Flower wreath with suspended greeting


On day 9 of Stretch your stamps 2 Julie Ebersole showed us how to do a really cool card: You build a wreath using flower stamps and once the wreath is stamped, you cut out the middle and suppend the greeting in the open inner part of the wreath. It is a really fun idea and such a cool project.


I love how – when the card is standing – you get the shadow of the greeting showing on the inside of the card. That is not something you often get on cards but it adds an extra dimension.


Because I liked the technique and the look of the resulting cards so much I did two similar cards just changing colours and accents. This pink version was actually the first card I did, not that it makes much difference 😉


While I decorated the orange version using half pearls I did this first card with stickles. I do like glitter but I didn’t think it was substantial enough and hence the half pearls on the 2nd card. For this first card I coloured the hello using the same ink I had used for the small flowers. I like that the colours match perfectly but the word became somewhat more delicate due to the paper having been soaked with ink.

    Begge er fine og jeg elsker når du skriver man “bare mangler at klippe/skære midten ud” for mig er det næsten angstprovokerende at skulle klippe “den vej”. =0) Men FINT blev det kan jeg se. God weekend herfra.

  3. Hvor er de kort flotte, dejlige farver, og sjov brug af de små stempler :0)

    Begge kort er blevet virkeligt flotte, Cecilie. Håber at jeg snart er frisk nok til at lave nogle kort til OCC. Er blevet helt hægtet af her i uge 2 og har misundeligt fulgt dine og andres kreationer.

    De er rigtig flotte begge to. Dejlige sommer friske farver. Og hvor er det flot udklippet. Jeg syntes også det at teksten hang så fedt ud, men må indrømme at jeg syntes udklipningen så tidskrævende og svær at få pæn ud. Men bør jo nok prøve på et tidspunkt, det ser ud til at være det værd.
