Cardinal Posy Wreath.


Today I'm sharing one of the new Springtime Cardinal Collection sets from Heartfelt Creations.   


This set is called Cardinal Posy Wreath HSPC 3384 and as you can see it sits well within a Spellbinder oval die.
By using the matching dies for these pretty posy petals HCD706 I've popped up the pretty blooms. Even the Cardinal's have a separate stamp and die set  so I've popped up just one!

Here are the details: Completed card measures 5 x 6 inches.

Mat DSP to Green card. Pierce around green card.
Punch Border from green card and wrap ribbon with bow to right. Add to card front .5” from the bottom.

Stamp image to Pure Luxury card and colour with Copic Marker.
Using a Spellbinder Petite Oval die cut the image and Mat to a die cut scalloped oval. Die cut one cardinal and 5 small posy petals plus 3 larger ones. Colour with Copic’s, shape and add to image.  Add pearls to the centre of each flower.
