Hi everyone! I needed a birthday card for stamp club yesterday afternoon so I got up determined to use some stamps and dies I hadn’t used yet! That was a decision in and of itself! lol
I settled on this Twig Wreath set from Papertrey Ink. Watch out though if you buy it, the dies aren’t open. So that’s a lot of time spent making templates to cut what you stamped! ugh.
I did an ink smooshed background with Fossilized Amber Distress ink on Watercolor paper. I linked to the paper section of SLS. WOW… look at all the options Cindy has to offer! Then stamped the images in Picked Raspberry, Broken China and Peeled Paint Distress inks.
I used mounting squares on the flowers and glued the wreath down with Mono Multi glue. Tied on some twine.
You’ll notice the edge around the perimeter of the card. I use an Avery Elle Rectangle die that is the exact size of the card-base… I love the finished look it gives the card. I don’t see it as still available to link to though. THIS set from Simon Says Stamp shows the largest die is the size of a card front though.
