Rustic Charm

Someone I follow on Pinterest recently went through a "wreath phase", and pinned a TON of images and tutorials of wreaths - mostly yarn wrapped wreaths.  Somehow in my mind, it translated into this:

I cut a couple of circles out of a heavier weight cardstock with my largest circle die, then cut the centers out with the next largest die.  I stacked them together for stability, then wrapped the shape with twine.  I added some pretty Iamroses flowers, ribbon from my stash, and randomly glued some half pearls on with Glossy Accents.

I attached the wreath to a card layered with paper from the "Vintage Amor" paper pack (from Hobby Lobby's Valentine's Day stuff), a doily, some burlap ribbon and lace from my stash.

I stamped my sentiment onto another piece of paper from the pack that was cut to fit in the center of the wreath.  A few pearls in the corners and the card front was finished.

This card is SUPER dimensional and bumpy, so it's definitely going to need a box to for mailing.  It is one of those cards you would typically make to, either include in a package, or hand deliver.

Thanks for stopping by!
