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!
