Thanksgiving Wreath | Corona Floral de Acci贸n de Gracias


Hello crafty friends,
A week ago, I published a Halloween card for which I used the Spellbinders set, Build-a-Wreath from the Suzanne Hue collection, to make a wreath that is traditionally used in some countries around the world to decorate doors. Nowadays, they are also used in Spain, although not as much. Then, there are people, like my mother, who associate wreaths with the cemetery and, therefore, do not like to put them on doors, but the truth is that I do not dislike them at all. This card was made using a wreath, ideal for giving thanks this Thanksgiving Day, although in Spain it is not celebrated, I think it is very nice to give thanks to all those people we have by our side. 

Hola artistas, 
Hace una semana que publiqu茅 la tarjeta para Halloween para la que utilic茅 el set de Spellbinders, Build-a-Wreath de la colecci贸n de Suzanne Hue, para realizar una corona de flores que se utilizan tradicionalmente en algunos pa铆ses del mundo para decorar las puertas de las casas. Sin embargo, hoy en d铆a en Espa帽a tambi茅n se suelen utilizar, aunque no tanto. Luego, est谩n las personas, como mi madre, que asocian las coronas de flores con el cementerio y, por lo tanto, no le gusta ponerlas en las puertas pero, la verdad, es que a m铆 no me desagradan del todo. Esta tarjeta est谩 hecha con una corona de ramas y flores, ideal para dar las gracias este D铆a de Acci贸n de Gracias, aunque en Espa帽a no se celebre, me parece muy bonito dar las gracias por todas aquellas personas que tenemos a nuestro lado.

The elements for this card were selected from the two die sets, Build-a-Wreath Etches Dies and Garden Wreath Add-ons Etches Dies (both from the Suzanne Hues collection), which were die-cut on watercolor paper and, then, colored in with Karin BrushMarkers. This card is easy to make because if you do not want to spend a lot of time coloring the cards, these watercolor markers give a professional touch to the elements, without spending too much time on it, so you could spend that time building that wreath, seeing the position of each of its elements. However, the ribbon at the bottom of this wreath was sticking out of the card, so it was trimmed to fit.

Los elementos para esta tarjeta fueron seleccionados de los dos sets de troqueles, Build-a-Wreath Etches Dies y Garden Wreath Add-ons Etches Dies (ambas de la colecci贸n de Suzanne Hues), que se troquelaron en papel de acuarela para posteriormente colorearlos con los rotuladores acuarelables Karin BrushMarkers. Esta tarjeta es f谩cil de hacer ya que si no quieres dedicar mucho tiempo en colorear las tarjetas, estos rotuladores acuarelables le dan un toque profesional a los elementos pero sin dedicarle mucho tiempo, as铆 se ahorra tiempo en colorear y se dedica ese tiempo a construir esa corona de ramas y flores, viendo la posici贸n de cada uno de sus elementos. No obstante, el lazo colocado en la parte inferior de esta corona de flores, sobresal铆a de la tarjeta por lo que fue recortado para ajustarlo.


For the background, an ivory-white cardstock was chosen so as not to create too much contrast between the brown and orange colors. The edges of the background were colored with the brown Distress Oxide ink, Brushed Corduroy, to give it a darker touch, but not too much, leaving the center uncolored to highlight the phrase for this card. Before glueing each element, it was ideal to make a simulation without gluing them and take a photo as a guide for the position of each one.

Para el fondo, se escogi贸 una cartulina de blanco marfil para no marcar demasiado contraste entre los colores marrones y naranjas. Los bordes del fondo fueron coloreados con la tinta Distress Oxide marr贸n, Brushed Corduroy, para darle un toque m谩s oscuro, pero no demasiado, dejando el centro sin colorear para destacar la frase para esta tarjeta. Antes de pegar cada elemento, lo ideal fue realizar una simulaci贸n sin pegarlos y sacar una foto para tenerla como gu铆a en la posici贸n de cada uno. 


For the sentiment on this card, I used the word 'Thanksgiving' from Simon Hurley's Fall Sampler stamp set, which I embossed with brass embossing powder, and I stamped with brown ink the other words to complete the phrase ('happy' and 'for you').

Para la frase, utilic茅 la palabra "Thanksgiving" del set de sellos de Simon Hurley Fall Sampler, que embos茅 con polvos de embossing color lat贸n, y las dem谩s palabras para completar la frase ("happy" y "for you"), se estamparon con tinta marr贸n. 


When we make cards, sometimes we do not have colors available to match our cards, especially when we add decorations, such as sequins or pearls. However, this should not be a problem, because if you have transparent decorations, you can simply use an alcohol-based marker (like Copic markers or ProMarkers) and color them in, as was done on this card with the green gems.

Cuando realizamos tarjetas, a veces no tenemos a nuestra disposici贸n colores que se ajusten con nuestra tarjeta, especialmente cuando a帽adimos decoraciones tipo lentejuelas o perlas. No obstante, no deber铆a suponer ning煤n problema, ya que si tenemos decoraciones transparente, basta con utilizar un rotulador a base de alcohol (tipo rotuladores Copic o ProMarkers) y colorearlos, como se hizo con esta tarjeta con las decoraciones verdes. 

I hope you like this card and remember to leave a comment if you liked it, thank you very much!

Espero que les haya gustado esta tarjeta y recuerden de dejar un comentario si les ha gustado. ¡Muchas gracias!
