Who else loves a great wreath stamp! I am obsessed with them, and pretty much have one for every season! But then Kerry from Ink Hill Revival got me thinking about stretching my supplies and I was like… umm why not use the tiny flowers from stamp sets, and make my own wreath! So after a little coloring and A LOT of die cutting, here’s what I ended up creating!
To create this card, I started by stamping the poinsettias and holly leaves from Honey Bee Stamps’ Riding By…Holiday Style stamp set with copic friendly ink and coloring them using copic markers. Next I stamped the detailed leaves with two shades of green ink and die cut ALL the images!
To assemble the card, I started with a grey card base and added a maroon sheet from the Vintage Holiday paper pad, which I trimmed down to be a little smaller than than an A2 size, and die cut it using the Pierced Fancy Flakes Cover Plate. I cut a circle using the Sweet Stacks : Circle die from a sheet of pattern paper from the same pad and embossed a sentiment from the Bitty Buzzwords : Holidays stamp set.
I finished off the card by adhering the die cut florals and leaves using liquid adhesive along with foam tape to add some dimension to create the “wreath” around the sentiment. And of course I added some jewels to the finished card.
I hope that this inspires you to create something crafty at the end of your day! If you do, and share on Instagram, be sure to tag me (@everydayengineered) and Honey Bee Stamps (@honeybeestamps)! We love to see what you create!
