Flower wreath

GinaK showed on her latest release a Wreath builder kit, it comes with two sizes of templates that you can use to make a wreath, I thought it was so cool and I was thinking I may be able to make a template myself.  Later that day one of the girls in my cardmaking group mentioned that years ago a UK magazine mentioned how to make them or shared some in all sizes. Then another girl showed how she used grid paper in the MISTI to draw the template out and she used that to make hers. Others were making them on their cricut in design space.  I decided to give it a go and see if I could make one myself.  I will have to confess I must not have cut it out perfectly because my cardstock that I cut to put in it didn't quite fit right so I had to do a bit more cutting so it would fit inside, but this is the results of my go at it.

The link I gave above is to the kit if you would like to pre order it, and HERE is the link to see it in action, isn't that just too cool and such a fast and easy way to have everything line up.  Instead of making it a 4 1/4 square card I applied it to a 4 1/4 by 5 1/2 (A2) sized card and used my die to cut a fancy border, let me just say that the border took more time to cut out than stamping the whole wreath, I had to run it back and forth through my machine to cut through the paper and the card base.

I saw this wreath grid somewhere and then watched the video. Was totally smitten and bookmarked the set. There's always something more to want, but I just got done shopping and need to use what I have first. Just a little self discipline. You make it hard after seeing your pretty card! It came out so perfect and looks like fun. Love the border along the bottom.
