Today I have one more card using the Cottage Wreaths Bundle and a trick for using the stamps and dies so they line up easily. This bundle is on the low inventory list so if you’ve been thinking about it, you’ll want to get it before it’s unavailable. It will return but I have no idea how long that will take.

The Cottage Wreaths Bundle includes the Cottage Wreaths stamp set and the Country Wreaths Dies.




I started with a piece of Real Red cardstock and then added a layer of Painted Christmas Designer Series Paper. This paper was released last year at this time and was brought back for the new catalog.  I love the designs in this paper so I was happy that it made a return!

Next, I added a layer of Garden Green cardstock and Basic White cardstock. I used the Stylish Shapes Dies to cut the Basic White square and then ran it through the Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine using one of the Wintry 3D Embossing Folders. I added Stampin’ Dimensionals to the back and adhered it to the front of the card.




I used Garden Green ink to stamp the wreath and here’s a tip for using the stamps and dies. Inside the case, you’ll find a notch beside each wreath and a notch on the die itself for easy alignment.  See the graphics below for more explanation. 




I cut a circle out of Basic White cardstock using the Layering Circles Dies (a little bit smaller than the wreath).  I placed it under the wreath before I glued it so I could stamp the sentiment exactly where I wanted it.  After stamping the sentiment using the Cottage Wreaths stamp set and Real Red ink, I glued the wreath to the circle, added Stampin’ Dimensionals to the back and adhered it to the square. 




I used the beautiful Real Red & White Glimmer Paper and the Country Wreaths Dies to cut a bow and adhered it to the wreath using Multipurpose Glue.  To finish my card, I added five Red Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the wreath.
