I thought I had finished making Christmas cards for the year, but there is always “just one more.” For today’s card, I used the Cottage Wreaths Stamp Set and Dies, and I’m happy to say they will be carrying over to a future catalog. I suggest ordering them now, as a bundle, so you can save 10%. You can click on the picture in my Product List below.
The top layer of the wreath was cut from Very Vanilla Cardstock, and bottom was first stamped in Evening Evergreen, before cutting. After gluing the layers together, I placed the wreath on Dimensionals.
The wreath was bordered with a frame, cut from Brushed Metallic Cardstock with the largest, Fabulous Frames Die. I glued it to Very Vanilla Cardstock, 4″ X 5 1/4″, which I glued to a Thick Very Vanilla card base, 8 1/2″ X 5 1/2″, folded at 4 1/4″.
Next, I cut a second frame from Very Vanilla Cardstock, and used the center to emboss with the Merry Melody Embossing Folder. Then, I glued this inside the gold frame.
Since the music is “Joy to the World, I stamped “joy” in Evening Evergreen Ink on Very Vanilla Cardstock, used my Paper Snips to fussy cut, and glued it in place. “Joy” is from the Brightest Glow Stamp Set.
Don’t you love the bow? It was cut with a die from the Cottage Wreaths Die Set from Regals 6″X6″ Designer Paper in a Cherry Cobbler plaid.
I was inspired by The Paper Players.

This card is just lovely! I never would have come up with the idea to make the top layer of the wreath the same color as the base but it really looks sharp!
Thank you, Julie! I appreciate your nice comment!
Gorgeous card, Su. I love that wonderful layered wreath, especially paired with that music embossing folder. So glad you shared this beauty with us at the Paper Players this week and look forward to seeing you again in 2023 🙂
