Holiday Wreath in Coral Greeting Card

In the meantime, while the card panel was drying, I ran through the die-cutting machine the Layered Wreath Die Set to cut the outside of the wreath 2X out of white card stock as, well as the smaller accents. Which, you’ll see below how those small elements add a very cool dimension to the wreath.
So, after both wreaths and small elements were die-cut out of the white card stock, I stacked the backing of the first wreath to the other yet, I shifted the one on top a bit to create the impression of a fuller wreath. Then, I adhered the small elements here and there with a tiny amount of liquid glue to add even more dimension to the wreath. And, right after all pieces were adhered together, and the glue was completely dry, I curled up some of the leaves from the wreath. Lastly, I used a flat eye makeup brush to add WOW! Embossing Ink Pad Refill to the tips of the wreath. Because, I wanted a sticky surface for the glitter to stick to. As, you can see after that step, I sprinkled some WOW! Carousel Embossing Glitter and, I heat set it with the WOW! Heat Embossing Gun Tool.
After the heat embossing part, I came back to the inked card panel and I trimmed the edges of it a bit smaller than an A2 size… and then, I adhered the backing of the wreath with liquid glue, once the wreath was adhered, I treated the card panel with Embossing Powder Tool because, I was going to white heat embossing a sentiment from the Season’s Greetings Stamp Set with Opaque Bright White Embossing. Finally, to finish the card off, I adhered the backing of the card panel with foam mounting tape to an A2 top folding white card base and I embellished the wreath by adhering Glossy Berry Pearls here and there for a shiny look.
As my last embellishment, I decided to add a bow to the wreath so, I inked up a piece of Strathmore Bristol Smooth with the 2 lightest shades from the ink cubes set. Then, I stamped and white heat embossed the bow from the Season’s Greetings Stamp Set which, soon after the heat embossing, I die-cut the bow out of the inked piece of card stock with its coordinated die from the Season's Greetings Die Set. With that being said, I hope this card inspire you to give this design a try! As always, I appreciate the time you take to read my blog posts below you’ll find the supply list for the products used on today’s blog post.
Thank you and happy crafting, your time is valuable.
