Papertrey September Blog Hop Challenge

Wednesday, September 25, 2013

I've got a card to share with you for this month's Papertrey Ink Blog Hop. The theme is Wreaths, and I experimented a little and came up with something a little different for mine ;) I would love to hear your opinions on this creation!

So for the base of the wreath, I first cut out a ring using two Spellbinders circle dies and cardstock. Then, I wrapped PTI Raspberry Fizz Satin Ribbon around the ring, on a slight angle so that it overlaps each other and the cardstock cannot be seen. It was adhered to the card base using Score Tape.

The flowers are from Mini Blooms, and three of them I embossed using gold embossing powder (they look a little green in the photo). They were also attached using Score Tape (LOVE that stuff!).

I added some gold trim at the top...not sure if I like it. What do you think?? I felt like it needed something. Maybe a gold bow would have worked better...

***I am also entering this in the Moxie Fab World: All That Glitters is Gold Challenge!***

  1. Nicki, this is simply BEAUTIFUL! I love the pretty colors.

  2. So pretty! What a great use of that set

  3. Amazingly creative and so very pretty! Mini Blooms is such a versatile set and you definitely put it to great use here. Nice work!

  4. I really adore your card, Nicki and the ribbon wrapped wreath is perfection! The colors are lovely and the touch of gold really makes it that much more special.

  5. I like how this turned out, Nicki. It has the feel of a front-door wreath. I think the gold trim works well with the mini blooms. A bow would overwhelm those flowers.

  6. So pretty!! Love how you wrapped the wreath with ribbon and embellished it with die cut flowers!

  7. Hey Nicki! Thanks for linking this up to the All That Glitters is Gold challenge in the Moxie Fab World! I'm so glad you joined in on all the fun! :)

  8. How clever! Love your wreath - great job! Beautiful card!
