This week, I am focusing on Stampin’ Up! Wishes All Around Bundle. This is different, as I usually don’t focus on one stamp set or bundle over the course of a week. This bundle wasn’t on my radar during my first pass through the holiday catalog. But, the more I looked at it, the more ideas that came to mind. I am certainly glad that I took a second look! I have so enjoyed this bundle, that I wanted to share a variety of ways in which you can easily use it to spread holiday cheer. With that said, today’s post is Part 1 of a three part series. Today, we will focus on using the “greenery” wreath die.
Wishes All Around Card Design – Part 1
I started off with a standard 5 1/2″ xx 8 1/2″ card base using Lost Lagoon. Next, I added a Basic White layer dry embossed with the Christmas Tidings Embossing Folder. This embossing folder has easily become one of my favorites for the holidays. I chose to cut two wreaths, one from Pretty Peacock and one using Lost Lagoon Soft Shimmer Specialty Paper. Now, I could have just as easily used Lost Lagoon card stock, and in fact, I did on a second card. There was very little difference in the how the card looked.
Next, I layered the wreaths, offsetting them, so that, both, colors were visible. Afterwards, I adhered the wreath directly to the embossed layer. My adhesive of choice was Multipurpose Glue with a needle point tip. For the sentiment, I stamped the greeting on a 3/4″ strip of Basic White using Pretty Peacock. I used the Real Red Basic Enamel Effects for the berries. The only drawback is that I had to set it aside to dry and be careful not to “bump” it. A second option would have been to color Iridescent Pearls with a Real Red Stampin Blends marker. Finally, I added a Real Red bow.
wishes All Around Card Inside – Part 1
I kept the inside of the card simple. Pretty Peacock was used to stamp the sentiment. I die cut two pieces of greenery and, again, added the berries using the Real Red Enamel Effects.
In the video below, you will see how easy it is to make a card using the Wishes All Around Bundle. There are tips for using the dies and Enamel Effects. Further down in the post, you will find measurements, supplies and downloadable PDF with instructions. Please leave me a comment with your thoughts on this easy holiday card!
