Happy Monday! It’s time for our Create with Connie and Mary Inspiration Monday challenge! This week we have a bright summer wreath!
I know Stampin’ Up! has that cute sun stamp set that is new in the Annual Catalog this year. It would have been PERFECT for this challenge, but I don’t have it! SO…I focused on the daisies on the wreath and the colors to create my card and used the Daisy Garden background stamp set! It worked out really well!
- The base is 4-1/4 x 11 Daffodil Delight cardstock, scored at 5-1/2 and folded.
- A 4 x 5-1/4 layer of Bermuda Bay cardstock was added on the front.
- A 1 x 5-1/4 piece of Simply Elegant Designer Paper was added down the left side.
- The Daisy Garden image was stamped on a 4 x 5-1/4 layer of Basic White cardstock and colored with So Saffron Combo, Daffodil Delight Combo, Soft Sea Foam Combo, Old Olive Combo and Light Pool Party Stampin’ Blends. It was trimmed to the 2-1/2 x 5-1/4 piece and sponged around the edges with Bermuda Bay Ink, then added to the center.
- A 1 x 3 piece of Daffodil Delight cardstock was punched on each end with the Banners Pick A Punch and popped up with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
- A 1-1/4 x 1-3/4 piece of Basic White was stamped with the Hello greeting from Biggest Wish in Basic Gray Ink, then added to the banner piece.
- A trio of Basic Rhinestones were added in the background for a little bling.
Pretty happy with how this turned out! Make sure to check out Mary’s cute card and what she did with the Inspiration Monday Challenge over on Create with Connie and Mary!
