AH 266 - Floral Wreath Birthday

Welcome to Week 266 at Atlantic Hearts! 

A wreath can be used for any occasion - and a birthday is as good an occasion as anything else! The wreath was cut from the Flower Market cartridge - twice for layering purposes. The flowers and leaves all come from the Beautiful Friendship - Scrapbooking stamp set and were all fussy cut. I don't very often ink the edges of anything any longer but I did with all the flowers and leaves, just to make them stand out a little bit more. I also brushed the darker lines with the Clear Shimmer Brush but that isn't noticeable in the photo here. Gems were placed in the centre of each flower - either from the Make Waves collection or the Gold Pearls. 

The sentiment is from a retired stamp called Balloon Wishes. 

Come and join us at Atlantic Hearts and show us how you interpret the sketch shown above. You have until Sunday evening to link up your project.

  2. Hi Alyson,

    Ohhh I wish I had a wreath cut like this! It would be so versatile, as you said. I can’t believe you fussy cut each of these blooms out! What a pretty card in the end. I do wish I could see the shimmer - but I’m squinching my eyes and just KNOW its there! Sometimes its hard to capture with a camera. I hope you have a creative weekend.

  3. What a very pretty card Alyson. I love the Beautiful Friendship Stamp. I can't believe you fussy cut each of those flowers. You have such patience. I'm sure who ever receives this card is going to LOVE it. Take care


Thank you so much for leaving a comment - it truly makes me smile :)
