Cherry Blossom Wreath

by Svitlana Shayevich

Hello, friends!

Svitlana here. I bet many of you are waiting for spring eagerly. And making spring cards can make this wait more bearable. I have one spring card idea to share with you today.

For my card, I used the Under the Cherry Blossom Tree Stamp Set and the set of coordinating dies. I created a wreath of cherry tree branches on my card.

I started off by making a card base out of a Parchment Cardstock. After that, I flicked some white paint onto it and put aside to let the paint dry.

Then I made 7 die-cuts of the same cherry tree branches out of a Solar White Cardstock. After which I stamped the branches onto the die-cuts. For each die-cut, I placed it into a negative space in the panel where one of the branches was cut out of, positioned a stamp layer and stamped it onto the die-cut. After that, I replaced the die-cut with another one and stamped again. I did this until I stamped the stamp onto each die-cuts. I repeated the same for the two other layering stamps of this image.

For stamping, I used the Jet Black, Dark Chocolate and Coral Berry Crisp Dye Inks.

Next, I adhered the branches onto the card forming a wreath. I used five branches to form the wreath. And then I trimmed some parts of two other branches and tucked them here and there in different parts of the wreath to make it more “circle-ish”.

I white embossed a sentiment from the You Are Stamp Set onto a Jet Black Cardstock strip and popped it onto the card.

I finished off by adding several white crystals.

Have a wonderful day!

Totally agree, making spring cards is a great way to hurry the season along. Even though I love all seasons and the change I am so tired of the cold weather right now…

I just bought this set and this project I think I could give it a whirl! You are so creative and I love seeing your posts! This set reminded me of the cherry blossom trees in Washington, D. C. (I grew up in the area and it gives me fond memories). I hope to make several cards with this set before we get back to the area; I wanted to give them to my Mom for mother’s day. Thanks so much for sharing this!!!

Svitlana! This is perfect – I was just browsing yesterday, looking for more inspiration to use this specific stamp and die set in my collection. I love the Spring feeling of the design but was artistically stuck. Love the way you create “outside the box”. Beautiful card!
