How To Make a Die Cut Spring Wreath Card

Learn how to make this die cut spring wreath card and then switch it up for endless designs!


To make this pretty die cut spring wreath card I used the new Rubbernecker Spring Wreath paired with the Fancy Decorative Nested and Small Tag.    I love that this set comes with all the different foliage sections and the tiny flowers that are sized perfectly for the wreath.  So today I am going to show you some step by step photos so you can see how easy this is to create and then add all your own variations. (Note: the sentiment is from a retired clear set.)

Card Base

  • Cut an A2 sized card base, a Fancy Decorative Nested layer and Small Tag  using white cardstock.
  • Use magenta cardstock to cut a 5.50″ x 4.25″ layer and attach it to the card base using double stick tape.
  • Apply strips of mounting tape to the back of the decorative layer and attach it to the card base.
  • Stamp the sentiment using Nocturne ink and set aside.

How To Assemble the Die Cut Spring Wreath Base and Foliage

  • Use green cardstock to cut the wreath base and several sections of foliage. Note: I used only one color but you can vary the shades of green for even more texture and dimension.
  • Trim off the the stems of the branches and begin attaching them to the base using glossy accents.

  • Continue attaching branches until you have covered the base.

  • Trim the different foliage sections, tuck them under the original foliage layers to fill in the wreath and attach them using glossy accents. There is no one way to do this! Just fill in as you like and build your wreath to your own liking.

  • Use magenta and pink cardstock to cut the tiny flowers and blooms and yellow cardstock for the flower centers. Here is where you can really add your own spin on this design. You can change up the colors, the flowers, make a single cluster, COVER the greens with tiny buds – whatever you like!
  • Place the flowers face up on the molding pad and push down in the centers using a small round stylus.
  • Arrange the larger flowers and attach them to the wreath using glossy accents.

  • Fill in the wreath with the tiny flowers and the stems with blooms and attach them using glossy accents. Again, let your own inner floral designer out and decorate this beauty any way you want.

Layers of bright green foliage and tiny pretty paper flowers in shades of pink come together for this element for a die cut spring wreath card.

  • Apply a generous amount of glossy accents to the back of the wreath and attach it to the decorative layer.
  • Finish by attaching the sentiment tag to the card base using a piece of mounting tape. 

Layers of green with accents of pink and magenta come together on a die cut spring wreath card for lots of texture and detail.
