Stampin Up Buffalo Checked Wreath Card Idea- Rosanne Mulhern stampin up

Today’s card is definitely “me”.  I know this because while I usually (lovingly) labor over creating a card, this one came together quickly and seamlessly.  I was truly in my element with the buffalo check, wreath and color. 

While all the products I used are retiring on 5/3, I wanted to give them another go around.  Here’s the details…

  • A2 thick Basic White card base is cut at 4 1/4″ x 11″ and scored at 5 1/2″ for a top fold card.
  • The next layer is regular Basic White card stock cut at 4″ x 5 1/4″.
  • On this layer, I stamped a 1 1/4″ border using the Buffalo Check stamp and Rococo Rose ink.
  • Next, I added a piece of  Rococo Rose 1/2″ Scalloped Linen Ribbon around the top of the stamped check.
  • By gluing a few (3) pieces of inexpensive thick card stock to the back of this panel, it provided just a small and sturdy amount of dimension.  This also cuts down on the bulk of the card for mailing purposes.

  • The wreath is created using the Wreath Builder dies.
  • A few added details on the wreath are:  tiny pearls for the flower centers, bumblebee enamel dots and linen thread.
  • The sentiment is from the Arrange a Wreath stamp set and is stamped with black ink.

  • The inside sentiment is from the retiring Happy Thoughts stamp set.  I really wish this great set of sentiments was carrying over into the new catalog.  However, I know I’ll continue to use it anyway.   Most of the retired sets I hold onto are for the sentiments.
  • Just like I did on the front of the card, I stamped the Buffalo Check directly onto the Basic White panel and layered it onto a piece of Rococo Rose card stock.


Here’s a look at what products are retiring along with some really deep discounts.  However, once a product is sold out, it’s gone for good!

    Stunning! I love the rococo rose. The buffalo check plaid is awesome! I have that stamp and thought I would use it a lot but nope, just a few times.

    • Thank you, Chris! Use the Buffalo check…it’s better than DSP because you can make it any color you want. I’m not letting mine go and will continue to use it. Have a great day!
