For today’s card I created and autumn wreath using the Beautiful Flowers 2 stamp set from Simon Says Stamp. I made this card to go along with the theme for my October 2018 Mail Call.
I started out by taking the leaf images from the stamp set and stamping them on Bristol Smooth paper with Versamark ink. I embossed them with a white embossing powder. Next I used Distress Oxide ink to blend color onto the leaves. I used two colors for each leaf. I picked out the colors Seedless Preserves, Candied Apple, Spiced Marmalade, Fossilized Amber, Bundled Sage, and Evergreen Bough. I used my Scan N Cut 2 to cut out all of the leaves.
Next I took a circle that I die cut of of Neenah Solar White card stock and stamped a sentiment on it with Seedless Preserves Distress Oxide ink. I popped the circle up onto a 5.5 by 5.5 Desert Storm card base.
I took all of the leaves that I created and glued them around the circle with Gina K connect glue to form a wreath. Next I stamped two more of the sentiments from the stamp set onto Gina K Plum Punch card stock and embossed them with white embossing powder. I popped up the first sentiment and glued down the second. The whole sentiment now reads “sending thanks for everything you do for me.”
To finish up the card I added some clear sequins.
