Hello readers! Today I am on the Birch Press Design blog and while I know there is a beautiful new release of the hot foils in the shop right now, I always love to use some of the "oldies but goodies." Everyone seems to always get caught up in what's the newest or latest and greatest product, but SOooo many of us haven't even used what we already own, so that's what I've been working on this month. Today's card features the beautiful Classic Sentimental Wreath stamp set and coordinating dies.
The base of this A2 sized card is made from 80 lb. Neenah Solar White smooth cardstock. This is my go-to white cardstock for e-v-e-r-y-t-h-i-n-g. On a 5 1/4" x 4" piece of white cardstock, I embossed it using the Blooming 3D embossing folder from Memory Box (a sister company to BPD). You guys, this folder is absolutely gorgeous! I cut a scalloped rectangle from white cardstock.
On a piece of lush green cardstock, I stamped the wreath first in pale green ink and then the leaf layers in lime green ink. I used the coordinating die to cut the wreath out. I adhered the wreath to the scalloped rectangle using 3M foam adhesive. I stamped two of the flower sprigs in purple ink and used the die to cut them out as well. I adhered the two floral sprigs to the wreath and then I tied a small bow with lilac ribbon and adhered the bow to the card using a glue dot. I stamped the sentiment "thank for everything" in Memento Tuxedo black ink. This sentiment is also part of the Classic Sentiment Wreath stamp set.
This is one of those cards that I say can be used for every type of occasion. I could easily swap out the sentiment for a sympathy, birthday or get well expression and create a variety of quick and elegant cards. I hope you have enjoyed the simplicity of today's card. Thanks for visiting and have a wonderfully creative day!
