Wonderful Wondrous Christmas Wreath

You already know if you have been following my blog that I love to find versatile stamps and dies that have many uses.  Well, Stampin' Up! outdid themselves giving us three wreaths that coordinate with the Wonderful Wreath Framlits Dies on page 172 of the Annual Catalog.  Today I am going to make a simple, but classy card using the Wondrous Wreath photopolymer stamp set on page 72 of the Annual Catalog.  The Circle of Spring photopolymer set also coordinates with the dies (seen on page 77 of the same catalog) as does the newest Peaceful Wreath on page 21 of the Holiday Catalog.

I CASED this card from Cindee Wilkinson.  Thanks, Cindee!

Use Real Red or Cherry Cobbler to accent this Hardwood background stamp cut into strips staircase.  The garland is the Wondorous Wreath cut in half.

Santa Wishes you a Merry Christmas

I love the Christmas tag we made at Stampin' Up! Convention this year.  I took the tag design and made it into a card.

With a little bit of fussy cutting of the Home for Christmas Designer Series Paper as seen on page 9 of the Holiday catalog you can make this cute card quickly.

You Can't Have Too Many Christmas Trees!

Christmas is my favorite time of year.  Here is my card of many trees.  Hope you like it!

Supplies needed for this tri-fold card are listed below.

To make a tri-fold card, begin with a piece of 12" x 12" Whisper White card stock.  Cut it in half.  Place the 6' X 12" piece in the landscape format on your work surface.  Measure and mark 1" from the top right corner and 1 " from the bottom left corner on the 12" sides.  Cut diagonally across the card stock from measured 1" marks.

Choose five of your favorite small trees.  Choose one of the medium trees for the largest, top panel.  Decorate the trees as you wish using the different framelit dies.  I have added Real Red card stock behind the tree I cut with the "ball" design; Mossy Meadow card stock with white heat embossed snowflakes behind the scalloped tree and placed a glimmer paper gold star atop the back tree.   Position your trees on each panel so that they can all be seen when it is closed.  Decorate the "ground" with your choice of snowman, birds, reindeer, cars and greetings.  Remember that the back of the trees will show above the white card stock on the back so decorate the backs too!

Here are photos of the front and back of the card when out flat.
