Christmas Advent - 24 Days of Tutorials - Day 22

WELCOME to DAY 22 of our annual
24 DAYS OF CHRISTMAS TUTORIALS ADVENT EVENT!

Meg here sharing with you today my tutorial
- MERRY CHRISTMAS WREATH CARD  - 


This card is a load of fun (and die-cutting, so get an elf helper ready!), and very easy to make. It's stunning and with it's old-timey feel, will make for a beautiful last-minute Christmas card.

PRODUCTS
Simple Joys Background Stamp Set
Merry Christmas-2 Die
Mini Christmas Wreath Die
Staircase Die

CUTTING & SCORING
Kraft cardstock:
4-1/8 x 5-3/8" rectangle
3 - Merry Christmas Die (you will need the letters only)

White cardstock:
5-1/2 x 8-1/2" - fold in half for rectangle card base
5-1/4 x 4" rectangle

Red cardstock:
13 - bows from Staircase Die

Light and Dark green cardstocks:
13 each - Mini Christmas Wreath Die

Gold glitter cardstock:

2 - tinsel from Staircase Die

HOW TO:

Step 1. Stamp Simple Joys Background Stamp in brown ink onto Kraft cardstock. Center Merry Christmas Die onto white rectangle and cut out.


Step 2. Glue Kraft rectangle onto card base. (White rectangle shown after die-cut for reference).




Step 3. Punch out all of the letters from the Merry Christmas Die you have already cut (3-Kraft, 1-white). Then, stack and glue them together, so that the white letters are on top (this creates "tiles" that are easier to work with).





Step 4. Center the white rectangle onto the Kraft card base, and then insert the outline piece from the Merry Christmas Die. Weigh these down, don't glue.



Step 5. Using this for placement, glue the tiles into place on the card base.



Step 6. Remove the white rectangle and the lettered outline.





Step 7. Set card base aside. Match 1 light green and 1 dark green wreaths, and glue together. You will end up with 13 wreaths total.



Step 8. Arrange the wreaths on the white rectangle. Glue in place. It's ok if parts overlap the edges, we will deal with that in the next step.



Step 9. Turn the cardstock over, and cut away any wreath parts that overhang the edge of the white card.


Step 10. Apply dimensional foam to back of white rectangle, and adhere into position on card base.




Step 12. Add bows and tinsel, and you're done! Merry Christmas!

  2. The mass of wreaths looks so cute. I like how you used 2 different greens per wreath, and then added a traditional looking bow.
