Irish Blessing Wreath

>> Wednesday, March 13, 2013

Hi Stampers! 

Jennifer back again today to share a wreath card I made with you.  This is the second card I've created for current challenge here on the DRS Blog which is to use Shamrocks or 4 Leaf Clovers.  

I started by stamping and coloring the Shamrock Circle (619L) and then I fussy cut it.  Next I adhered 3 different layers together for the card front.  The top panel was dry embossed, the middle panel was decorated with a border punch, and the bottom panel was stamped with the Troubles Be Less Greeting (693F). Then I used a circle Nestability die to cut the hole in the center and added brads to the far left side as shown.  

A piece of green cardstock was used for the 4.25" x 5.5" card base.  I used the card front as a stencil and traced the center circle with a pencil on the card base so that I could make sure that I die cut a hole in the card base to match the hole in the card front.  The card front was then adhered to the base and the Shamrock Circle was adhered over the top of the opening.  I completed the card front by adding a beautiful white satin bow to the top of the wreath.

I used a piece of white cardstock for the inside panel and stamped only the middle portion of the Shamrock Blessings 3" Giga Oval (461K) in the area inside the wreath.  This allowed the words "An Irish Blessing" to be seen in the middle of the wreath when the card was closed.  I had a lot of fun making this and I hope you enjoyed seeing it!
