Welcome Divas, I am thrilled you have stopped by today. I am wanting to share with you my Dogwood wreath. I'm an old Missouri Show Me girl, so I'm going to show you how to make this beautiful, flowery card step-by-step!
Suggested card size is 5-3/4"x5-3/4"
MATERIALS LIST: COPIC® MARKERS:
4080J - Dogwood Blooms Digital Stamp Set E30, E33, Multiliner Brown - Stems
Hammermill® 100 lb. White Coverstock N0, N1- Shadows
Bazzill® Guacamole Cardstock RV00, RV custom, RV02, R59- Flowers
DCWV ® Blush Cardstock YG61, YG63, YG69, Multiliner Olive
Pale Pink Cardstock (From my Stash) YG69, Brown Multiliner, R59 - Centers
Silhouette® - card ornate frame
WeR® Nesting Circle Die Set
VersaMagic® Sea Breeze
VersaMagic® Hint of Pesto
Nuvo® Glitter Drops - White Blizzard
Nuvo® Crystal Drops - Bright Gold
Crafter's Square Pink Pearls
1/8" Iridescent Ribbon (6"-8")
Zot Dot® (1/2)
I started by laying out my page for two (2) different cards from the #4080J- Dogwood Blossoms Digital Stamp Set.
The wreath size to a 4-1/2" x 4-1/2" circle.
After starting to color I decided to double the wreath, so I printed it twice on Hammermill®
White 100lb. Coverstock.
Color as desired, I chose to use Copic® Markers.
Colors used are listed above.
Color Two (2) wreaths. Set the Cross to the side for later.
Cut the images apart. Cut one wreath out using the 4-3/4" WeR® Nesting Circle Die.
Fussy cut the blooms of one of the wreaths.
Use a shaping tool on a foam mat to shape the blooms.
Apply small dots of Nuvo® Crystal Drops - Bright Gold in the center of each bloom and let dry.
Apply VersaMagic® Sea Breeze on the edge of the wreath cut in a circle as shown.
Apply Nuvo® Glitter Drops White Blizzard and brush evenly to each petal.
Using Silhouette® & Card Ornate Frame, I sized the cut file to 5-3/4", deleted to ornate design, moved cardbase to the bottom, the next outline to the upper right and left the third outline. Cut 6-1/4"x12" rectangle of Guacamole green for cardbase at matt bottom. Cut 5-3/4"x5-3/4" square of Pale Pink and of the Blush.
Center and adhere the Pale Pink cut-out to the Guacamole green cardbase.
Center and adhere the Blush cut-out to the Pale Pink on the cardfront as shown.
Make sure the fold is on your left.
Center and adhere the wreath image to the Blush on the card front as shown.
Edge the Guacamole cardbase with VersaMagic® Hint of Pesto.
Make a small bow using 1/8" Iridescent Ribbon and adhere to the wreath between the blossoms using 1/2 of a Zot Dot®.
Adhere Pink Pearls around the edge of the image circle as shown.
OPTIONAL: I adhered two strips of the pink and a name plaque to the backside of the cardbase.
Edge your sentiment with VersaMagic® Hint of Pesto and adhere to the front of the card using foam tape.
Now you have a beautiful card perfect for a Birthday, Thinking of You, or any occasion....
