Sweet and Simple Wreath Birthday Card
I have one more project to share for 2018… squeezing this in before the end of the year. I’m excited to be using the co-branded Gina K. and Unity Stamp Company stamp set for this sweet and simple card.

I’ve created a quick video tutorial on how this card was made. You can watch it below or on YouTube.

You are going to think I’m crazy, but I tried so many different wreath ideas. Many colors, lots of stamps and they just weren’t speaking to me. They were all lovely, but they were just not me.
I decided to simplify the pattern and the colors and then I was instantly in love. I’ll admit it, I’m a simple girl. I like simple things. I could have kept going with these and most likely will revisit the idea again. I loved playing with the different colors and papers. It will be a great way to build up my stash of cards for different occasions just by changing the sentiments.
The video explains the wreath building process so much better if you want to check that out above. Here are the written steps to recreate this card as well:
- Start with a standard size A2 card (4.25″ x 5.5″) card.
- Die cut a patterned piece of paper in a scallop pattern and adhere to the card front.
- Place the smaller Gina K wreath builder template in a MISTI or stamp platform. Secure with tape. Die cut a 2-inch circle and line up in the center of the template.
- Cut a 5-inch square of white cardstock and place into the template. Stamp the flower and leaf wreath using the wreath builder template in two ink colors.
- Die cut the finished wreath with a stitched rectangle. Adhere to card front with foam adhesive.
- Stamp sentiment on a piece of white cardstock and notch the ends to create a banner. Wrap some string in a few loops and lay down on the card. Adhere sentiment banner with foam adhesive over the string to secure it all to the card.
- Call ‘er done and admire your beautiful card.
