Cottage Wreaths

 Hello friends! Hope you are all doing well. It is really starting to feel like Fall here. The days are shorter and cooler and we have even had some rain.

Today's card has a bit of a fall theme. I got the idea from a card I designed for my Dorchester group. I have been doing a monthly class there (with the help from my amazing friend) for a few years. We weren't able to get together during the pandemic years but we started up again recently. I designed a card using the "Baby Wipe Technique" for them. When I saw the Cottage Wreaths stamp set I thought it would be perfect using the same technique. Here is the card I came up with.

I placed my Baby Wipe on a small plate and added drops of re-inker in different colours. I used Soft Suede, Pumpkin Pie, Crushed Curry and Mossy Meadow. This creates a stamp pad. I inked up the leafy wreath stamp using my Baby Wipe stamp pad and stamped on a piece of Basic White cardstock. I stamped the branch wreath over top of the leafy wreath using Soft Suede ink. I then stamped my sentiment in the center of the wreath using Soft Suede ink. I matted my stamped image using Soft Suede cardstock.

I embossed a piece of Basic White cardstock using the Timber 3D embossing folder. I matted this with a piece of Soft Suede cardstock. 

I attached my stamped piece to the embossed cardstock using dimensionals. I wrapped a piece of Linen Thread around the lower portion of the embossed cardstock and tied it into a bow.

I then attached this piece to my Mossy Meadow card base using dimensionals.

I sent this card to our new president of our calligraphy guild. We had our first in person executive meeting last week. Prior to the pandemic we took turns hosting the meetings at our homes. This was the first time we had been together since. She wanted to celebrate and prepared a wonderful dinner for all of us before our meeting started. I wanted to thank her for the delicious dinner. It was so nice to get the group together in person again. 

Thank you so much for stopping by today. I hope you enjoyed this card. I hope our president enjoyed it as well.

Stay well and keep creating!
