Winter Magnolia Wreath

sgdt-oct-10-16
This is the card I designed for my Susan's Garden Club Design Team Blog Post at Elizabeth Craft Designs.


Decorating wreaths is a great tradition.  This type of wreath is probably most popular in the South, but so easy to create a beautiful card by using Susan's Garden Notes Southern Magnolia and Garden Notes Evergreen Wreath die sets.  Here is how the card was created.

Start with a 6x6 inch card base.  Add a slightly smaller red backing to the front.

Garden Notes - Evergreen WreathUse the Garden Notes Evergreen Wreath die set and die cut two wreaths out of green card stock.  Alternate branches, attaching to the card front.

Garden Notes - Whitepine Boughs & Pinecone 4 piece set
Using the Garden Notes Whitepine Bough & Pinecone die set to die cut a lot of pine branches to cover the Evergreen Wreath (making it as full as you want).  Create three Pine cones using dies from this same die set.  For help on how to assemble the pine cones, you can watch Susan's Whitepine Boughs & Pinecone YouTube Video at this LINK.  Attach the pine cones at the top of the wreath.

Garden Notes Southern Magnolia

 Use Susan's Garden Notes Southern Magnolia die set and create 3 Magnolias.  You can watch Susan's Southern Magnolia YouTube Video at this  LINK for help in assembling this beautiful flower.  Below is a close up picture of my finished Southern Magnolias.

 Use Els van de Burgt Studio Berry Branch die set to die cut two branches.  You may color the berries red with a marker, or use  an embellisher as I did, called irRESISTible Pico Embellisher - Love Letter.  Once the berries are dry, attach them under the flowers.  For an extra embellishment, I used a glittery white ribbon to create a ribbon accent on each side of the flowers.  Loop the ribbon three times, twist the ends, and wind thin wire around the end. Attach the ribbon pieces with glue dots.

 Use the A Way With Words - 4-Seasons - Winter die to die cut the sentiment out of glossy black card stock.

 To finish the card, use Black Corner Peel Off Stickers on the two top corners.
