Monochromatic Wreath

Turnabout Wreath

Hi All!

I’ve got another example of a monochromatic card for this month’s challenge. I went with all tones of red, along with kraft, black, and white. I used the Wreath Turnabout that I used on this card. I love that this set contains two completely different wreath looks. They are both so pretty!

I used Distress Oxide inks because they work great on kraft cardstock. You can see another example of it HERE. A close-up of the stamping:

    Thanks Darlene for sharing this card with us today. Great tip about using a glue dot on the banner before making the bow. I’ll be trying that next time. Also love this stamp set and have it in my stash to use. But I’ve been time poor lately. You’ve inspired me to try it very soon. Hope your weekend is a good one!

    I love it, and I am so excited that my own wreath turnabout arrives today! Thanks, Darlene!

    Love it Darlene, what a great way to create a beautiful wreath. Love the color combo on your pretty card.
    Thank you for sharing.

    I love those colors together! Makes me think of Valentine’s, just with the palette, but it definitely doesn’t look like a Valentine’s wreath. Great design, too. Thanks for the tips about having the cardstock overhang the creative corner & the glue dot for tying a bow. For bow tying, I generally go with a technique I learned from Julie Ebersole. I tie the first part, then clamp onto the “knot” area with my cross-lock tweezers. The tweezers hold the twine in place until I can finish tying the bow. I can see the advantage of the glue dot in this case, though, since you need it also to keep the twine from slipping off the banner. Thank you for sharing this! I hope y’all have an awesome weekend, too! 😺 ~ Andrea

    Love the card, the reds look so pretty against the crumb cake. I can’t wait to try the glue dot trick on my next bow! 😁

    This is a very pretty card Darlene. I love it. Thank you.

    I am not sure if this is appropriate, but I couldn’t find somewhere that I could send a big THANK YOU to you Darlene and all of my July Birthday Group for the beautiful Sympathy (for the loss of my husband) AND my gorgeous Birthday Cards. I was overwhelmed with the love and support I felt from my Live, Love Card friends. What would we do without LLC girls?? Thank you Connie for your continued support. Much Love, Glenis (Australia)
