Hello! It’s officially fall… the leaves are changing in Wisconsin. I can’t believe it is here already. It’s time to get with the new season and embrace it. Yes, I’m a lover of Summer so this is a hard change for me! Living in Wisconsin, on a lake, I love the summer season and all it has to offer. But, not everyone agrees with me. So for all you fall lovers, here it is… a fall wreath filled with happy thoughts!
To make this 5″ X 7″ card, I started with a 5″ X 7″ card base made from 80lb Neenah Solar White cardstock. I added die cut leaves in two designs from the die set by Trinity Stamps called, Wildflower Clippings Die set (buy Wildflower Clippings Die set at Simon Says Stamp). I cut two of every color in both designs. I used two colors of orange and two colors of aqua – one light and one darker shade of each.
Alternating the colors and die designs, I attached the clippings in a circular shape to create a wreath. I used HBS Precision Tip Glue to attach them to the card base. I used a fine tip marker to add black dots around them to create fullness and an airy feeling. For sparkle, I added Melanite Magic Rhinestones around the leaves. These embellishments are beautiful and the perfect deeper teal color accent to this wreath. I used the glue to attach them.
Finally, I stamped the phrase, “happy thoughts” from the Supporting Script Sentiments stamp set, right below the wreath to finish the look. I love this card and I really love how fast it went. It’s a quick card with a whole lot of happiness to share!
