DIY Wreath from Individual Stamp Elements

Rather than use the autumn entwined floral wreath by Barbara Gray (Claritystamp) itself on this card, I decided to build up my own wreath using the extra stamps which come with the set.
Trim a piece of Clarity stencil card to 6.5” x 6.5”. Draw round the inner circle stencil from the Framer 1 set lightly in pencil in the centre. Stamp the berry branch from the Barbara’s entwined autumn wreath stamp set six times around the circle in Olympia Green Versafine ink.
Add the fern stamp nine times around the circle in Spanish Moss Versafine ink.
Add the leaf pair outline between the berry branches in the same ink. When dry, erase the pencil circle.
Colour the leaves, berries and ferns using coloured pencils.
Add Happy Birthday using the sentiments which come with the floral numbers to the centre of the wreath. Use Versamark ink and heat emboss with copper embossing powder.
Colour the lettering with a red Sakura Stardust pen. Go over the berries with the same pen.
To finish, add the topper to the front of a 7” x 7” black card blank.
