Hello, here's another one of my here's one I made earlier posts. I made this card last autumn for my lovely Mum for her birthday, she loves pink and all pastel colours, so I came up with this Flower wreath design for her card.
The first thing I did was cut a ring out of cardboard that I
pinched upcycled from the recycling pile. I then cut another ring out of this cream paper with pastel spots, which I glued to the cardboard ring. I cut the paper using my wiggly edged scissors for a decorative finish on the edge of the wreath as some of it would be visible in the cards design.
I then used some beautiful paper flowers in contrasting greens and pinks to decorate the wreath, some of the flowers I doubled up for effect, I played around with the layout for a bit arranging and rearranging until I was happy. I then I stuck the flowers onto the card using glue dots (I do love a glue dot).
Then it was time for the fun bit adding some buttons and beads to the centres of the flowers, I then added some gem flowers onto the wreath which I thought helped balance it a bit and added a hanging ribbon to the top of the wreath which I fasten with double side tape to the inside of the card.
and Ta-Dah my card was complete.
Mum loved it so much that she has plans to put it in a frame.
