  • The A2 (5 1/2″ x 4 1/4″) card base is Real Red card stock.
  • The Early Espresso card stock mat measures 5 1/4″ x 4″.
  • The woodgrain pattern from the Come to Gather DSP collections cut an additional 1/8″ smaller.
  • Keeping this simple, each panel is glued with Tombow Multipurpose glue.

  • The wreath is stamped in Garden Green ink on Very Vanilla card stock.  I recommend using the Stamparatus or another Stamping Alignment tool to ensure even ink coverage.
  • Using the open wreath die, cut the stamped wreath along with 2 additional blank wreaths for layering.
  • Adhere directly to the card.
  • Using the Real Red Stampin’ Write Marker, dot each berry.
  • Stamp the sentiment in the center of the wreath in Versa Mark ink and heat emboss with black embossing powder.
  • The bow is created with retired baker’s twine.  I’m really not opposed to using and showcasing a bit of retired product when it will work on a project.

  • The inside sentiment is from the Itty Bitty Christmas stamp set.  This set has 18 wonderful sentiments to get you through the season.
  • Just a strip of DSP and Real Red card stock added to the bottom keeps the simple vibe going on the inside and the front of the envelope.
  • I added another sentiment from Itty Bitty Christmas to the envelope.
