Circle of Spring Easter Card

It's wonderful that the framelits from the Christmas stamp set "Wondrous Wreath" can be used to die cut the Circle of Spring wreath!

This really cute floral wreath in the "Circle of Spring" stamp set was used to make an Easter card.


I stamped the Hardwood background stamp on Crumb Cake card stock with Soft Suede ink.  This was cut into 2 pieces, the edges sponged, and then formed into a cross.

Before adhering the card to the Whisper White art piece, an image of a sunburst from the stamp set "Wherever You Go" was stamped so that the rays would show just over the top of the cross.

At the base, I stamped some grass using a stamp from "Sheltering Tree".

The die cut wreath was placed over the top of the cross, and the Easter sentiment was added using a dimensional to the center of the wreath.

The Wreath:
After stamping with Black Memento, the various parts of the wreath were coloured with a Wink of Stella glimmer brush and the following ink colours:  Mint Macaron, Peek-a-poo Peach, Flirty Flamingo, Sweet Sugarplum.

Four (4) extra flowers were coloured, die cut, and three were added to the wreath, and the 4th were reserved for the inside of the card..  Pearls were placed in the center of each of these flowers; tiny pearls were also added to the center of the smaller flowers

I extended the main part of the cross over the bottom of  the art piece in order to maintain visual proportions of the wreath covered cross.  In other words it did not look right when it was shorter.

Before matting the art piece with Crumb Cake I wrapped a 1/4" ruffled Flirty Flamingo around the base and then added a bow.

The Art Piece was added to the Soft Suede card front which had a piece of  Flirty Flamingo DSP attached.
