Marianne Floral Wreath

It's been a long time since a post has been added to this blog and as time goes on I'm beginning to realise how useful it is sometimes to have a record of what you've made, what was used to make it and who it was given to.  Most of the new items made since the last posting have been photographed so I'm going to attempt to try a catch up and record them here.  There are a lot of repetitions to come when inspiration and motivation went out the window but also because of a love of stitching on paper.

The first card to share was for a friend and was made using the following Marianne flower dies and a Tonic small flower punch to create a floral wreath.  

Marianne Collectables Flower Dies COL1323
Marianne Creatables English Roses LRO162
Marianne Craftables Circle Flower and Leaf CR1248


Spellbinder circle dies were used to cut and layer the sentiment which was printed from the computer and grand nestabilities circle dies were used to cut the base for the wreath.

To continue the jade green monochrome look for this card backing papers were chosen from the Nitwit Collection Snow Princess Solids.  A stitched border was added to the patterned papers to further frame the wreath.

Only a few extra embellishments were added as the flowers did most of the work on this card.  Along with ribbon, brads and pearls a few crystal stickers were attached to the centres of the small punched flowers.

Thankfully the process of creating a post hasn't changed so this hasn't been too challenging a task and hopefully I'll get back soon with some more cards to share.

Thanks for reading
