Hey Hey! Allison here today, loving these mid-week vibes and bringing you this spring wreath card that only LOOKS difficult to make. 

Don’t you love it when you can get different uses out of your crafting supplies? I love challenging myself to look at each product and find different and fun ways to use the items. It helps me stay inspired and sometimes busts me out of a creative rut. I used this Winter Wreath set die this week, and by changing the color of the holly berries to a bright yellow it brightened up this wreath and gave it a spring feel. Not sure how many of you are buried in snow at the moment, but spring is sounding pretty darn good right about now. 

This card was so fun to make. If you want to get creative with me, follow these simple steps to recreate this card. 

Step 1 – On a sheet of white card stock I die cut the holly leaf approximately 20 times. I coloured the leaves with copics in the colours YG17, and YG03

Step 2 – I die cut the holly berries approximately 7 times and coloured with copics as well in the colours YG03 for the stem and Y35 for the berries. Rubbernecker Blog img_5458

Step 3 – On a new sheet of white card stock I used the largest Nested rectangle scallop die for the base of my card. I then die cut one of the Nested circle dies towards the top center of the panel.

Step 4- I stamped the sentiment Thinking of you in black Versamark Ink and heat embossed in clear towards the bottom of the panel.

Step 5- Starting left to right begin glueing down the holly branches alternating between the leaves and berries until you have gone around the opening of the circle. I snipped off a few leaves and randomly glued down some falling pieces with dimensional tape. Your top panel is done at this point.

Step 6- I attached foam tape to the back of the panel and glued down to my card base. I added a Bird house die cut to the Center of the wreath and coloured in with copics in the colours E35,33,31 And Y38.

The end product was even better than I imagined in my head. I’ve got my eyes set on spring vibes and will give you a different version of this wreath next week, so stay tuned. I hope you enjoyed my card this week and hope it inspires you to create one as well.

Hugs, Allie
