Wreaths aren’t just for the holidays. Today’s wreath card gives encouragement to a dear friend. I used the Wreath Builder Dies, Layering Circle Dies, Ornate Frames Dies, Forever Fern stamp set, and 1-1/2″ Circle Punch. And of course, several colors of card stock. The front of the card base is in two separate pieces that are held together by the wreath and the sentiment.

Here’s what I did:

Cut and scored with my paper trimmer:

  • Whisper White Thick card stock (CS) cut to 5-1/4″ x 5-1/2″, then scored along the shorter side at 4-1/4″
  • Whisper White Thick CS cut to 1″ x 5-1/2″
  • Just Jade CS cut to 4″ x 1-1/8″

Stamped with the Forever Fern stamp set:

  • inner sentiment in Pretty Peacock ink onto the inside of the card base
  • outer sentiment in Pretty Peacock ink onto a scrap of Whisper White Thick CS

Cut using the Wreath Builder Dies:

  • leaf wreaths from scraps of Pear Pizzazz, Just Jade, Garden Green, Shaded Spruce, and Pretty Peacock CS
  • berry wreath from a scrap of Soft Sea Foam CS

Cut using the Ornate Frames Dies:

  • outer sentiment

Cut using the Layering Circles Dies:

  • a scrap of Whisper White Thick CS into a ring, using a larger and a smaller die, for the back of the wreath
  • Be sure the ring doesn’t show inside the center of the wreath or outside the perimeter of the wreath.

Cut using the 1-1/2″ Circle Punch:

  • both ends of the Just Jade CS piece

Assembled the card:

  • burnished the fold in the card base with a Bone Folder
  • wreaths stacked and glued onto each other
  • 1″ strip of Whisper White Thick CS lined up along the right side of the card base
  • Just Jade CS glued only at the ends onto the left side of the card base front and onto the 1″ strip
  • flipped over the card base and glued the Whisper White Thick CS ring only on the sides onto the two sides of the card front, making sure the inner sentiment would show through the center
  • flipped back over and glued the wreath onto the ring and the two sides of the card front, again making sure the inner sentiment would show through the center
  • outer sentiment adhered into the Just Jade CS using Stampin’ Dimensionals
  • Magenta Madness ribbon tied in a bow and adhered onto the wreath using a Mini Glue Dot
