Cottage Wreaths Christmas Card

Framed & Festive Cottage Wreaths Bridge Card

It is time for another Festive Friday Challenge!  The 12 Days of Christmas is the festivity we are featuring on the Festive Friday Challenge. What is the Festive Friday Challenge?  The Festive Friday Challenge is a bi-weekly challenge that has an Inspo List.  What is an Inspo List?  Every challenge has an Inspo list  aka as an inspiration list, that has 10 items on it and those 10 items were inspired by a particular holiday, celebration or festivity.  You need to use 3 items from the Inspo list on your project.  You do not have to incorporate the festivity into your challenge but if you want to, you can.  Here is a link to more information about how to participate in the challenge.

FF 124

From the Inspo List I used Christmas, gold, red, fancy fold, and heat embossing.  Yes, I used more than 3!  There are times I struggle to get 3 of the items from the Inspo List so when I can do more, I do!


I used the no longer available Stampin’ Up! DSP, Lights Aglow.  I chose it since it has both gold and red on it.  On the front I used 3 different patterns.  The pretty star circle around the sentiment is from the DSP.  There were square frames too but I decided to go with a circle.  The sentiment in the circle is from the Framed and Festive set.  Love it and am going to use it a lot.  It is only available while supplies last/January 4th.  The smaller sentiment is from the Cottage Wreaths set.  Both of these sentiments are embossed using gold embossing powder.


Surprise!  Hidden behind the circle is a wreath from the Cottage Wreaths bundle.  I also used some Evening Evergreen Glimmer paper (sorry, this too has sold out) to cut a sparkly bow.  The gold you see tucked under the bow are the Gold Holly Leaves. (these are on sale now for just $3!)


Here is where you can write a note and sign your card.  Again I added a strip of the Lights Aglow DSP and more Gold Holly leaves.

What a fabulous fold...and an absolutely stunning card, Sharon! Your work is always an inspiration to me. I have thoroughly enjoyed designing alongside you at Festive Friday. Have a very merry Christmas and a blessed New Year!


Sharon this is fabulous! I love a fun fold that's easy to execute and with the 'hidden' wreath this is a card design that just keeps on giving! So festive in the red and gold too. Merry Christmas wishes!


Sharon, this is such fun! I love your mix of DSPs and that hidden wreath inside is fabulous. The touches of gold add so much wonderful shimmer and shine! Merry Christmas and all best wishes for a wonderful 2023
