Cardmaking Ideas with Wreaths

Wreath-building stamps, dies, stencils, and embossing folders offer endless possibilities for creating stunning wreath cards. Here are a few ideas to get you started:

Colorful whimsical floral wreath on a handmade greeting card

1. Floral Wreath Card. Don’t own a wreath stamp or die? You can use any stamp/die you have with smaller flowers, leaves, and branches! Stamp a variety of floral elements, then use the coordinating dies to cut them out. Arrange the die-cut pieces in a circular pattern to create a beautiful wreath on your card.

2. Butterfly Garden Wreath Card. Incorporate butterflies on your wreaths and create a whimsical wreath filled with fluttering butterflies. Add dimension by die-cutting and layering the butterflies around the wreath.
