Stampin’ Up! Cottage Wreaths Easel Friendship Card

Here is a super simple fall-themed easel friendship card for you today! This card was created using only stamps, paper and a few embellishments. This is not my norm, I usually am die cutting something for my cards, but hey, I thought I would switch things up a bit!

If you haven’t purchased the Cottage Wreaths Bundle and the Gingham Cottage 12″ x 12″ Designer Series Paper yet, what are you waiting for? The Cottage Wreaths Stamp Set includes all the stamps you’ll need for the holidays – Halloween, Thanksgiving, and Christmas. The Gingham Cottage Designer Series Paper is a huge pack of two-sided paper with one side being a smaller gingham print and the opposite side a larger gingham print.

For this fun fold easel card, I started with a card base in Early Espresso and made the necessary score lines (you’ll find the measurements in the pdf project sheet). I adhered a piece of the Gingham Cottage DSP to a Very Vanilla mat, then adhered this unit to the lower panel of the card front – gluing this panel to the lower panel of the card front only.

The stamped wreath on the card front was created by using different color inks and rotating the wreath stamp for each color and stamping the lightest color first, followed by the next darkest color, and so on. Rotating the wreath allowed the leaves to look layered! I go into specifics on the linked project sheet. Several acorns and berry clusters were also stamped on the wreath. This panel was matted to a piece of Early Espresso cardstock.

Before adhering the stamped wreath panel to the card front, I first used a Stampin’ Blend to color some Linen Thread in Cherry Cobbler. Once dry, the colored thread was wrapped around the top of the card front (Very Vanilla and DSP panel) and adhered to the card front using Stampin’ Seal. I then used Stampin’ Dimensionals to adhere the wreath panel to the center of the card front. A double bow, which was also colored, was adhered to the wreath using a Mini Glue Dot.

A strip of coordinating Gingham Cottage DSP was added to the Very Vanilla inside panel at the bottom and I stamped several sets of leaves on this panel in Daffodil Delight and Pumpkin Pie inks. I then created a simple sentiment label and popped the label up using Stampin’ Dimensionals. The sentiment label becomes the stop to hold up the easel portion of the card!

To finish off the card several Rustic Metallic Adhesive-Backed Dots were added to the wreath and sentiment label. Groups of leaves were stamped on the envelope front and a piece of coordinating DSP was added to the envelope flap.

This card was very quick to make. What do you think? I’m liking the simplicity of this card! I can imagine this exact same card in other color ways – like greens, reds, grays or pinks! This card design would be perfect for a fall birthday or Thanksgiving card too!
