I love this lots of layers wreath Christmas card! Why? It looks like lots of work, but it’s not! A few cuts, yes, with your paper trimmer, and one over-the-top gorgeous wreath die, and you’re ready to pop it in an envelope for someone special!

When I asked my Design with Jo VIPeeps Facebook community what colours were their favourite to combine for Christmas cards, I was surprised to hear their answer…and tickled pink!
Not the traditional green and red! Silver, blue and white.
And I have to agree. What do you think?

Here, the Harvest Meadow Designer Series Paper (now on the Last Chance List until supplies run out!) really “sparkles”!! Besides the rich fall colours, the generic patterned blue (middle bottom) is delightful for our Christmas card.
I used this DSP quite a few times this fall. One of the most popular designs was the World Card Making Day video tutorial of this fun popup bendy card!
How about I give you the instructions so you can layer up one yourself?

Let’s Make It!
1.Fold Night of Navy card and crisp up fold line with your bone folder. Glue large piece of Basic White to the middle of the folded card.
2. Stamp greeting onto scrap of Basic White with Night of Navy ink. Lay label metal die on top and affix in place with a sticky note.
3. Attach adhesive sheet to the back of the silver foil. Crop both the greeting and the wreath with your Stampin’ Cut & Emboss machine. TIP: keep the inside of the wreath for other small items to die cut. Add Stampin’ Dimensionals to the back of the greeting and set aside.
4. Adhere all DSP pieces to their coordinating panels of Night of Navy. Then adhere the 2 1/4″ x 4 1/4″ piece to the middle of the 3 1/4″ x 5 1/4″ piece. Wrap the metallic mesh ribbon around and tie into a bow on the left hand side. Adhere to the card with liquid glue, centring it on the Basic White.
5. Add Stampin’ Dimensionals to the back of the remaining DSP panel and affix in the middle of the card. Remove backing from the wreath and glue in the middle. Add greeting along bottom right. Adhere a few Basic Rhinestones as desired.
