Fall Series - Card #3 - Wreath of Leaves

This card was fun to make, a little time consuming, but definitely not hard. I made a cardstock ring as a base to glue my leaves onto (pictures below) and then just started layering them on until I had the wreath full. I used the “Small Stitched Leaves” from Lawn Fawn (love these dies! - link below) using various scraps of fall colored cardstock. If you form the wreath using the ring as a backing, you then have a separate wreath you can add to the card and pop it up using dimensionals, which gives it a more 3-D effect. The bow is tied with a double strand of linen thread.

I used the new “Into the Woods” DSP from Stampin’ Up, sponged it with Mossy Meadow ink, and then layered it onto Old Olive and Mossy Meadow cardstock for a finished 4-1/4 x 5-1/2 inch card. Layers were each cut ¼ inch smaller – Old Olive at 4 x 5-1/4 and DSP 3-3/4 x 5. The sentiment is from Teeny Tiny Wishes, punched with the Word Window Punch, sponged with Pumpkin Pie ink, and then layered on a Small Oval Punch and then onto a Scalloped Oval Punch in the same Old Olive and Mossy Meadow colors. I really like these two colors together! Supply list follows along with pictures of how to make the ring base for the wreath.

You are left with a ring for the base of the wreath.

I hope you enjoy making this card for fall! I have a lot of birthdays this fall, so this may turn into a birthday card instead of a Thanksgiving card, but either way I think it will work! Thanks for stopping by!
