Stampin’ Up! Cottage Wreaths for The Card Concepts

Good Wednesday morning my stamping friends. I hope everyone’s week is going well. We’re halfway through and on our way to the weekend. Can you believe it’s the last day of November already? I’ve lost the past 2 months, they have been a blur to me.

It’s time for an inspiration challenge from The Card Concepts. The inspiration photo #185 is Christmas Greetings.  Here is my card that was inspired from the challenge photo.

Stampin' Up! Cottage Wreaths 1

I used the Stampin’ Up! Cottage Wreaths Bundle for my card today. I was inspired by the wreath on the door and the colors for my clean & layered card.

I hope you will take a moment to visit The Card Concepts and join us for our challenge #185.  How are you inspired by the photos?

Stampin' Up! Cottage Wreaths 2

I started by adhering 4 smaller panels of Cherry Cobbler cardstock to a larger panel making it look like a door. I embossed the panel using the Timber 3D Embossing Folder. I adhered the layered embossed panel to a Basic White Thick card base.

On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the twig wreath image from the Stampin’ Up! Cottage Wreaths Photopolymer Stamp Set in Sahara Sand Ink. I stamped the small pine bough image from the Cottage Wreath stamp set all around the wreath in Evening Evergreen Ink. I stamped multiple pine bough images on the Basic White Panel. Using my Country Wreaths Dies, I cut out the wreath and all the pine bough images. I adhered the pine boughs to the wreath using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the wreath to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. From a panel of Real Red cardstock I cut the bow from the Country Wreaths Dies. I adhered the bow to the wreath using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the panel of Basic White cardstock, I stamped the sentiment from the Cottage Wreaths stamp set in Evening Evergreen Ink. I cut the sentiment out using the smallest die from the Stylish Shapes Dies. I adhered the sentiment to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added Red Rhinestones Basic Jewels to the wreath and 1 Brushed Metallic Adhesive-Backed Dot as a doorknob.

On the inside, I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Very Best Occasions Cling Stamp Set in Evening Evergreen Ink on a panel of Basic White cardstock. I stamped the bow image from the Cottage Wreaths stamp set in Real Red Ink on the top of the panel. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Cherry Cobbler mat then to the inside of the Basic White Thick card base.

To complete my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the bow image from the Cottage Wreaths stamp set in Real Red Ink on the envelope front. I adhered a panel of Painted Christmas Designer Series Paper to the envelope flap.

In response to changing policies at Stampin’ Up – I’m adjusting my Ordering Gift policy as well.  I’m having to get a little more tough on the adding of Host codes when you place your order thru my Online Store.

Not to worry – you’re still going to get that $10 ordering gift for orders of $50 (before shipping & tax) or greater.  And the gift is still any 1 SU! product up to that $10 value – which includes some of our fun Host Sets!

But – if you DO NOT use the Host code for your orders of less than $150 (this is the RETAIL total before Shipping & Handling), then you’ll have two options:

  1. You’ll need to call Stampin’ Up! (1-800-Stamp-Up) and ask them to add it for you. They’re very helpful and will get it done quickly!  OR….
  2. If your order was over the $50 threshold but under $150, then…you’ll forfeit that $10 ordering gift and rewards – this is the Bummer Option – and I REALLY don’t want to do this, SO please remember to add my Current Host Code.
