Not So Fall Wreath Layered Die Cut Card


Hi friends!  Autumn with you today to share a fun variation for using our new Fall Wreath die cut.  I have other fall creations coming soon with this die, but I thought it would be fun to use it in an out of the box way.  I picked up this very old Prima paper pack on sale.  I love mixing black patterns with bright colors.  I was curious to see how the Fall Wreath die would cut the beautiful floral pattern in the collection.  Wow!  I was amazed!


I built up some layers by cutting tags from a couple of the papers, then tucked one tag into the wreath.  I wanted it to stand out a little more, so I added a black die cut behind it.  I didn't try to line them up perfectly and just let it be wonky to give more dimension.  I added a Prima flower and tucked in some snips of our new Fall Leaves Scroll die behind it to make it pop.  You could easily add a few snips of the Fall Wreath instead.


I placed the wreath die so that the leaves were the focus and tried to cover the acorns more so to make it less "fall".  I added a sentiment from the paper and from a sticker sheet and then tucked in sequins and buttons here and there.  Because I wanted to make a 4.25x8" elongated card, I cut my 6x6" pack down to size, then used the cut off to build length.  I distressed the "seam" then tucked in some scrunched lace.  Fun!


I love letting elements of my bundles extend the card base.  Here you can see the tucked in white flowers I used to create even more contrast and dimension.  This was so much fun to make.  I hope you are inspired!
