10-29-2016; Fall wreath – Autumn Blessings
Want to make a wreath (for any season) and don’t have an image for it? Try using some twine, raffia or yarn and create your own.
Here I’ve used some jute twine. I coiled it around my hand 3-4 times and then tied it so it would stay.
The sentiment by TPC Studios is stamped onto a hand cut banner and tucked under the pumpkin.
I love this little pumpkin & die set by Lawn Fawn. Here I also did a couple of leaves and also added a tiny tendril. Yes, I used tape to hold those tiny dies in place.
The leaves were punched using a Martha Stewart punch. I used an assortment of fall colored card stock scraps.
I built the wreath before ever adding it to the card base. Each of the leaves has a gold Wink of Stella glitter ink drawn in as the leaf vein. Once it was all dry I added it to the matted card base. For me, this is the best way to build a card. I always seem to get spots or smudges on the base when I am working directly on it. I’m sure that never happens to you.
