Floral Chain Wreath Birthday
by Trina Pham


Hello everyone.  I decided to deconstruct the Floral Chain from the Sumner Daydreams release to create a colourful rainbow wreath birthday card for a friend’s birthday next month.

The Floral Chain was die cut from Bristol paper then cut apart with scissors.   Kept a few of the fuller flowers then die cut out more individual flowers with one end of the die to complete the wreath.  Used finger brushes to apply distress inks (DI) to the centers and edges of the petals in rainbow colours.  Curled and shaped the petals with my fingers, then lightly spritz with water from behind since DI reacts with water.  Set aside to dry.


The background panel is cream woodgrain paper trimmed to A2 size (4.25”x5.5”) and scored horizontally in 1” increments using a scoring tool.  The sentiment from Signature Greetings was heat embossed with white embossing powder on black cardstock then die cut out with the coordinating die.  Next, a circle frame was die cut from more of the cream woodgrain paper using dies from Circle Basics.  This frame is what the flowers were attached to and ensured the circular wreath shape.


Assembled the card onto a white card base, popping the sentiment up with mounting tape.  Clear shimmer on the flowers and coordinating color jewels to the flower centers finished off the card.

And that’s it!  Thank you for joining me today.  Have a wonderful week.






This is so pretty. I love the rainbow colors and lovely blossoms. That woodgrain paper is great.

What a beautiful rainbow wreath card and great idea to deconstruct the floral chain die and get even more out of your dies. Great idea too to score the woodgrain paper. What a fabulous card Trina x.

This is so pretty! Love the coloured flowers and the "wood" background!

What a great use of that die, Trina - just love your colorful floral wreath!! So perfect atop the scored woodgrain - love the cream color!!

Oh, how sweet and lovely rainbow floral wreath!! It's a great idea and the white wood-grain panel makes it so fresh and classy!! The coordinate gems look so cute!

Love how you've used this die to create a wreath of flowers, Trina! So very creative and a great way to stretch the use of the die. Gorgeous in the rainbow colours. The matching jewels add a lovely sparkle. Great work!

Gorgeous floral wreath. Love the colours and design.

Beautiful, delicate!
