Pearlberry Wreath

Hello!  I've shared a few creations that my friend asked me to make for her (here, here, here and here).  And now, another one to share:


My friend likes preppy patterns, a la Lilly Pulitzer (just type that name in an Internet search, and there are oodles of examples).  This paper from the Wild Raspberry Matstack / K & Co. was a good option.  It already had a fancy shape to it, since it was meant to frame photographs.  I lopped off portions of it, and mounted it to one side on a white card base.

The Poppystamps Breezy Wreath / Memory Box die cut was adorned with pearls, and a sentiment from Stampin' Up!'s Absolutely Fabulous on a hand-trimmed banner.


I am so pleased with how this turned out.  My friend likes wreaths as well as paisley patterns, and the two elements came together beautifully (especially with the addition of my favorite pearls!).



Stamps: Absolutely Fabulous - Stampin' Up! Paper: white - Papertrey Ink; Wild Raspberry Matstack - patterned - K & Co.; Old Olive - SU Fibers: white seam binding - Hug Snug - Zipper Stop Accessories & Tools: pearls - Queen & Co; Poppystamps Breezy Wreath die - Memory Box; White Opal Liquid Pearls - Ranger
