Rainbow and Christmas Wreaths - Pinkfresh Studio Facebook Live Cards

Good morning! Yesterday was our weekly Pinkfresh Studio Facebook Live! This week was a beautiful rainbow wreath - as well as a quick look at a Christmas version of the same card! If you missed the Live video and want to take a peek, you can find it on the Pinkfresh Facebook Page - yesterday's video is available HERE. As always, there was one giveaway for someone who watched live, so make sure and pop in each week to win that live giveaway - 10 AM Pacific time on Thursday morning!

I also always try to post info here the next day on the card we make - for those that aren't on Facebook or maybe didn't see it over there.

This idea came from Kinnari - the owner of Pinkfresh Studio. She really wanted something done like this - so I was excited to play with it and be able to create it!

We started off by watercoloring all those little leaf sprigs from the Layered Wreath Die - they were actually die cut from 110 lb Neenah Solar White cardstock - not watercolor paper. Love that it works so well for this! While those dried, we die cut 2 of the white wreaths and layered them together with some liquid glue, setting that aside to dry as well.

Next up, that lovely wide Rainbow with Splatters Washi tape! We adhered that to a panel of white cardstock, and then die cut with Essentials Stitched Rectangles Dies. We stamped and heat embossed a sentiment from Delicate Wreath in white on a strip of vellum, and wrapped that around the washi panel, adhering on the reverse side.

By now those rainbow pieces were dried, so we adhered them one by one on the wreath, adding the flowers that were die cut from gold glitter cardstock. A tiny jewel from Essentials Jewels mix in the center of the flowers finish that off! Then once everything dried, the wreath was adhered with foam adhesive over the main panel.

We didn't create this card in the Live, but I did show a look at it:

This is essentially the same card and layout - just switched a few things up to make it a Christmas card. Love how you can take the same exact die and create something so different with it!

For this card, I die cut the leaf sprigs from gold glitter cardstock, and instead of cutting the included circles for berries, I just embellished it with a different color of jewels. The sentiment for this one came from Season's Greetings Stamp Set.

Instead of washi tape for the background, some pattern paper from Home for the Holidays did the trick!

Which version is your favorite? Would love to hear!
