Fold It Friday: Cottage Wreath Birthday Card

Friday’s are for fun folds now.  Each Friday, I will post a Fun Fold card to end the week.  I must admit that I don’t make many of this type of card but with committing to posting one each week, I hope to step up my fun fold game.  This week I’m starting off with a simple yet pretty birthday card featuring the Cottage Wreath bundle.

  • Cut and layer three wreaths from the Cottage Wreath dies:  I used Pear Pizzazz (retired), Old Olive and Soft Sea Foam card stock.
  • Add Loose Daisy Embellishments to the wreath.
  • Stamp the birthday sentiment and cut with a circle die or punch
  • Glue the sentiment circle to the back of the wreath.
  • Glue wreath to the closure strip.
  • Lastly, add a few pearls to the top right of the card.

Even though this is a simple fun fold, I think any recipient would appreciate the creativity.
