Good Monday morning… how are you after the weekend? Refreshed? Hopefully you were able to do something F-U-N! So… guess what – another Cottage Wreaths card :O) this time it’s a fun fold different from what I’ve shared already – but so super easy.
The color on this seems a little wonky, but hopefully you get the gist. I’ve used Gingham Cottage DSP – it has a very country look to it to me, in Real Red. The wreath is stamped in Garden Green with the Cottage Wreaths stamp set, and as I’ve explained before, since it is a distinctive stamp, it has dimension in the stamp that shows various depths of the same color. I stamped again with the ‘twig’ wreath stamp in stamped-off Soft Suede. I die cut using the coordinating Country Wreaths Dies. I tied a bow using the Garden Green 3/8″ Ribbon Combo Pack and adhered it with a glue dot. I added the bow first so as to have a starting place for adding the Red Rhinestone Basic Jewels. :O) Once the wreath was created I set it aside and did all the card cuts.
There are two cuts for the card base: 7 1/4 x 5 1/2 scored at 3″ on the long side; the flap is 4 1/4 x 4 1/4 scored at 1″. I used Real Red for my card base. And I like layers, so several sections have two layers. I’ll give all those dimensions at the end of this post. Let’s start by adhering the flap to the card base. Burnish all score lines. The square flap score is turned inward with the fold on right. Adhere it to the open card base, on the far right edge, equidistant from top to bottom. I don’t want the folded edge over-hanging either, so when adhering, make it even with the edge. I should have taken a picture – and didn’t :O( This is when I added most of the other panels: on the front Basic White and Real Red Gingham Cottage DSP; on the inside I used Basic White & Sweetest Christmas DSP – very cheerful. Now stamp the center Basic White panel – – – and here’s something to remember: on my card, when the flap is closed, some of the stamping shows – don’t do that. Both sentiments on the inside come from the Hope & Peace stamp set: the upper is stamped in Soft Suede ink , the lower in Real Red ink. The wonderful leaves are stamped in Garden Green ink using the Cottage Wreaths stamp set. Adhere this panel in place.
Now go back and add the fun wreath – with dimensionals of course. And you already realize it goes on the flap panel, right?!
For the envelope, I chose more of the Real Red Gingham Cottage DSP for the flap. The sentiment is stamped in Soft Suede ink and comes from Cottage Wreaths stamp set.
