Happy Tuesday!!!! That means I have a fabulous technique to share with you today and this one is amazing!!!! It uses lots of my favorite items – embossing folders, bling (Silver Foil), and ribbon!
Isn’t the Silver Foil just amazing? The best part is there is no Silver Foil waste because you cut out the wreath from the layering piece of foil! I love using up all scraps and pieces!
SUPPLIES NEEDED: Silver Foil (or Gold Foil), Wonderful Wreath Framelits, Embossing Folder, Big Shot, Cardstock, Stamps, and Ribbon
You will start with a piece of Silver Foil measuring 3-3/4″ x 3-3/4″! Lay the wreath framelits in the center and run it through the Big Shot. Be sure that it is in the center because you will be using the leftovers to layer on your card! Now that you have your wreath cut out, you will place it in the Embossing Folder of your choice. I used the Perfect Polka Dot Embossing Folder in the one above and Stylish Stripes in the one below!
Now you can start to assemble. Add some Snail Adhesive to the corners of a piece of cardstock measuring 3-1/2″ x 3-1/2″. For the one at the top, I used Night of Navy and for the one just above I used Lost Lagoon! Then you will adhere that to your Silver Foil that you used to cut the wreath out of. Add some Stampin’ Dimensionals to the back corners of the Silver Foil and attach to the top portion of your card base. Then you will add Stampin’ Dimensionals to the Wreath and attach that to the center of your square. Now you can pick the ribbon of your choice to add to the top of your wreath. For the card at the top, I used Whisper White Organza Ribbon and for the card just above I used Lost Lagoon Silky Taffeta Ribbon! On the bottom you can put the greeting of your choice. For one card at the top, I used Christmas Bliss Stamp Set and Modern Label Punch. For the card just above, I used the Watercolor Winter Too Stamp Set! The card pictured below uses the Bloom with Hope Hostess Stamp Set because I wanted a Birthday greeting that was scrolly and elegant like the card! I am loving this card idea and can’t wait to make more!
