Instructions

Cut orange card stock to 8 1/2″ wide by 5 1/2″ tall, score in the middle, emboss, and fold.

Cut a 3″ by 3″ square from the white card stock. Punch corners.

Lightly brush rubber cement on a 1″ circle and stick in the center of the 3-inch square, this will be your mask for the wreath.

Stamp the Mini Flower in burgundy, stamp a second time without re-inking. Stamp the Tiny Flowers in autumn leaf and then again without re-inking. Stamp again in sage. Stamp the Tiny Leaf in green tea. Stamp the Mini Branch in gray flannel.

Brush edges of white card stock with bamboo leaves ink and glue to a piece of green card stock.

Run the rotary piercing tool along the edge of the white card stock, stop near edges and you’ll pierce around the edges by hand.

Thread needle with 2 strands of embroidery floss and stitch along the edge of the white card stock, using the punched holes as a guide (you’ll punch through the white card stock with your needle).

Run through an embossing machine to flatten. You’ll have to run your fingers over the threads to bring them “back to life.”

Cut along the green card stock with decorative scissors and scuff edges.

Glue the green card stock to the orange card stock base.

Stamp the Jumbo leaves, mixing the Memento inks on each stamp. Fussy cut and glue together in a bunch.

Punch a tag shape and cut to resize if necessary. Tie with a ribbon and glue to leaf bunch and glue to card.
