Good Sunday morning all! How about a pretty wreath card for today's offering!  I started with a piece of white card and embossed it with the Stripes Embossing folder.  I decided to use the stripes horizontally instead of the usual vertical direction.  Using the dies from the Floral Bouquet set, I cut a bunch of flowers of varying sizes.  I used pastel coloured card (custard, powder pink and soft salmon card)  I added mounting foam to the backs of all the flowers then arranged them into a pleasing wreath shape.  I added a strip of white vellum across the inside of the wreath then added the Congratulations sentiment cut in black card.  I added a bee and a butterfly as accents.  I added a surround of Iced Snow on the base card to add some bling. The card was completed with white and black mat and layers.  Thee finished dimensions are 8"  x  8" in size.  All for now, Sue x

What a beautiful Sunday, not weather wise cuz it's still dark but blog wise, spring has sprung in the most beautiful way. I DO LOVE pastel shades I find them so restful, and I was so taken by an embossing folder last week I looked at another long standing designer's online shop that stocks your dies and folders and I found every folder there that I've loved for a while and the Stripes folder was amongst them as was the daisy one you used earlier on in the week, so I shall be ordering those with the money I made from the festive orders, I'm not going to sit on my hands any longer why should we, we deserve it lol.
Today's inspiration is a true inspiration and one that we would know our mentor and Fairycraft mother had put together, a Sue Wilson special.
Love to all, hope your day goes to plan xxx

Lovely card. I think I may copy this idea, I don’t have these Dies but many other of your flower dies. These would be good batch cards & can be used for everything including anniversary & Easter cards. Good to have in stock & the greeting can be added later. Thank you Sue.

Hi Sue
Happy Sunday everyone x
Oh my goodness - pretty in pastel. Those colours are so soft and spring-like. Love that embossing folder and love it used horizontally instead of vertically x
Sending you all happy thoughts x

Lisbeth said...

Hi Sue. I have to agree with you that this is a very pretty card. I love all those flowers and the way you have added dimension by raising some of them up on foam.

Hi Sue
Such a beautiful floral wreath and suitable for so many occasions, the stripes embossing folder is one of my favourites but I’ve never used it horizontally before so will have to try that in future

Love and hugs to everyone

Fluffycat said...

Hi Sue, a very pretty card and I love the pastel shades. The sentiment on vellum is lovely but I am still not sure about the Floral Bouquet flowers, I think I need to see them in real life before I could be happy with them.


BucksGirl said...

Hi Sue! Loving this card - it’s screaming Springtime at me, which in the fog, rain and cold of the worst month of the year, is an extremely welcome sight! Almost an Easter wreath! Beautiful! Take care, Colleen x

Judy Hollers said...

Hi Sue. Do like the background and striped embossing folder but am not sure about these particular flowers. For me I would choose an alternative. Xx

Rose in Chester said...

Hi Sue,
It is a bit pale for me, but that's the beauty about colours.

CCM said...

A great idea how to use the flowers from the Floral Bouquet set and not only. Thanks for sharing, Sue.

Hugs from Toronto to you all.
Stay safe and healthy.
