Spring has spring and the flowers are in full bloom. Since I can’t keep a cactus alive I decided to make a floral wreath using the Slay It Girl collection. I wanted the flowers to have the magnificent layers from the 8x8 papers and the 4x6 journaling cards.
The pastels and watercolors from the collection make for magnificent blooms.
I used my Silhouette Cameo’s print and cut feature to create the flowers for my spring wreath. I recorded the entire process from start to finish for my youtube channel “amadoreros” Watch the tutorial below!
I used the Flower cut file #93377 and the Wreath cut file #52165 from the Silhouette Design Store. These were easy cut files to use and layer.
Every flower print is from the 8x8 papers and two of the 4x6 journaling cards. The flower cut file was larger than the 4x6 journaling card but it is easy to enlarge the
journaling card since they come in a png file. A perk of having digital papers and cards!
I chose to alternate the patterns for the flower from the Slay It Girl collection. Each of the flowers has a combination of a solid color pattern and a white background pattern as well. This offsets the patterns so they each have a moment to shine.
I curled each of the petals to give the flowers a more realistic look. The wreath was layered onto lightweight chipboard and then onto two different colors of green that made a good base for the flowers.
The black stripped pattern and arrows give these flowers an additional dimension. I topped the flowers with simple white enamel dots. I wanted an accent that would not take away from the pattern papers.
Now make sure you watch tutorial to see how I put it together!
