Cards – Ribbon Wrapped Wreaths

Hi all! Vera’s here from Ling’s Design Studio. I am here today to share a couple cards I made using May Arts & Helmar products.

Let’s get on to it, shall we?  Here’s a look at what the cards looks like.

 



 

The supplies I used for these cards:

 

You already know the basic for the card, so I won’t bore you with the how-to for that. Let’s go straight for the wreath. 🙂

You want to cut about 2-7/8” of a circle with the opening about 1-7/8”. You really can make whatever size you want to accommodate your project. This is just the measurement I used for my cards.

Then cut about 30” of ribbon. Add Quick Dry glue on the backside of the wreath and adhere one end of the ribbon and start going around and wrap the ribbon to cover the whole wreath. Don’t worry about positioning the ribbon perfectly. The reason why I use this ribbon for these cards is because the line on the edge of the ribbon and the sheerness of it ended up creating fun patterned around the wreath when you layer them and I think they look pretty with the random layer.

Once you finish wrapping the wreath, use it as guidance as to where to stamp the sentiment on the card panel.  After that, add several Helmar Zapdots on the back of the wreath and adhere the wreath to card.

Print the butterfly, fussy cut it, and adhere to the wreath. And… that’s it…you’re done and you have a fun, simple, but beautiful card.

 


 

Here’s a closer look of the card to show the dimension on it.

This would be a fun design to repeat using different ribbons as depends on which ribbon you use, you will get different look.

I really hope you like today’s quick and easy tutorial. I love these springy looking cards, that I think I’ll make a few more myself or maybe it’s time for me to do a big wreath for my wall. Hm… I think I’ll do that.  ðŸ™‚

Thank you all so much for stopping by and have a wonderful day.

    This is a awesome idea! I love how the ribbon overlaps at places to give it a darker color.
