Fall Arrange a Wreath - Stampers Showcase Blog Hop

Hello and welcome to the Stampers Showcase Blog Hop. This month we are featuring projects that celebrate Fall, Autumn, or Halloween. Fall happens to be my favorite season, so I am excited to share my project with you.

Nothing says fall more to me than a nice wreath. The colors are inviting and always look nice on the front door. So, when I saw the Arrange a Wreath bundle in the catalog, I just had to have it!

This particular wreath has all of the classic fall colors in it with a little gold metallic accent.

I really like these colors together and am quite happy with the card. And, now that my fall wreath is done, it’s your turn. Are you ready to make one?

Making the Card

Making this card might seem a little intimidating, but the dies do most of the work for you. These step-by-step instructions will help you create your own beautiful fall wreath.

  • Begin with a 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″ piece of Early Espresso card stock, score and fold at 4 1/4″ to form your card base. Adhere a 4″ x 5 1/4″ piece of Very Vanilla card stock to it.
  • Cut a 3 7/8″ x 3 5/8″ and a 3 7/8 x 1 1/2″ piece of Gilded Autumn designer series paper (DSP), sandwich the larger piece in the Tasteful Textures embossing folder, and run through a cut & emboss machine.
  • Line the two pieces of DSP up so that the total size of both pieces measure 3 7/8″ x 5 1/8. Flip the pieces over and secure them together with a piece of scotch tape. (this step makes it easier to put the ribbon on in the next step)
  • Wrap a 6″ piece of Early Espresso Faux Suede ribbon around the DSP (covering the seam), secure the ends to the backside with adhesive, and adhere to the card.
  • Stamp 2 leaves of the following colors on some Very Vanilla card stock; Bumblebee, Cajun Craze, and Mint Macaron and crop them out with the Wreath Builder dies using a cut & emboss machine.
  • Again, using Wreath Builder dies, crop out one wreath using Cajun Craze card stock and the other in Gold Brushed Metallic paper.
  • Adhere the Cajun Craze wreath to the card and adhere the gold wreath on top of it.
  • Attach the leaves to the wreath using Stampin’ Dimensionals, being sure to tuck the stems under the wreath.
  • Stamp the sentiment on a 3/4″ x 2″ piece of Bumblebee card stock using Soft Suede ink. Punch the end of the label with the Banners Pick a Punch and attach to the card using stampin’ Dimensionals.
  • Finish the card by attaching a small bow of the Early Espresso Faux Suede ribbon with a glue dot. (hint- place another glue dot under the ribbon where the bow is attached to keep the ribbon secure to the card)
