Good Sunday morning.  I have a pretty die cut ivy wreath with pink flowers to share with you today.  I used Rubbernecker Stamps Large Ivy, Mixable Flower Stack, Nested Rectangle X Stitch, Nested Circle and the sentiment from Best Friends.  I like how full the wreath is and how several of the leaves are extended out past the basic form. I think it looks more natural.

Come see how I made this die cut ivy wreath.

The Layered Base and Sentiment

  • Cut the two largest rectangle dies using white cardstock.
  • Apply double stick tape to the back of the largest rectangle and attach it to the card base.
  • Apply thin strips of mounting tape to the smaller rectangle and attach it to the card base.
  • Stamp the sentiment on a strip of white cardstock using Nocturne VersaFine Clair and heat set.
  • Apply double stick tape to the back of the sentiment strip and attach it to the green layer and set aside.

 

Come see how I made this lovely die cut ivy wreath.

The Die Cut Ivy Wreath

  • Cut a 1.75 circle to create the wreath base.
  • Create a ring base by cutting the center out of the circle using the next smaller die in the set.
  • Cut several sections of the Large Ivy and cut the branches apart to create two pieces.
  • Begin attaching the ivy branches to the wreath base using glossy accents.
  • Continue attaching the branches until you have completed the full wreath. 
  • You can check out my Garden Wreath tutorial to see step by step photos of how I create the my leafy wreaths.  The tutorial uses different branches but the concept is the same.

The Flowers

  • Cut three sets of flowers using pink cardstock.
  • Form the three smallest flowers in each set.
  • Place the flowers face down on the molding pad and use the round tipped stylus to roll over each petal.
  • Place the flowers face up on the molding pad and push down in the center to push the petals up.
  • Attach the three flower sections together using glossy accents.
  • Apply glossy accents to the back of each flower and attach to the wreath.
  • Finish each flower by attaching a pre made white Nuvo crystal drop in the center using glossy accents.

Finish the Card

  • Apply glossy accents to the back of the wreath and attach it to the card base.
  • Attach the sentiment layer to the lower left corner of the card base using double stick tape.

Come see how I made this pretty die cut ivy wreath.

I enjoyed making this die cut ivy wreath.  The large ivy branches are easy to work with and create a nice full wreath.   I like the simplicity of the wreath and sentiment against the all white background. .  Have you tried making a wreath?  They are so much fun and create a lovely dimensional arrangement for a card front.  Thanks for coming by and I hope you have a great day.
