Hi everyone! I’m just popping by to share a card using one of the best stencil ever created: the wreath builder by Gina K Designs! If you haven’t gotten your hands on one of these yet, I suggest you add it to the top of your wish list. I’ve created many cards over the years using this template. It creates the most perfect wreaths with any image you have your heart set on.
Since it’s so popular, it’s a little hard to find in stock but be sure to hit the “Notify Me” button on the website so you know once it comes in. Or if you already have this gem in your collection, this is great inspiration for you!
I think this may be one of my favorites cards I’ve created with the wreath builder so far. Gina has many stamp sets dedicated for the wreath builder but you can use any stamp in your collection that fits in the template.
I’m using images from the original Wreath Builder stamp set and Take Care stamp set. The leaves are stamped in Grass Green and Fresh Asparagus and the small flower in stamped in Peach Bellini. I think what really pulls this together is the two different shades of leaves.
While I love the regular size ink pads for ink blending and techniques, I always reach for the mini ink cubes when using the wreath builder. It’s just easier to hold and stamp the smaller images.
In the center I have a sentiment from the You Get Me stamp set stamped in Obsidian Ink.
I was able to absolute perfect placement but using the guide that now comes with the wreath builder stencil. It’s so helpful when lining everything up!
I stepped up the card a little by adding some jewels to the center of my flowers.
I love the look of a stitched edge so I used the Master Layouts 3 to die cut out a card front from Grass Green cardstock. Then I added my stamped panel on top with foam tape to give it dimension.
So simple and quick! This card literally took me about 10 minutes to put together.
Hi, M –
I have a wreath builder and this is a good kick in the booty to get mine out and use it! Gorgeous, classy card, Mindy!
