Feeling Blessed Friendship Card & 3D Picture

My project today was one I had in mind for quite some time.  I found a home decor project on Pinterest and decided I would try to turn it into a paper craft project.  The idea sat on my computer desktop for a few months and then I came across a brand new challenge that my fellow Pal member, Debbie Mageed started.  So the time was perfect to see if my idea would work.  I think it did!

First, here’s the inspiration for the project…

Now here’s my paper crafting interpretation…

Stampin Up Blessed Wreath 3D Frame - Rosanne Mulhern stampinup

Picture Details

  • For the frame, I cut my Crumb Cake card stock at 10″ x 10″ and then followed Debbie’s tutorial HERE.
  • NOTE:  before adhering the sides of the frame, I inserted a piece of 6″ x 6″ piece of woodgrain patterned paper in the center.
  • Once the frame was complete, I created the wreath using the Wreath Builder dies.  I’ve used these dies so much it’s a wonder they’re still in one piece!
  • I cut 6 wreaths in a variety of greens: Pear Pizzazz, Old Olive and Soft Sea Foam and layered them together.  This gave it a lot of dimension.
  • I then used a piece of retired braided trim to create a hanger.  I put some Tear & Tape on the inside of the trim so it would stay flush on the wreath.  I also added a strip of Tear & Tape to the back of the trim and adhered the wreath to the center of the frame.  I made sure that the trim was long enough to tuck underneath the frame.
  • Lastly, I stamped the “Blessed” sentiment from To a Wild Rose stamp set and cut it out.  I also cut a black mat to make the sentiment pop.  I used the Brother Scan n’ Cut for this but it could just as easily be hand cut. This is glued onto the center of the wreath.

Since I was pleased with the way this turned out, I decided why not make a coordinating card and create a pretty gift set.

Card Details

  • The A2 card base is Thick Whisper White card stock with a top fold.
  • The next panel is Crumb Cake card stock measuring 5 3/8″ x 4 1/8″.
  • The woodgrain patterned paper measures 5 1/4″ x 4″.
  • I recreated the same wreath using three layers:  Pear Pizzazz, Old Olive & Soft Sea Foam.
  • I finished the card front by heat embossing another sentiment from To a Wild Rose on Basic Black card stock and added it to the bottom of the card.

  1. I love this 3D project, Rosanne. It is beautiful, decorative, and sweet. Enjoy your day!

  2. Thank you for sharing this. What a beautiful card and picture pair. It would make a great thought gift.

  3. Oh, Rosanne, this framed wreath is just stunning! I love everything about it. And now I know that it takes 6 wreaths to make a gorgeous 3D wreath! Great idea to put a panel inside the frame. I had thought about that if I hadn’t found the perfect DSP for mine. Thank you so much for playing in my very first Creative Creases Challenge and hope you will play again soon!

  4. I love that inspiration sample and the 3D version is just as good. I’m going to make both. Thanks for sharing.

  5. I love your pretty wreath! Can’t wait to try it. Love your blog too. : )

  6. Hello,

    New to the Brother Scan n’ Cut. Is there a simple video tutorial I could follow on how best to use this tool to cut out stamped words or objects?
