Once again, I apologize for this post. My computer is in the shop so I had to use my phone and it doesn’t quite work as well so things may not be lined up correctly or the colors may be off. I figured something posted crazy like is better than no post (maybe).
I made this card using the stamp set called Merriest Moments. This set is in the 2021 July – December MIni Catalog. It has a coordinating die set and embossing folder called Merriest Frames (although I did not use them for this card) and you can save 10% by purchasing them in a bundle.
The colors I used are Soft Succulent, Evening Evergreen, Fresh Freesia, Blushing Bride and Rich Razzleberry. To make this card, I first drew a circle using a pencil which made it easier to lines things up where I wanted them. Then I stamped the flowers and leaves over that circle. When I was done, I erased it so you can’t see it. Next I stamped the sentiment in Soft Succulent ink. I felt like it needed something more so I randomly stamped some splatters in Rich Razzleberry ink. Lastly I added some Elegant Faceted Gems in various places.
Thanks for being so patient while I wait for my laptop to be fixed. It is a fairly new one and the battery was only lasting one to two hours before needing charging and it was running very hot. Of course, they had to send it in for repairs because they could not fix it in the store. Such is life.

Dang Susan this is lovely and what a great technique. I always forget that you can just draw your wreath, rather than hunting for a shape to follow. I love the way the wreath goes off the paper on one side. Totally adds interest.
Such a gorgeous wreath! And you made it by yourself – I thought it was a single stamp. I hope that your computer is fixed soon – although nothing looked out of place with this post!
This is GORGEOUS, Susan! I love all the colors, and you’ve created a fabulous wreath!
