You will need the following craft paper :
- mandarin orange card
- raspberry pink card
- Stick it! foam squares or dots
You will also need:
- Flower stamps - I used Funky Fossil, Funky Flowers
- An inkpad - I used Versafine Clair nocturne
- Colouring pencils - I used Miya oil pencils
- A die for the greeting - I used CUTplorations Life is Good
- Pearl gems
- A small piece of acetate
- Use a plate or bowl to draw a circle that is approximately 7" in diameter onto the raspberry pink card.
- Use a smaller plate or dish to draw a circle inside the first circle that is approximately 6".
3. Cut out the circles to make a ring. Your cutting does not need to be that careful as most of this ring will be covered by the flowers.
4. Stamp flowers onto both the mandarin orange and raspberry pink card. Be sure to use those scraps left over from cutting the raspberry pink ring.
5. Colour and fussy cut the flowers.
6. Adhere the flowers around the ring raising some on foam pads and others flat onto the ring.
7. Die cut a greeting in both colours of card.
8. Adhere the greeting to a small piece of acetate.
9. Adhere the acetate to the back of the wreath so that it hangs down below the flowers.
10. Finish off the wreath with some pearls and ribbons tied into a bow.
How easy is this project! It may take a while to colour and cut all those flowers, but it's such a relaxing thing to do.
You could use many other images to create a wreath like this - leaves, shells, Christmas or Halloween images are just a few ideas.
