Hello Honey Bee friends! Our neighborhood is a newer one and the home next door is about to be finished so I’m going to need a card to give our new neighbors! I used the new Spring Wreath set along with a fun texture paste stenciled background for my card today. Of course, if you change the sentiment, this card is perfect for lots of occasions!
I made the background panel first so it would have time to dry. First I added color to my texture paste by mixing in a couple drops of Lost Shadow Distress Ink refill. Just put the drops on your craft mat, scoop out your texture paste and mix it up. I used a palette knife to spread the paste through the Salvaged Bricks stencil on a piece of 80# Neenah.
Next I stamped all of the images from the Spring Wreath stamp set onto 80# Neenah with Intense Black ink. I always stamp all of the images of a set so that I will have all of the options available for my card. I used my Copic markers to color the images. These are the colors I used:
- pink flowers: RV09, RV06, RV04, RV02
- blue flowers: BV08, BV04, BV02
- flower centers: Y19, Y08
- leaves: G24, G43, YG61
The sentiment is from the No Place Like Home set and stamped in Intense Black ink. I die cut it with the coordinating Honey Cut. I added foam tape strips just to the middle part of the sentiment since part of it will overlap the wreath.
Then I removed the backing of the foam tape and adhered the wreath, flowers, and sentiment to the card.
I just love this brick background for the bright and cheerful wreath! I hope I’ve give you some fun ideas for your card making too. Thank you for stopping by–keep crafting!
