Hello and welcome to my YouTube channel and blog; today I’m going to share with you my Facebook live from last night where I shared how to create your own mini wreath builder template with Stampin’ Up! supplies.
It really is quit easy to do. It sounds complicated but it’s really not. Here’s a look at the card I made.
Mini Wreath Builder Template:
For, the mini wreath builder template you will need a few things. You will need a sheet of grid paper, a piece of window sheeting or other acetate packaging, the layering square framelits, a pen or pencil, and a big shot.
I used the grid paper as my template and started in the center so I cut it down to the size i knew I wanted my template to be. I cut the window sheet down to 6×6 so that’s the size I made the grid paper. I then laid the framelit down on my grid paper and drew around it. First the normal way, then turned it on an angle in a diamond format. All the while making sure it was centered on the grid paper and by using the bold lines in the center. You can see all that and how I cut it and hinged everything together on the video. For a larger wreath builder the process is a little different if you don’t have framelits that cut 4 x 4 or 5 1/4 x 5 1/4 squares.
For my card I used the same layering square framelit that I used to cut out the openings to cut my Whisper White cardstock with, that way I knew it was the perfect size. I then placed it in the template in my Stamparatus and stamped away. I started with the lemon lime twist ink first. I tired to use stampin’ spots for this type of work (I got mine out of my paper pumpkin kits or when we carried a few sets of them I purchased every set that we carried last year), but if you don’t have that option you can either use your large pads or get the uninked stampin’ spots and add your own ink refills. This is the option that I like to go with most of all, and is what I have listed in the shopping list below for you. To me it’s easier to use the stampin’ spots then the full size pads and is the method I prefer.
One of the biggest tricks to this type of stamping is to always always make sure that the corner you start with is the one that’s in the next opening on the template. this will prevent you from getting caddy wompous images. And if you are like me it will drive you crazy.
Once I had everything stamped I started layering everything up. I like cards that are like this with a simple design. It’s just a couple layers, and it’s finished.
