Wreath with a Leaf Frond

The stamps on this card are from the October Paper Pumpkin Kit: Blissful Bouquet. I'd posted this card a few days ago when I showed a whole bunch of alternate ideas for using the Blissful Bouquet stamps.

Since then I've received several questions about how I made the wreath so I thought I'd explain here. The key is that photopolymer stamps are somewhat flexible. So even though the leaf frond is more or less straight, due to the flexibility of the photopolymer you can add even more of a curve when you mount it on the block.

The other trick is to use a guide for the circle. I punched a circle and laid it on my project. Then I stamped a single row of fronds around the circle. When I removed the circle it was easy to stamp around the wreath several more layers so the wreath is nice and full.

Here's a close up of the flowers. I guess with flowers that that'd make this a spring wreath, even though its fall here in Wisconsin. While you're looking at the close up, notice the cute little flowers. The small punch  used on the flowers is such a pretty shape, its one of my favorites . . .  from Stampin'UP!'s Itty Bitty Accents Punch pack (see supply list below)
