While driving around the other day in the older, Historic part of my city and I saw the most fantastic older house (we call them Victorian houses around here). This house had an amazing front porch. I really wanted to try to re-create the lovely front door. The door had the most beautiful wreath with such lovely greenery. Here is my attempt at recreating it using Heartfelt Creations stamps and the coordinating dies.
A closer look at the Wreath:
and I had to finish the card with an additional coordinating flower:
HCPC 3303 – Posy Patch Flowers PreCut Set
HCPC 3394 – Classic Bella Rose PreCut Set
HCPC 3440 – Vintage Doors PreCut Set
HCPC 3494 – Delicate Asters PreCut Set
HCPC 3551 – Holly Berry PreCut Set
HCD 701 – Posy Patch Die
HCD 712 – Bella Rose Die
HCD 717 – Layered Scalloped Posy Die
HCD 726 – Delicate Asters Die
HCD 729 – Decorative Blossom Corner Die
HCD 738 – Ornamental Add On Die
HCDP1 237 – Antiquity Paper Collection
Other products: Timeless Rectangles, Distressed Ink, Black Ink, Brown Ink, card stock, adhesive and die cutting machine.
Instructions: Cut a piece of card stock 10″ x 7 1/2″ and score on the long side at the 2 1/2″ and 7 1/2″ marks. Next using your Decorative Blossom Corner Die place it on the bottom right corner and tape it in place using removable tape. Position the die and paper into your machine with the die in between the cutting plates up to the score line. This will allow you to only cut the part of the die in between the plates. Once you have the right side cut, repeat for the left side. Finally using the large outline from the Layered Scalloped Posy Die, center it at the top to cut your arch.
The next step would be to stamp, emboss, distress and cut out 2 of the Vintage Doors PreCut Set and fasten them to your card topping it off with the Layered Scalloped Posy Die.
To make the wreath you will need to stamp, die cut and distress at least 6 of the Holly Berry PreCut Set. Once you have them all die cut, use your scissors and cut off the leaves and layer them around a small ring to build your wreath. Finish off your card with your favorite sentiment and a flower or two : )
I hope to see you again soon. I love to read your comments, thank you so much!
