Today I am sharing one way on how to make a flower wreath for a card using easy die cuts.
There are several ways for how to make a flower wreath for a card and today I wanted to share one of the simplest – layering die cut elements with dimensional adhesive to add tons of texture, shape and depth. Once you try this out, you will find yourself using this super easy but oh-so-pretty method to add a classic element to your cards.
I used the same flower from the Stackable Flowers and Leaves #3 in three different complementary colors and laid out in three sets of three. This helps the eye to keep moving in that circular motion, letting the little extra details of the leaves and bitty flowers shine without distracting. I’ve done this before with tiny die cuts and again here with something holiday specific. Follow along while I show you all the details of the making of this pretty all occasion card.
- Use white cardstock to cut the Nested Rectangle Scallop with Holes and dark yellow cardstock to cut the A2 sized card base.
- Use a large circle die as a template and use a pencil to trace a circle on the scalloped layer to use as a guide to set the flowers to create the wreath.
- Apply strips of mounting tape to the back of the scalloped layer and attach it to the card base.
The Flowers and Leaves
- Use dark yellow, purple and rose red cardstock to cut the Stackable Flowers and Leaves #3 and bright yellow to cut the Small Flowers #4.
- Cut the leaves from the Stackable Flowers and Leaves #1 using green cardstock. Note: I certainly could have used the leaves from the #3 set but I especially love the leaves that I used.
- Place all the large flowers face down on the molding pad and form them using a large round stylus.
- Turn the large flowers face up on the molding pad and gently push down in the center with a medium sized round stylus.
- Place the small flowers face up on the molding pad and push down in the center using a small tipped stylus.
The Wreath and Sentiment
- Attach the large flowers to the card base using glossy accents. Pro Tip: Letting the flowers overlap each other when attaching them to the card base created a softer looking wreath.
- Punch out 1/4″ circles using white cardstock.
- Attach the white circles to the flower centers using glossy accents. Pro Tip: It’s much easier to attach the flower centers to the flowers once they are secured to the base.
- Randomly attach the tiny flowers to the larger flowers using glossy accents.
- Secure the tiny 1/8″ punched circle to the flower centers using glossy accents.
- Stamp the sentiment on a strips of cardstock using green ink, tuck it in between the flowers and attach to the base using a strip of mounting tape.
- Finish by randomly attaching tiny crystal sequins to the card base and flowers using glossy accents.
