Clean and Simple Christmas Wreath

My project today is a clean and simple Christmas wreath card using the newly released Wreath Set by Rubbernecker Stamps.  The set comes with evergreen branches, a holly branch and extra holly leaves and a berry branch and I used all three branches to create my full wreath.  I wanted the wreath to be the star of the card so I paired it with a simple designer paper background and crimped white layer.  I love the dimension the crimper adds to the white layer.  Have you dusted off your crimper and used it recently?  Most people say they haven’t even seen their’s in years.  Mine is in a drawer right by my desk and is used quite often. 

Come see how I made this clean and simple Christmas wreath card.

The Card Base

  • Cut a  piece of designer paper and attach it to the card base using ATG adhesive.
  • Cut a white strip of cardstock and run it through the crimper.
  • Apply strips of mounting tape to the back of the white layer and attach it to the card base.

he Wreath

  • Cut the wreath base and several sets of the branches using green cardstock.
  • Punch out 1/8″ red circles and attach to the berry branches using glossy accents.
  • Begin by attaching the evergreen branches to the base of the wreath using glossy accents and continue to cover the whole base. 
  • Tuck holly branches in between the evergreen branches and attach using glossy accents.
  • Finish the wreath by tucking the berry branches in between the holly and evergreen branches and attach using glossy accents.
  • Apply glossy accents to the back of the wreath and attach it to the card base.
  • Finish by attaching a white multi loop bow.

Clean and Simple Christmas Wreath Card

My project today is a clean and simple Christmas wreath card made using the Rubbernecker Stamps Wreath with Berries and Blessed Christmas sentiment.  I love the crisp pine wreath image with the holly leaves and berries.  I hope you aren’t shocked that there is no die cut image on this card.  LOL! 

Come over to my blog to see how I made this Christmas wreath card.

The Wreath

  • Secure a 4.50″ square piece of hot press watercolor paper and the stamp in the MISTI.
  • Apply Shady Lane Versafine Clair ink to the stamp and stamp the image.  Note: VersaFine Clair’s innovative formulation provides the perfect image to use with watercolor paints or water based markers.
  • Ink up the stamp again if necessary and stamp the image a second time.   Note:  I love using my MISTI to stamp my images.  I didn’t press quite hard enough on my first attempt and didn’t get full coverage of the image.  I was easily able to apply more ink and stamp a second time for a perfect image.

Watercolor the Wreath

  • Use a green marker to fill in the delicate pine needles.
  • Watercolor the berries and holly leaves using a small brush and Distress Ink reinkers.
    • Barn Door and Fired Brick for the berries.
    • Squeezed Lemonade and Peeled Paint for the leaves.

Come over to my blog to see how I made this pretty Christmas wreath card.

Assemble the Card

  • Secure the sentiment image and 1/2″ strip of cardstock in the MISTI.
  • Mask off the bottom portion of the sentiment using masking tape.
  • Remove mask and apply Shady Lane ink and stamp the sentiment.
  • Score two score lines 1/8″ apart on both sides of the sentiment, fold at the score lines to create the banner and attach it to the wreath base using double stick tape.
  • Trim off the banner ends on both sides of the wreath base.
  • Apply mounting tape to the back of the wreath base and attach it to the green card base.
  • Finish by attaching a red multi loop bow to the card base using glue dots.

Come over to my blog to see how I made this clean and simple Christmas wreath card.

Fall Leaf Wreath Card

Good Monday morning.  Today I’m sharing a fall leaf wreath card using the Rubbernecker Stamps 3 Maple Leaves and framed using the Nested Rectangle X Stitch set.  The wreath base was cut using the Nested Circles set. The sentiment is from the Splatter Leaves set.   I colored the leaves using Distress Inks and then embossed them using Versa and clear embossing powder.  I love how the clear embossing brightens the colors on the leaves and that they pop off the white background.

Come check out how I made this fall leaf wreath card.

The Frame

  • Line up the second and third sized dies from the Nested Rectangle X Stitch set together on the magnetic platform.
  • Place the white cardstock over the dies and run through the die cutting machine.
  • Apply strips of mounting tape to the back of the frame and attach it to the card base.

Come check out how I made this colorful fall leaf wreath card.

The Fall Leaf Wreath

  • Cut the leaves using white cardstock.
  • Use mini applicators to apply Shabby Shutters, Spiced Marmalade and Fired Brick ink to the leaves.  Check out my short leaf coloring video on YouTube to see how I color my leaves. You can also see my step by step picture tutorial here.
  • Apply Versa and clear embossing powder to the leaves and heat.
  • Cut a wreath base using two dies from the Nested Circles set.
  • Gently bend and form the leaves with your fingers and attach around the wreath base using glossy accents.
  • Apply strips of mounting tape all the way around the wreath base and attach it to the card base.
  • Finish by stamping the sentiment on white cardstock using Versafine Clair Verdant ink and attach it to the wreath using pieces of mounting tape.

Come check out how I made this clean and simple fall leaf wreath card.

I had such a good time making this fall leaf wreath card.  It is fun figuring out how to place the colors on the leaves to make each one a little different from the other.  Check out the Pinterest Fall Leaf Wreath card link for more inspiration.  You can also find more fall leaves inspiration on my blog by following this link.  I sure do appreciate you coming by today and I hope you have a wonderful week.

The Wreath

  • Cut a green wreath base using two of the smaller dies in the Nested Circles set.
  • Cut several small ivy sections using green cardstock and several flower buds using white cardstock.

CAS Fall Wreath Card

Today I’m sharing a CAS fall wreath card using a layout that I loved using several years ago that was inspired by the Splitcoaststampers Sketch Challenge number 360.  The colorful leaves were made using Rubbernecker Stamps Tiny Leaves and I cut the Winter Tree apart to create the branches for the leaves.  The orange eyelet border was made using the Borders #2 , the circle frames were cut using the Nested Circles and the sentiment is from the Splatter Leaves set. 

Come see how I made this CAS fall wreath card.

The White Frame Layers and Eyelet Border

  • Cut the frame layers using white cardstock.
  • Use two of the nesting circles to cut the circle frame openings.
  • Stamp the sentiment on the front white layer using Versafine Clair Acorn ink.
  • Apply mounting tape to the back of the front layer, line it up over the second layer and attach.
  • Cut the eyelet border using orange cardstock and attach to the back of the frame layers using double stick tape.
  • Attach the completed circle frame layer to the card base using mounting tape.

Come see how I made this colorful CAS fall wreath card.

The Leaf Wreath

  • Cut a 1.25″ circle base for the wreath using nesting circles and woodgrain cardstock.
  • Use woodgrain cardstock to cut the Winter Tree.
  • Cut the tree branches apart to create several small branch sections.
  • Use white cardstock to cut the oak leaves.
  • Apply Spiced Marmalade, Fired Brick and Shabby Shutters ink in a patchwork pattern on all the leaves using mini applicators.
  • Finish the leaves by apply a light of Wild Honey ink over the leaves to blend all the colors together.
  • Attach the leaves to the tips of the branches using glossy accents.
  • Use glossy accents to attach the branch sections all the way around the base to complete the wreath.
  • Apply thin pieces of mounting tape all the way around the back of the wreath and attach to the card base.

Come see how I made this pretty CAS fall wreath card.

I hope you have enjoyed seeing my CAS fall wreath card.  I think the brightly colored wreath and single eyelet orange border pop with the all white card base.  Check out this Fall Wreath page on Pinterest if you would like more fall projects.  You can also check out my Wreath Category to see wreaths made for all seasons.
