Today I’m sharing a wreath card made with a clean and simple background. Wreath cards have become very popular in paper crafting and I love creating realistic miniature wreaths with die cut paper flowers and foliage. For this card I used the Rubbernecker Mixed Flower Stack, Small Flowers #3, Large Ivy, Wreath Set and Inside Scallop Nested Set.
The Card Base
- Use pink cardstock to cut an A2 sized card base and white cardstock to cut the Inside Scallop layer.
- Apply strips of mounting tape to the back of the white layer and attach it to the card base.
- Note: Popping the white layer up with mounting tape instead of attaching it flat to the card base adds interest and dimension to the card.
The Wreath Base and Ivy
- Cut the round wreath base from the Wreath Set using green cardstock.
- Use green cardstock to cut out eight sets of ivy.
- Place the ivy sections face up on the molding pad and push down in the center of each leaf using the leaf tool. Note: The leaf tool is one of several tools that comes in the Sizzix Paper Sculpting Kit.
- Cut each ivy branch in the middle to create two smaller branches.
- Begin attaching ivy branches to the base using glossy accents and over lapping the branches all the way around to fill in the wreath.
- Cut five sets of the Mixed Flower Stack using pink cardstock.
- Use three of the smaller flowers in the set to create the flowers.
- Place the flower sections face down on the molding pad and form them using a round stylus.
- Place the flowers face up on the molding pad and push down in the center of each using the small tipped stylus to push the petals up.
- Attach the three flower sections together using glossy accents.
- Cut two sections of the Small Flowers using pink cardstock, place the flowers face up on the molding pad and form them using the small tipped stylus.
Complete the Wreath Card
- Use glossy accents to attach the large flowers to the wreath base.
- Once the large flowers are attached tuck a few more ivy branches around the wreath and allow them to stick out of the main circle design These extra ivy branches will create a more natural looking wreath.
- Fill in the wreath with the smaller flowers and attach them using glossy accents.
- Complete the wreath card by applying glossy accents to the back of the wreath and attaching it to the card base.
- Note: Check out my Paper Flower Wreath step by step tutorial if you would like to see photos of how I made this wreath. The wreath was made using different flowers and foliage but the steps are the same.
When I make a wreath card I most always make them with a simple background so the wreath is the main focus of the card. I have eighty wreath cards saved in my Wreath Category. Some of my favorites are Wreath Cards for Spring, Wreath Christmas Card and Clean and Simple Paper Flower Wreath. And, Pinterest is full of stamped and die cut wreath cards. Thank you for coming by today and I hope you have a safe and happy day.
Here are the dies used for my card.
