A Friend Like You...

The Wreath Builder stamp set from Gina K Designs is a set that I purchased a few weeks ago and finally had some time to play with last week. The concept behind it is that using a template and small images, you can create perfectly spaced wreaths! You definitely need a stamp platform for this to work properly. 

It took me a few tries to make a wreath the looked alright as the placement of the leaves and flowers does make a difference... but just abut any combination can make a decent looking wreath. However, the possibilities are endless! 

This is my very SIMPLE first effort... and I mean simple! I just stamped a wreath using 3 images and then added the small flower randomly afterwards. I cut the wreath exactly in half so I could add the centre section in an oval shape. That way, rather than creating a square card, I could create a standard size card. I love how everything is so perfectly centred! The sentiment and the tiny hearts are from the same wreath builder stamp set as the wreath images. 

I am entering this card in the following challenges:

Great job on the wreath builder...I did some Christmas cards using this technique and it does take some experimenting and placement of the stamps...yours came out beautiful. Thanks again for sharing with us at Double Trouble another one of your beautiful florals
