Clean & Simple Wedding Wreath

Today's project features the newly released Spring Wreath Die along with three of our new cardstock colors.

I started out by stamping the wood background from Dockside Backgrounds onto our Dove Grey cardstock in white. I just love the combo of white with this super soft shade of gray. However, it's the wreath that really steals the show! I cut the wreath out twice, once from vellum and another from Soft Honeydew and layered them together. I used a length of twine to wrap around the wreath and tied it in a bow at the top. For a little sparkle, I added some of my new favorite sequins from Pretty Pink Posh.

The flowers were die cut from our new Cashmere cardstock and stacked starting with the largest on bottom and ending with the smallest on top. A little Glossy Accents between each layer holds them together. I added another small drop of Glossy Accents to the top and sprinkled it with glitter. Once they were dry, I used my fingernails to bend up the "petals". To give the card a matching tag, I used many of the same elements and techniques along with a sentiment from Fresh Cut Wreaths.

I knew that I wanted to do something special for the sentiment as well and I am so happy with how this turned out! I stamped the "congratulations" sentiment from Fresh Cut Wreaths and embossed it in white on a strip of vellum. Guess what? I found my vellum tape runner! So, I was able to trim some banner edges, create a wave in the banner by sliding it along a pencil, and adhere it so that it retained the wavy pattern. LOVE!
