Bright New Day Wreath

Bright New Day Wreath

I am having so much fun with this set! Today, I thought I would do a traditional Rubber Stamp Tapestry wreath card. Floral peg stamps lend themselves so well to wreaths and borders, and this set, with its bold flowers and delicate sprig is just perfect for a summer wreath.

Instructions

Emboss, score, and fold blue card stock to A2 size (4 1/4″ wide x 5 1/2″ tall).

Cut a piece of white card stock to 4 1/4″ wide x 5 1/2″ tall.

Stamp a wreath in the colors included on the set card instructions. I like to get the outline of the wreath by stamping 5 points. If you think of the wreath as a clock, stamping in the lightest color first at 2 o’clock, 4 o’clock, 7 o’clock, 9 o’clock, and 11 o’clock. Then, fill in with the other colors, using those points to balance the colors. You will want to leave room for subsequent stamps and you can always go back and add more later where they are needed.

Fussy cut out the wreath and smudge edges with London fog ink.

Cut a piece of orange card stock approximately 3 10/16″ wide x 7/8″ tall.

Stamp the flower, leaf, sprig, butterfly, and sentiment in Emboss. Sprinkle with white embossing power and heat emboss. Add pearls to each end of orange paper.

Glue the wreath to the blue card base. Open the card up and using a circle cutter, cut a 1″ hole in the center of the wreath, cutting through the white card stock and blue card base. Smudge inside edge with London flog ink.

Glue the sentiment strip under the wreath.

Stamp the butterfly in black on a piece of yellow paper. Center it in the middle of the wreath and glue it to the inside of the card.
