Floral Wreath Mother’s Day Card

Floral Wreath Mother’s Day Card

Floral Mother's Day Card yDSC_0360

This Mother’s Day card features stamps from the “Circle of Spring” set by Stampin’ Up.  I really love this delicate wreath image and chose to keep the layout simple to highlight the wreath.

I created a faux wood-grained background by scoring a piece of white card stock with my Martha Stewart Scoring Board and then swiping Papertrey Ink Soft Stone ink across the surface.  I also used Gina K Designs Peach Bellini and Ocean Mist card stock along with the white.

I created a cut file of the wreath with my Silhouette.  Then I stamped the image onto the die cut with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored it with Copic Markers (E93  and B00).  I know, it’s a bit weird that I chose blue for the leaves, but I LOVED these two colors together!

I created the “ribbon” with the “Alison’s Ribbons” die by Cheery Lynn Designs and used a die from the “Classic Squares (large)” set by Spellbinders for the greeting block.  (The mats were cut with my trimmer.)  The finishing touch was a “string” created with a thin strip of the Ocean Mist card stock and a jeweled brad by Recollections.

Thanks for checking out my card project!

  1. Beautiful card. I love the wood grain background to which you hung that pretty wreath. And, the peach colors are super with it.
