Turns out I like them to dress up wreath dies. Here are my results.
supplies: white, black and green cardstock, MFT (retired) Spring Wreath die, Floral Elements and matching dies, Memory Box Big and Little Words, Tim Holtz (retired) Doily embossing folder
It's such a shame that this doily embossing folder has been discontinued - I love the subtle effect it has to make a lovely frame around something on the smaller side like this wreath die. BUT, if you have a doily die, you could emboss it for the same effect!
I always like a wreath against planking, so that's where card #2 went.
supplies: white and kraft cardstock, Craft Consortium Wood Textures plank dp, Tim Holtz Funky Wreath die, Floral Elements and matching dies, Memory Box Big and Little Words
This grapevine wreath cut from kraft and the planked background gives this a bit of a masculine look.
This last card is definitely not masculine!
supplies: white, dark green, and pink cardstock, Sunny Studio Eyelet Frilly Frame cover dies, Tim Holtz Funky Wreath, MFT (retired) bow die from Spring Wreath set, Floral Elements and matching dies, Memory Box Big and Little Words
The wreath I used on this one is from the same Tim Holtz Funky Wreath set, except it has leaves, so I cut it in green again. And I added a little die-cut bow to the mix on this one.
I had a fun couple of days putting these together - do you have a favorite?
