Happy Friday Friends!! I am on the Butterfly Reflections, Ink Blog today sharing a card perfect for Easter, or anytime really. I am using the Gina K Wreath Builder Stamp & Stencil for my project. Are you familiar with these products? They are so clever and easy to use!
I started by placing my Gina K Wreath Builder Template Stencil in my Original MISTI. Next, I placed a 4x4 inch piece of white cardstock in the stencil. I used the Gina K Original Wreath Builder Stamp Set for all of my floral images. I just kept adding more and more images to build my desired wreath. The stencil keeps everything lined up perfectly, so easy! Here is what my wreath looked like as I was building it:
To make my A2 card, I cut my 4x4 wreath in half. I attached my wreath to the top and bottom of my card mat. Next, I added a white and gray strip of cardstock to the center of my card (this covers the gap that was created from cutting my wreath in half).
For my sentiment, I used the Hello Bluebird Spring Banner Script Stamp Set stamped onto a die cut circle. I attached my sentiment to my card front with foam adhesive. Lastly, I attached everything to my A2 card base. While I used an Easter sentiment, any sentiment you might need will work great with this technique.
For my square card I followed the same steps as above. Though rather than cutting my wreath in half to make an A2 card, I created a 4x4 square card. Here is my completed wreath:
I once again used the Spring Banner Script Stamp Set for my sentiment. Though this time I attached everything to a square card base.
Have you tried the Gina K Wreath Builder? It is definitely something you need in your card making supplies. It obviously works great with the Gina K Wreath Builder Series, but the stencil also works great with any small image. You will have fun using it!!
Wishing you all a Blessed Easter weekend,
