Spring Wreath Card | Spellbinders + Scrapbook.com

I know Punxsutawney Phil just saw his shadow and we're supposed to be in for 6 more weeks of winter, but I'm in the mood for spring. Aren't you?! With that in mind, I pulled out some beautiful new dies from Spellbinders called the Four Seasons Wreath Element Dies to create a spring wreath card.

To get started, I created the background of the card, using the Spellbinders Symmetry in Space Die. Yes, this is a die, but I embossed with it using the Spellbinders Platinum 6 Die Cutting and Embossing Machine and appropriate plates. Instructions on how to do this can be found on the base plate of this machine.


Once the background was finished, it was time to work on creating the focal point of the card. To do this, I used the Spellbinders Four Seasons Wreath Element Die Set. This set contains 4 die strips with shapes that are perfect for each season. I die cut the shapes from the Spring and Summer die strips from white cardstock. I then inked them up using Distress Oxide Ink. I used a foam blending applicator to apply more ink to the edges than the middle. I really love the subtle bit of texture from the embossing and by inking the shapes, it really helps bring out the embossed design.

After I had inked all of the die cuts, I cut a circle from white cardstock to use as a "wreath". I centered the sentiment stamp in the middle of the circle and stamped it with black ink.

I then began adhering the die cuts around the circle, using the edge of the circle as a guide for placing the shapes. I used double sided foam adhesive on some of the flowers and the butterflies to give it more dimension.
