This is from Stampin’ Up!:

World Card Making Day is all about making beautiful, heartfelt cards. During the event, we’ll walk you through several projects, and you’ll create the cards right along with us. You’ll end up with new project ideas and some stunning new cards!

To make the most of this experience, you can order the Cottage Rose Bundle from the 2022–2023 Annual Catalog, the Cottage Wreaths Bundle from the July–December 2022 Mini Catalog, or the Warm Welcome Bundle, which you can get early from the January–June 2023 Mini Catalog! If you want, you could even order all three bundles! 

When you order one of these three bundles: Cottage Rose Bundle, Cottage Wreaths Bundle or Warm Welcome Bundle you’ll get a FREE gift of Iridescent Pearl Basic Jewels! 

 You can still attend this event without ordering the bundles, but it will be a lot more fun to craft together if you have one or more bundles! 


For today’s card, I was excited to use the Cottage Wreaths Bundle, and stamped a wreath of leaves in Garden Green Ink on Basic White Cardstock. Then, I stamped a second wreath of stems on top of it in Early Espresso Ink.

After stamping, I used a Cottage Wreath Die to cut the wreath, and another die in the set to cut the bow from Gingham Cottage Designer Paper. Doesn’t the Real Red plaid make a pretty bow?

Christmas Wreath


Beneath the wreath is Basic White Cardstock, cut with the fourth largest Deckled Rectangles Die. After cutting, I embossed it with the Merry Melody Embossing Folder, and placed it on Dimensionals.


For a different color combination, I added a layer of Early Espresso 6″ X 6″ Designer Paper, cut with the largest Deckled Rectangles Die, to the Thick Basic White card base, 8 1/2″ X 5 1/2″, folded at 4 1/4″.


The sentiment, “Christmas Greetings,” is from the Trees For Sale Stamp Set, stamped in Early Espresso Ink, and fussy cut. I attached the wreath and sentiment with Dimensionals, and my card was complete.


I was inspired by Freshly Made Sketches.
