Hello friends! With the cold weather and ice around my area, I thought it would be nice to turn my attention towards the month of May with my creation today:
I have used this digital stamp set called May Day Floral Nosegay. I have printed out the pre-colored floral images and fussy cut them out for this card. The sentiment in the center of the wreath is also from this same set which I’ve printed out as well and then cut it out with the Tonic Scalloped Squares Basic die set and sponged around the edges with some blue ink.
For the wreath, I’ve used the Tonic Rococo Fern Garland die and cut it out once in green cardstock and another in white cardstock. For the white one I cut the ribbon area only and covered this piece with VersaMark ink which was heat embossed with some Sweetheart EP. (This is such a pretty EP with lots of sparkle! See below!)
I also heat embossed this same Sweetheart EP along the edges of a white cardstock that I cut out to layer behind the wreath panel. The heat embossed bow was glued over the green wreath and then the entire wreath was centered over the sentiment panel. I also then layered these panels onto a piece of black cardstock. I also put some craft foam behind this panel for some dimension on my card.
For the tiny flowers behind a couple of the white flowers, I took my Clear Mark Embossing Pen and heat embossed the very tips with the same EP as above. All of these cut flowers were attached with the Dimensional Glue onto the wreath with a couple popped up for dimension. I also took some Nuvo Honey Gold Glitter Drops for the centers of the flowers as you can see in the photo above.
Lastly, for the base of my card, I cut a piece of A2 sized top folding card base with a light blue cardstock. I also used this same cardstock color to cut out a couple of pieces using the Tonic Elegant Columns die set…so pretty! I sponged some white ink around the edges of them and attached them to the card base. I cut off the edges that were sticking out with my scissors.
Hope you’ve been inspired by my creation today and I thank you so much for stopping by!! See you soon!

Beautiful spring wreath, Vicki!
so very pretty card!
Your floral spring wreath is magnificent! Just what I need in the cold of winter! I love the flowers you placed around on the wreath and that Tonic Elegant Columns die is amazing too!
Well we can “hope” for some beautiful spring weather, I think the weekend was just a tease as it did get up mid 60’s. This wreath of flowers is beautiful – and when I saw fussy cut I thought oh someone else who loves to fussy cut. Love all the eye candy especially the pink bow at the bottom of the wreath.
o wow! this is absolutely gorgeous!
How gorgeous, the littered pink border and bow are a great touch! Looking forward to that May weather!

Awesome card! I really love all the little details and colours you have used! Thank you for sharing your talent with us at the Papercraft Challenges. Happy crafting and have a lovely Sunday! Hugs, Maike
Using die cuts in the same color as the background is a great tip for creating an illusion of embossed texture. Lovely pastel colors, they definitely add a feeling of spring.
Thanks for joining in at MAWTT.
