Cardmaking with Layering Stencils
For the project I'm sharing with you today, I've chosen to work with the Blooming Halo layering stencils. This exceptional set of stencils is instrumental in creating intricate and lifelike floral patterns, all while keeping the process straightforward and enjoyable.
I remember a time when the prospect of crafting floral cards seemed daunting to me. The intricacies of capturing the essence of flowers seemed overwhelming, and coloring was certainly a challenge. But today, layering stencils have revolutionized the process, making it incredibly accessible and hassle-free. And honestly, I wish they had been around back then!

These layering stencils are a dream come true for crafters who might not be confident with their coloring skills. They guide you in creating elaborate designs that rival the delicate beauty of real flowers, all without the stress of perfecting your shading or maintaining color consistency.
The color scheme for my card was inspired by my love for pinks. I find them to be incredibly vibrant and soothing, and they work wonderfully in adding a touch of warmth to any project. I paired these with greens and a splash of purple to craft my floral wreath.
The result was a beautiful blend of colors that lent an authentic appeal to the wreath. After creating the floral patterns, I used the coordinating dies of the Blooming Halo layering stencils from the Meraki Blooms release to die-cut the wreath. This additional step brought a professional touch to the card, refining the edges and giving it a clean finish.
I chose a pretty, scripty sentiment from Crafty Meraki Wedding Bouquet stamp set for adding ‘Congratulations’ for my card. Making it a perfect Anniversary card - that I need most of the times. This stamp set has beautiful scripty sentiments and gorgeous roses, to make it easier for you to make beautiful Anniversary cards. You can have a look at some cards with Wedding Bouquet stamp set here and more examples here.
To assemble the pretty layering stencils floral wreath, I cut it in two equal halves. I took a Pink Top folding A2 card base and to add some texture, I die cut a white cardstock from Crafty Meraki - Crafty Plaid background A2 die and adhered on the Pink cardbase. Over this background I mounted my two halves of the layering stencil wreaths with foam tape and added the Congratulations sentiment.
