Simple Card Sunday - Episode 3, Wonderous Wreath Card

Hi Stampers!  Welcome to Simple Card Sunday!  Today I have a super fun, super easy Christmas card to share.  I know...Christmas?!?!?!  But, it's never too soon to start thinking about making your Christmas cards and this design is so simple it might even be the one for you this year!

Remember, for a card to be included in Simple Card Sunday it has to use minimal supplies, be completed in 5 easy steps and be able to be made in 10-15 minutes.

Are you ready?  Here we go!

Sigh...I LOVE this card and I LOVE this stamp set!!!!

Here are the 5 easy steps:
  • Fold the Old Olive (5 1/2 x 8 1/2) piece in half
  • On the Whisper White piece ( 3 3/4 x 5), stamp the biggest wreath image with Pear Pizzazz ink.  Stamp the smaller wreath image over the first stamped image with Old Olive ink.  And, then stamp the berry image with Real Red ink over the wreath.
  • Stamp the sentiment at the bottom of the card with Old Olive ink
  • Mat the Whisper White piece on the Real Red piece ( 3 7/8 x 5 1/8).  Apply Stampin' Dimensionals on the back of the Real Red piece and then stick it on the folded Old Olive card base.
  • Tie a simple bow with some Real Red Cotton Ribbon and stick it on the wreath with a glue dot.
Check out the video to see me make this card in real time and a ribbon bow tip!
