Like most of my cards, this is a 5″ x 7″ top fold. I created lots of layers by matting the designer papers on the Spring Farmhouse Basics papers. This plain, cardstock is perfectly matched to the collection color palette, so everything harmonizes beautifully. It’s also lightweight, so you can mat your layers without making a 2 pound card…something I am famous for!
Simple Stories Spring Farmhouse Floral Wreath Card: Creating the Wreath Element
To create the wreath for this card, follow these simple steps:
Next, die cut a second wreath from the green paper in the Simple Stories Basics collection.
Now, layer the two wreaths with the green wreath on top. Adhere them slightly off center so that the peach wreath peeks through, adding a sort of shadow effect.
Then place small pop dots on the back side of the leaves. Center and adhere over the 3″ x 4″ focal image.
I dug through my stash of Prima Flowers, and found these Georgia Blues flowers were a great color match. To add a little more texture, I found some retired Petaloo Hydrangea blossoms in my stash that worked great. A Champagne Wrinkled Ribbon bow adds the perfect shabby chic vibe.
Simple Stories Spring Farmhouse Floral Wreath Card: A Peek inside
The inside is finished with more designer papers, and a blank panel to add a little personal greeting. If you’d like to purchase this sweet card, it was still available in my Etsy shop at the time I wrote this post.
