It's just me popping in with another card using products from the new Pinkfresh Studio April release! There's an Instagram hop happening today, but I wanted to share the details of this card as well!

My card today uses the beautiful new Garden Wreath die set which is so much fun to use! You can die cut it from white paper and color the pieces in using ink, or you can die cut them from colored or specialty cardstock to create unique looks! These leaves and flowers can be used for other things as well, not just the wreath! For instance, you can see the new Leafy Branch die that I've used at the top of this card. Wouldn't the tiny flowers look so cute accenting the branch? I can't wait to give it a try!
I used liquid glue to assemble the wreath tucking things here and there until I got the look I was hoping for. I set the wreath aside and got to work on the background. I used the Diamond Plaid stencils to create the soft pink background. I normally use two colors of ink for the two different stencils in the set, but for today I only used Coral Reef to keep the background soft and sweet!
The rest of the background elements were created using the Essentials: Ornate Banner die set to highlight the colorful wreath. I used foam squares to add the banner pieces and then carefully used liquid glue to add the Leafy Branch to the top of the card.
I'm loving these new sentiments and this one is from the Celebrating You stamp set. Please note: this is a single sheet of sentiments that you stamp all at one time and then you can use the coordinating Celebrating You die to die cut them all at once. Then, you can save any of the unused sentiments for those last-minute cards we always seem to need! ha ha!
Since I wanted to keep things soft, I opted to stamp the sentiment in Metropolis ink, rather than black. I love how it turned out. The finishing touches are a few gems and a metallic silver bow! The entire stenciled panel is attached to a top folding A2 card base using liquid glue. Thanks for fluttering by!
