Springtime Grapevine Wreath

Stampin Up Jar of Love Birthday Card - Rosanne Mulhern

As I mentioned before, I love wreaths.  I used to enjoy making them for holidays and for gifts. But these days, I absolutely adore making them from paper, stamps and dies.  Stampin’ Up! has so many sets that can be transformed into wreaths.  Here is another springtime wreath.

  • The card base is Crumb Cake card stock with a mat of retiring Watermelon Wonder card stock cut 1/8″ smaller and Very Vanilla card stock cut 1/4″ smaller.
  • Watermelon Wonder 5/8″ mini striped ribbon is a pretty way to break up all the solid card stock.
  • The sentiment, from Butterfly Basics stamp set, is stamped in Watermelon Wonder ink.

  • I used Swirly Scribbles Thinlits to create the wreath.  I cut the swirl out twice in Crumb Cake card stock and glued them together.
  • The flowers are stamped and cut from Jar of Love stamps and Everyday Jars framelits.  Both products are still available as a bundle and will save you 10% but only until May 31.  They will be in the new catalog but not at the bundled price.
  • The flowers were attached to the wreath and to each other with glue dots.
  • I placed Stampin’ Dimensionals on the wreath behind the flowers and adhered it to the card.

  • The inside sentiment is also from Butterfly Basics stamp set.  This set will also be carrying over in the new catalog.
  • Affectionately Yours Designer Series Paper adds a pretty detail to the inside and the front of the Crumb Cake envelope.
  • Here’s a little breakdown of some of the products used on this card.

    I saw this on Mary’s blog and had to come and tell you that I loved this card! Those flowers look so great with the swirly wreath. I thought about something similar when I saw the swirly grapevine looking wreath but didn’t know what flowers to use. Thanks for solving the problem as I will definitely be CASEing this! It is just so pretty!

    • Thanks very much for stopping by, Chris. Those flowers from Jar of Love are one of my favorites. I actually love those little black things in the center the most! I think they make the flowers just come alive. My problem is figuring out color combinations for them!

  4. This is gorgeous!!! You’re making me want the Swirly dies. Sigh… 🙂
    I totally love your color combination. Thank you for your idea!!
