Today I am sharing how I used the Stampin’ Up! Cottage Wreaths for the Seasons! I have made a Halloween, Fall and Holiday card with this set!
Lets start with the Halloween version of the card. The card base is a piece of 5 1/2″ x 4 1/2″ piece of Pumpkin Pie cardstock, layered with a 5 3/8″ x 4 1/8″ piece of Basic Black CS. Then a 3 7/8″ x 5 1/8″ piece of Gingham Cottage Designer series paper. The center of the card is a 6″ x 3″ piece of Basic White scored at 3″.
The “twig” wreath is stamped with Pumpkin Pie Ink. Stamp the image once on the top of the Basic White cardstock. Then turn the stamp a quarter turn and stamp again. Stamp a spider with Tuxedo Black Momento ink. Use the Black Pearlized Enamel Effects to create the decorative dots around the wreath.
Stamp the spider inside the card and use a black marker to draw a string from a web down to the spider. Next is the Fall Themed card!
I know the card base color looks green but it is really Crumb Cake CS cut to 11″ x 4 1/4″ scored at 5 1/2″. The card front is embossed with the sprigs & twigs embossing folder. Cut a 1 1/2″ x 5 1/4″ piece of the gray Gingham Cottage designer paper. Attach to the bottom of the card base.
The Wreath is stamped with Crumb Cake ink using the twig stamp on a piece of Basic white CS. Cut the wreath out with the corresponding die. Stamp and cut leaves with Cajun Craze, Crushed Curry and Pumpkin pie inks. Cut out and add to the Twig wreath!
Cut a 3″ square of Crushed Curry CS. Add a 2 7/8″ square piece of designer paper. Layer onto the Crushed Curry CS. use dimensionals to attach the wreath to the square. Attach to the left front of the card. Stamp Acorns with Crumb Cake ink and cut a bow from Cajun Craze CS. Attach to the wreath and add a sentiment. Then use Metallic Dots to embellish the front of the card.
Next is the Christmas Wreath made with the Book Binding card technique.
I love the Book Binding Technique. Cut a piece of Pear Pizazz cardstock to 11″ x 4 1/4″. Score at 5 1/2″ to make the card base. Score at 4 1/2″ on the card front. Bend the front of the card up.
Cut a piece of Painted Christmas Designer paper to 3 /4″ x 4″. Attach to a 7/8″ x 4 1/8″ piece of Real Red Cardstock. Attach to the very left side of the card. Wrap a piece of Real Red ribbon around this layer of the card. Add a line of adhesive on the inside of the card over the ribbon. Secure to the back of the card.
Cut a 4 1/8″ x 4″ piece of Painted Christmas Designer paper. Cut a 4 1/4″ x 4 1/8″ piece of Real Red CS. Adhere the Designer paper to the Real Red CS. Attach to the front of the card.
Use the wreath with leaves stamp to stamp the base of the wreath with garden green ink. Use the Pine needle stamp with Shaded Spruce ink to stamp pine needles over the leaves. Cut out the wreath with the corresponding die.
Cut a 3″ square of Real Red Cardstock. Cut 2 7/8″ square of Basic White cardstock. Attach to the Real Red Cardstock. Add the wreath to the square with dimensionals.
Tie a bow with a piece of Real red ribbon. Attach to the top of the ribbon with a glue dot.
