Bouquet Blooms Card for the Sisterhood of Crafters

Sweet Wreath Card Made from Bouquet Blooms by Stampin' Up!

 

It’s time for a new challenge at the Sisterhood of Crafters and I know that you will want to play along with this one! It’s a favorite – “Flowers” chosen by Sistah Diane. This month I am trying to play with the stamp sets that are about to retire from my Stampin’ Up! collection. Bouquet Blooms is a unique bundle with framelits that can be used to make a gatefold card. I just had to have that, of course! I actually made a gatefold card with it last week for a graduation card but forgot to take a photo before I gave it to a very sweet young woman. Oh well! This card was made with the floral spray that was stamped and cut to make a wreath.

My Secrets to Making This Project

  • This 6″ square card came together pretty easily, thanks to the coordinating framelits. I stamped the flowers in Sahara Sand – my “go to” neutral ink color. It has a greenish cast to it that is just so wonderful!
  • Once all 5 stamped images were cropped with the coordinating framelit, I laid them onto the designer paper I chose from the Subtles designer paper stack. I used Press’n Seal onto top and rubbed it onto all of the exposed paper. Then, I lifted it up off the paper and continued with setting up the card base.
  • The DSP was embossed with the Quilt Top embossing folder, then adhered to Whisper White cardstock. Both layers were adhered to Blushing Bride 12″x12″ Cardstock that was cut to 6″x12″ and scored at 6″.
  • I stamped the sentiment onto Blushing Bride cardstock, cut with a 2 1/2″ Circle Punch. The back of the wreath was covered with dimensionals, laid over the sentiment and adhered to the card base. After seeing it, I decided to stamp “Friend” once more onto WW in Blushing Bride ink then cropped with the Bunch of Banners die for a little more detail.
  • The smaller flowers were stamped in Blushing Bride ink and cut with framelits. They were adhered to the wreath with glue dots after curling the petals just a bit.
  • The wreath was decorated with pearls, enamel dots and a bow made with Satin Stitched Ribbon.
  • Ok, you know me – it still needed a little more LOL! I took linen thread, Whisper White baker’s twine and tied it onto the card. By adding a glue dot under the knot, I was able to add a small piece of Silver Mini Sequin Trim into the knot before securing it. Last touch was a silver leaves trinket!
