Week 46 Shaded Spruce - Colour Creations Showcase


Hi All, Here we are with our week 46 of the Colour Creations Showcase. This week we have Shaded Spruce for you all to get inspired with. Green is my favourite colour so I really didn't find this hard to work with. Part of the Regal Collection it was nice to work with a colour that I like. 


I wanted to use a bundle that is retiring at the beginning of May so I chose the Arrange a Wreath for this card and I was really happy how it turned out. I started with an Old Olive Card base and added a Shaded Spruce layer and then my DSP from the Forever Greenery set, I cut out the wreath leaves in both Old Olive and Shaded Spruce turning one over so that the leaves could be seen better I then glued them together. I added the flowers and red bow to finish off the front of the card.

I layered the inside of my card with Shaded Spruce and White card and added 2 strips down the left side I had cut out the other wreath and didn't use it on the front so I decided I would cut it down and use it on the inside I think it gives a lovely bit of interest to the insert, and saves wasting the cut piece as well. It's sad to see the Forever Greenery DSP and the Arrange A Wreath Bundle leaving us, but with so many more new product I know we will be able to create some lovely cards I can't wait to give them a go. If I can help you with a purchase please give me a call, email or PM me I will be happy to help you.

  1. That beautiful DSP is a lovely backdrop to your wreath, Di. I love all the sweet flowers, too. I'll really miss this bundle.

  2. The wreath builder set always makes beautiful cards and your card is just that beautiful Di. I love how the floral colours set off the background DSP so nicely.

  3. Oh Diane as another lover of all things green I love the combination of greens you've got on your beautiful wreath card. Thank you for participating in the Colour Creations Showcase!

  4. Your wreath is gorgeous Di, and I love the pink & purple flowers for a pop of colour!

  5. I would have never thought to use all of those colours together on your card but the wreath looks great on the the different greens.

  6. A lovely colour combination Diane. All the colours compliment each other beautifully.

  7. Oh Di, I am going to miss the Arrange a Wreath bundle, I love your card and snap on using the same DSP. A really lovely card.

  8. Your wreath is so pretty - the purple and pink flowers look wonderful against the different greens.
