Arrange A Wreath - Perfect for any Season

I've been having so much fun creating beautiful cards for every season using the Arrange a Wreath Bundle!  This bundle is featured in the March Your Creativity Awaits Monthly Card Kit.  If you haven't heard of my monthly card kit, it's a kit mailed to you that includes the stampset and Make and Take Kit to make 8 beautiful cards (2 of 4 different designs) plus the PDF instructions.  There is more information below!

Today's card uses the Rainbow Glimmer Paper to create a beautiful wreath and flowers.  Isn't this pretty!


Instructions

  1. Cut Basic White Thick cardstock 5 1/2" x 8 1/2" and fold in half to form card base.
  2. Cut Basic White cardstock 4" x 5 1/4" and emboss using the Tasteful Textile Embossing Folder.
  3. Adhere to the card base using Stampin' Seal.
  4. Cut out wreath from green/blue end of Rainbow Glimmer paper.
  5. Cut out 6 petals from the pink/purple end of Rainbow Glimmer Paper.
  6. Adhere one petal on top of another using a Dimensional - make 3 flowers.
  7. Adhere the 3 flowers on the bottom right hand side of the wreath using Dimensionals.
  8. Cut 6 pieces of Linen Thread about 3" long.  Bundle together and tie a single knot.  Adhere to card base under the flowers using a Glue Dot.
  9. Cut Basic White cardstock 1" x 2 1/2"
  10. Punch tag end.
  11. Stamp sentiment using Magenta Madness ink.
  12. Adhere to the bottom right hand side of card base using Dimensionals.
  13. Adhere embellishments to 3 flowers.

    This week’s challenge #FF0079 is World Frog Day Day. Isn't that a fun day to celebrate!.

    Your goal is to simply use three or more items from the inspiration list on your project and link up! #festivefridaychallenge  At Festive Friday, you do not need to actually celebrate the occasion. I hope you’ll make a card, scrapbook page or 3-D project and join us. You don’t need a blog to enter Festive Friday. Check out this link on how you can play along with this challenge. If you want help entering, please email me at stampinwithmelva@gmail.com and I’d be happy to help you! 


    For today's challenge I selected green, twine and insects to create this pretty card featuring the Dandy Garden Laser Specialty Paper.  I hope you will join us in our challenge this week. I can’t wait to see what YOU create.

    6. Adhere to card base using Stampin' Seal.
