Hi everyone, thank you for stopping by. I hope you're having a great day!
Today's card is inspired by one of my upcoming Christmas cards - I had some time before heading to my Mom's house for our Thanksgiving dinner (Canada) and I had picked up a potted chrysanthemum in these beautiful fall colours and I wanted a card that went with it.
I hesitated a lot before getting the Tiny Wreath die because I like to get as much use as possible from a set and something that is only used at Christmas makes the decision a little harder. Since making this card I have a million ideas for all year long, and I cannot wait to get started on them.
To begin, I used the "Tiny Wreath" die set from Lawn Fawn to cut out to pieces of deep yellow and two pieces of orange cardstock. I then used the bow die to cut two sparkling bows. I offset the wreaths and used some liquid glue to keep them together, then set those aside to dry.
I stamped the smaller sunflower from Lawn Fawn's "Our Friendship Grows" stamp set using Memento Tuxedo Black ink on 110lb Copic-friendly cardstock and then coloured them with Copic markers. I chose the smaller of the sunflowers because they are about the same size as the tiny wreath. Coincidence? I think not. Great job Lawn Fawn!!
I didn't have a rusty red piece of cardstock handy so I trimmed down a piece of the white and used Rusty Hinge Distress ink to get the colour I wanted. I adhered that piece to a moss green piece of cardstock and mounted those to the front of a 4x4" top fold card base.
I then used some liquid adhesive to add my wreaths and sunflowers. To finish it off, I used the Spectrum Noir clear overlay to add some shimmer to my flowers.
I hope you like today's card and are inspired to create something of your own. If you haven't already, please follow me on the right side bar or over on Facebook, so you don't miss any future posts. Drop me a line in the comments section below and let me know what you think.
