Labels to Love

While out shopping, I saw a beautiful winter white monochromatic wreath!  It was gorgeous!  I figured I could recreate a smaller version on paper and here’s what I came up with.  Can you tell what color the background is?  It really changed once ink was applied!



Here are the details:

  • The base is 5-1/2 x 8-1/2 Thick Very Vanilla, scored at 4-1/4 and folded.
  • The 4 x 5-1/4 layer of CAJUN CRAZE was embossed with the Pinewood Planks embossing folder, then White Craft Ink was applied with the ink pad on top.
  • A 2″ circle was stamped with the greeting from Labels to Love in Cajun Craze Ink and added to the card.
  • The leaves were punched from Very Vanilla cardstock many times with the Leaf Punch.
  • The punched leaves were arranged around the circle and adhered with Mini Glue Dots.
  • Some 1/4″ circles were punched from Gold Glimmer paper and added to the wreath for berries.
  • The Gold Edge Very Vanilla Ribbon was tied in a bow and added to the side of the wreath with a Mini Glue Dot.


So…what do you think?  VERY elegant looking in person!

So pretty! Love how you made the wreath with the leaf punch…and it’s soooo pretty in white! Beautiful combination of woodgrain and gold glitter in the berries and trim on the sweet little bow! Thanks so much for sharing!
