Rosy Christmas ? Creating a Christmas Wreath with Flower Stamps

I love it when a stamp set is versatile. For this project, we will be creating a Christmas Wreath card using the Stippled Blossoms (Roses) stamp set. This is an idea I've seen many times on the demonstrator website, I'm not sure who came up with the initial idea, but it has a fabulous effect!


  1. Make card base out of Old Olive cardstock, 5.5" x 8.5" scored at 4 1/4" (fold)
  2. Die-cut Whisper White cardstock with the Top Note Die
  3. Put die-cut in the trimmer, line up the edge of the "curls" to the 3.5" mark on the trimmer.
  4. Using the 4th or 5th die in the Circles Framelits, trace lightly with a pencil to create a guide for your wreath
  5. With Old Olive ink, stamp the leaf outline stamp from the Stippled Blossoms stamp set using the penciled circle as a guide, then erase the pencil lines once the ink is dry
  6. Using the Stamp-a-majig position the sentiment from Teeny Tiny Wishes in the center of the wreath with Cherry Cobbler ink
  7. Using the Owl punch, use the smallest circle to punch out the berries
  8. Adhere clusters of three berries using crystal effects around the stamped wreath
  9. Tie a bow using Cherry Cobbler twine, and adhere to the top of the wreath with Crystal Effects
  10. Cut a 5 1/4" x 4" piece of patterned paper and adhere it centered on the card base front
  11. Adhere ribbon, using small squares of Sticky Strip on the ends to hold it securely when wrapping the card front
  12. Adhere stamped die cut lining up the left side with the patterned paper on the card front
  13. And last but not least, tie a bow in the ribbon and adhere it with glue dots
