Charlie & Paulchen | Eucalyptus Birthday Wreath

Hello everyone! Today, I’m sharing a new project for Charlie & Paulchen! Charlie und Paulchen is a German company but they ship worldwide! If you don’t understand German, no worries! Just click to the UK flag on the top right corner of their website and all will be translated in English (or click HERE for the English version)!

For today’s card, I used the wonderful Eucalyptus patterned paper (Designpapier Eukalyptus Ausschneidebogen):

I cut out the eucalyptus wreath with scissors and used other parts from the patterned paper for the background panel. I adhered the panel to the front of a top-folded card base and the wreath on top of vellum, then to the card front. In this way, the background pattern doesn’t pop that much and it looks softer. It also adds dimension to the project. I love it! The German birthday sentiment was die cut using the Zum Geburtstag word die. The stamped sentiment (die besten Wünsche | best wishes) is from the Mini & Maxi stamp set.

For more inspiration from the other Design Team members, please head over to the Charlie & Paulchen blog!

Gorgeous card, Francine! What a clever way to use your patterned papers and I love the vellum panel inside the wreath! Once again, you have really 'Wow'd' us with your talents!
This is gorgeous! I just ordered the stamp and paper from Charlie and Paulchen. I just wish they had a matching die. May I ask how you colored the wreath - medium and color choices? It's truly the best coloring example I've ever seen.

@Linda on th Prairie: I didn't color the wreath. The wreath is on the design paper and I just cut it out with scissors.
