Today’s card is another example of what you can do with a Stamparatus stamped wreath. The layout is the same as a few of the others (you can see them here, here, and here) but the different stamp set and colors make it look very different. I used the High Tide stamp set for the wreath, and the colors are Soft Suede, Crumb Cake, and Very Vanilla. 

Here’s what I made:

High Tide many thanks card, Stampin' Up! #stampcandy


Here’s what I did:

Cut and scored with my Stampin’ Trimmer:

  • Crumb Cake card stock (CS) cut to 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″, then scored in half at 4-1/4″
  • Very Vanilla CS cut to 3-1/8″ x 3-1/8″
  • Soft Suede CS cut to 3″ x 3″
  • Soft Suede CS cut to 2-3/4″ x 1/2″
  • scraps of Very Vanilla CS for punching and die cutting*
  • Very Vanilla CS cut to 5-1/4″ x 4″ for the inside of the card

Stamped with the Itty Bitty Greetings stamp set:

  • *sentiment in Soft Suede ink onto the scrap of Very Vanilla CS

Cut using the Classic Label Punch:

  • sentiment

Cut using Paper Snips:

  • ends of the Soft Suede CS strip to match the punched sentiment

Die cut using the Layering Squares Framelits:

  • *scrap of Very Vanilla CS with the largest plain square die

Stamped using the High Tide stamp set:

  • the wreath in Crumb Cake and Soft Suede inks onto the die cut Very Vanilla CS square
  • See my post here for instructions on how to stamp the wreath using a Stamparatus
  • I stamped the larger image in Crumb Cake twice around – once the standard 8 times, then another 8 between the first ones.

Assembled the card:

  • burnished the fold in the card base with a Bone Folder
  • a piece of Very Vanilla Polka Dot Tulle Ribbon adhered to the front of the card base using Tear & Tape
  • 3-1/8″ Very Vanilla CS square glued onto the front of the card base, over the ribbon
  • 3″ Soft Suede CS square glued onto the 3-1/8″ Very Vanilla CS square
  • wreath stamped layer glued onto the 3″ Soft Suede CS
  • sentiment glued onto the Soft Suede CS strip
  • a large Gold Faceted Gem applied to the Soft Suede CS strip
  • Soft Suede CS strip adhered onto the wreath stamped layer using Stampin’ Dimensionals
