The card I have to share today could be for any time of year.  It is a sweet wreath with a gorgeous background.  The star of the card is between the wreath and the beautiful paper.


Stampin' Up!, Country Wreath, Cottage Wreaths, Shining Brightly, Best Label Punch, Jackie Beers


Stamps and Dies, and Punch

This fun wreath is super easy to create!  I used the Cottage Wreaths Stamp set to stamp the wreath in Crushed Curry Ink.  Next I stamped some of the extra bows with Old Olive Ink.  After die cutting the pieces, I cut apart the greenery to space it behind the wreath.  Both of the stamped images are the distinctive stamping where it shows texture along with lighter and darker areas.  I think this adds so much to the image.

The gorgeous and detailed bow is also from the Country Wreath Die Set.  The details are perfect when doing the bow from card stock.  There is also a solid die if you are cutting a stamped bow.  The last of the stamping is the simple sentiment.  Personally I love words on a wreath.  This was created with the Best Label Punch.  The words are from the stamp set.  And it tucks easily behind the bottom inner part of the wreath.


This gorgeous paper could also be the star of the card.  It is from the Shining Brightly Designer Series Paper.  And it is even prettier in person!   I wanted the DSP to really pop, so kept a semi monochromatic color scheme.  The card base of Night of Navy is perfect for the DSP.  To tie in the greenery of the wreath, I added a thin layer of Old Olive card stock.  And the Crushed Curry wreath mimics, somewhat, the gold in the DSP.  I love the combination personally and hope you do as well.


There are two things that help the look of the card.  The first is the layout.  I went with smaller layers to show more of the Night of Navy card base.  That larger area frames the beautiful DSP and wreath like art on a wall.  And the usual final touch is bliing!  For this one I added one of the Adhesive Backed Sparkle Gems to the center of the bow on the wreath.  With the gold in the DSP it really did not need much.
