 8 1/8, the Soft Suede is 2 7/8 x 7 7/8.
The sentiment comes from Cottage Wreaths stamp set and is stamped in Soft Suede ink on the Basic White panel. The frothy leaf spray is stamped in Garden Green ink – and also comes from Cottage Wreaths stamp set – in the opposite corners. Layers: Boughs of Holly DSP 6 x 3 1/8; Basic White 5 3/4 x 2 7/8.
The envelope is one of very own Stampin’ Up! Slimline Envelopes in White. I simply added a 3/8″ strip to the bottom front and nothing else. Want to take a peak at the card again?
I may have told you I held a card class Thursday – and guess what the bundle was – yep… Cottage Wreaths! Here’s a photo of three of the cards made that day.
The DSP here is Cottage Garden DSP and the colors are So Saffron, Basic Gray & Garden Green.
