Spring Floral Wreath

Hello Blogger Friends! Thanks for taking the time to stop and visit with the Charmed Life Blog on this first Saturday in February.
It's one of those lazy Saturdays here in my house. I have been catching up on email and watching some interesting and eye opening documentaries online. I have plenty of household chores that I wanted to get done. So hopefully before day's end I get to a few of them.
My card today is one that I created for my weekly DT post on the CottageCutz Blog.


I am using the  new Fresh Spring Floral, Lil Bunny Peeps and Spring Meadow dies. So let's get started with some details on how I created my card.
Step 1: Since I was creating a spring wreath, I chose some spring like colors for the card base and the wide rectangle frame I was using.
Sweet Sugarplum Base: 4 1/4" x 5 1/2"
Wide Rectangle Frame: 4 3/4" x 3 3/4"
White Rectangle Layer: 4 5/8" x 3 5/8"
Step 2: I cut the wreath, flowers and stems using garden green cardstock, sweet sugarplum and rich razzleberry cardstocks for the flowers.
Step 3: I started the frame assembly at this point because I wanted to attach the wreath directly to the white panel. Used double sided tape on the white panel to attach to the rectangle frame. I decided to stamp my sentiment before I started adhering the wreath. Just thought it would be easier that way. I used my MISTI since it's a clear stamp and sometimes you don't always get a good impression on the first try. And in this case, I did not so I stamped it twice.

Step 4: Continued the assembly by attaching the wreath, flowers, and leaf stem to the white panel. Once I started, I decided to make the leaf stems a lighter shade of green. I wanted them to stand out a bit.
Step 5: I thought the card needed something else in the way of an embellishment. So I cut a butterfly from the new Spring Meadow die for the wreath center. Then I also added a bunny for the frame corner. I cut this in the rich razzleberry cardstock using the new Lil Bunny Peeps die.
To complete my card I attached the frame to the card base. I was going for the tone-on-tone look so I used dimensional foam tape on my frame to lift it off the card base. It gives it a little more depth since the card base is also sweet sugarplum.
Well that's it for me for this post. So until next time........God bless.
