Good Sunday morning. I have a colorful die cut paper flower wreath card to share with you today that I made for this week’s Featured Stamper challenge over at Splitcoaststampers. The featured artist this week is Preethisc and I was inspired by her Loose Water Color Wreath card. I kept her wreath theme and color combination but used die cut flowers and foliage instead of stamps. I used Rubbernecker 5106D Mixable Flower Stack, 5109D Mixable Flower Stack, 5112D Mixable Flower Stack, 5147-10D Tiny Flower Buds, 5110D Small Leaf Group and 5027D Nested Square Scallop5027D Nested Square Scallop. The sentiment is from the 3032 Best Friends set.
The Scalloped and Purple Layer
- Cut the scallop layer using the largest die in the set and white cardstock.
- Cut the purple square layer 1/4″ larger than scallop layer.
- Apply strips of mounting tape to the back of the scalloped layer and attach to the purple layer.
- Apply strips of mounting tape to the back of the purple layer and attach to the 5.00″ square card base.
Forming The Flowers
- Cut one full set of each of the 5106D, 5109D and 5112D Mixable Flower Stacks and a set of the Tiny Flower Buds.
- Place the purple and pink flower sections face down on the molding pad and press down on the petals with the round stylus to curl them.
- Place the purple and pink flower sections face up on the molding pad and press down in the center with the small tipped stylus to push the petals up.
- Apply gloss accents to the flower centers and attach the sections together, offsetting the petals for a natural appearance.
- Use needle nose pliers to curl the petals of the yellow flower sections. Curl some petals backwards and some forward.
- Apply glossy accents to the yellow flower sections and attach them together.
Forming The Foliage Wreath Base
- Cut several sections of the Small Leaf Group.
- Apply glossy accents to three of the largest leaf sections and attach them in a secular formation on the white scalloped layer.
Completing The Die Cut Paper Flower Wreath
- Attach the three largest flowers over the ends of the three leaf sections using glossy accents.
- Tuck additional leaf sections under and around the flowers and attach with glossy accents.
- Attach the smaller flowers to the foliage using glossy accents.
- Apply glossy accents to the flower centers and attach pre made white and black Nuvo Crystal Drops.
- Stamp the sentiment on a strips of white cardstock using black Versafine and emboss with super fine clear embossing powder. Attach the sentiment inside the wreath opening using mounting tape.
