This past weekend, I made myself stay at home to knock out a sinus infection. I got in some naps, but also a little relaxing crafting time. I find fussy cutting really relaxes me because I have to focus on the image and nothing else - no worrying about anyone or anything other than not cutting through the image. This creation was a lot of fussy cutting but it was really relaxing and lots of fun to see it come together:
Open Leaf Branch image ($5 to $10 in the store depending on your mount style). I stamped the image 30 times, colored them with Arteza Brush pens, and then fussy cut them (each branch has a lot of little branches so I cut them off individually). To get the square wreath shape, I cut a square and then but out the middle so that I had a thin frame to arrange the leaves.
I thought the background should stay white to really make the wreath pop, I embossed the top panel to look like shiplap (I am a big fan of shiplap and I am planning on doing a room in it soon).
To finish it off, I stamped the Love You to the Moon greeting ($3.75 unmounted) and cut the 'love you' portion out.
I love how this came out, and it looks even better IRL.
