What a fun set of dies with so many possibilities for wreath building! You can make an everyday wreath, such as the one on my card today or you can add hearts, flowers, Easter eggs, and so much more. If you pair it with the Arrange a Wreath stamp set, you’ll have even more possibilities and you’ll save 10%!
I used Highland Heather and Old Olive cardstock to create the wreath (I love this color combination!). At first I wasn’t sure how I was going to adhere these to my card but it was very easy! To attach the Highland Heather wreath to the embossed piece of Whisper White cardstock, I added Glue Dots to the back. Then, I applied Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals to the back of the Old Olive wreath. Super easy!
The sentiment was embossed with White Embossing Powder using the stamp set, Field of Flowers and then cut out using the Stitched Rectangles Dies.
How to Heat Emboss
Prepare your cardstock by rubbing an anti-static pouch** over the surface (this helps keep away stray particles of embossing powder). Stamp your sentiment or image using a Versamark pad. This is very sticky ink and your embossing powder will stick right to it. Sprinkle embossing powder over the stamped image. Shake off any excess. Before applying heat to your paper, heat the Heat Tool first so the paper won’t warp (about 10 seconds). Direct the heat over your image and watch the magic happen!
** Stampin’ Up! retired its Embossing Buddy but using a similar tool is really important when preparing your cardstock for embossing.
The inspiration for my card came from a Canadian demo named Linda Yamamoto. You can see her beautiful card here.
