Card "Create"tions Week 1 Favor

Good morning, Friends! I can't believe that we have come to the end of week 1 over at Create with Connie and Mary Card "Create"tions for All Occasions! So many amazing cards were shown this week! I hope that you are a subscriber so that you can see them, too! Remember that your subscription includes full color photos with instructions and measurements! And it's not too late to sign up! You will still get all of the first week's creations!
On Saturdays during this special edition, the designers will be showing you all a little "favor" that uses our assigned stamp set of the week. My stamp set was Oh, Hello. Love this set! And my favor is a decoration for a door or wall. I thought the sentiment "Oh, Hello" was perfect for that!

This is pretty simple to make. I cut 6" x 6" pieces of designer paper from the Tea for Two dsp pack. These were then cut in half to measure 3" x 6". Then I pinched one short end together and adhered it. I did this to all the pieces and then adhered the "half cones" together using glue dots, staples and tape. I threaded some Calypso Coral ruffled ribbon through the back to hand. Then I made the center part of the wreath/hanger.

I used the Oval framelits dies to cut ovals from Island Indigo and Calypso Coral card stock. The Calypso Coral oval was run through the Big Shot using the Square Lattice embossing folder and is adhered to the Island Indigo one that was pierced with the Occasions paper piercing pack. This is adhered to the hanger using dimensionals. Then I stamped the oval image from Oh, Hello in So Saffron onto Very Vanilla and cut it out using the Ovals framelits dies. The sentiment is stamped in Early Espresso and the oval is popped up onto the others. Then I stamped the flower image twice onto Very Vanilla using Island Indigo and Lucky Limeade markers. I cut these out and adhered one and popped the other up. I threaded some linen thread through a button and adhered it to the flowers.

Be sure to check out what the other designers did for their favors and to find out what stamp sets they used this past week at the Create with Connie and Mary website! Thanks for stopping by and have a fabulous day!
