Afternoon all.

Good afternoon ...and how is your week going? I must admit I have had one of those days where it has been one step forwards and two steps back!!!!!......and not many jobs ticked off the list.....

Oh well.....at least I got the washing in just before it started to rain....I really needed to make some samples for TV today...one...that is all I have managed....good job I am not on the last minute.....mind you I do love the new stamps....and when you see them ....you will know why......

So today I thought I would share one of my favourite type of cards with you....a wreath card....now this was featured on C&C but I have waited until now to blog the ' how too' as it was one of our projects at Clarity Cumbria on Saturday....

It starts with a piece of gelli card and the smaller dare I say stubby ( sorry Mandy) stamp from the Shepherds Purse collection...

Stamp it in the middle at the top of the card..

Next turn the card 90 degrees and repeat, again....and again...And again....

Next the aim is to stamp into the gap that is left....once again...turn the card In between each stamping...

The couple from the Wee Folk wedding set look right at home inside...And notice I have made some shrink plastic doves....

Now....stamp onto vellum , using black ink and clear embossing powder....and heat then cut out....oh I do love a bit of fussy cutting...

Before attaching this to the wreath add some bakers twine...I used 3d glue gel......also I added a little colour using my Spectrum Noir Pencils...

Here is a closer look...

As usual I added a little charcoal shading....I don't think I make any cards without using charcoal these days...

I do hope you like this....and it would make a wonderful wedding card especially if you could match the colour of the vellum to the bridesmaid dresses....

Thanks for looking in today...must go , still jobs to tick off that list....

Hope your day is more productive than mine......

Love and hugs...

Jo. xxx
