Did you know the Christmas wreath is a symbol of eternity or eternal life? That's because the circle of a wreath has no beginning and no end. And there lies the key to making this stamped decorative card by using a small stamp to make a circle shape.

A Quick, Stamped, Christmas Wreath Card for You to Make

If you have a few more Christmas cards to make and are running out of time, this idea may help you out. It is a very quick and easy card to make. It would also make a perfect card for the Cards for the Troops drive.

You will need:

  • A stamp set with leaves/flowers you would like to make into your wreath plus a sentiment if desired. I used images from Stampin' Up!'s Classic Christmas and Seasons of Joy but it is now retired.
  • Stampin' Write markers (I used Real Red and Glorious Green but you could use any current colours)
  • Encore Gold ink pad
  • Stamp-A-Ma-Jig
  • Card blank, scissors, adhesives, a compass and a pencil

How to Make your Card:

Decide where you would like your wreath and how large you would like it to be. Adjust your compass to draw a faint but perfect pencil circle where you intend to place your stamped image. Ink up the holly stamp with your red and green Stampin' Write Markers and use the circle as a guide to where you would like them to go. Use the Stamp-A-Ma-Jig for perfect placement of your images. I decided to make a slightly imperfect wreath for this card, but with the Stamp-A-Ma-Jig you could make it as perfect as you want it to be.

Tip: Use any small stamp to make your wreath. Try small flower stamps, palm frond stamps, stars, circles etc. As long as you can stamp it over and over to make a circle shape, it's a good candidate for this card design.

Another way to make this card is to use a Post-It note to cut out a perfect circle, then lay it on your card as a guide for your wreath stamps. It will become a mask if you stamp on it, but you can use the edges of the cut out to guide you in stamp placement without stamping on it.

More Wreath Ideas

Some of the newer Stampin' Up! bundles of stamps and framelits include wreaths too, so you could speed your process up a lot by using them. I do love those bundles, but I also love the freedom to choose how to make my own wreath when I want to. Making your own also means you can change up the image to suit the season, and have wreaths for every occasion. Let me know if you have other wreath ideas, OK?

I used the Wondrous Wreath stamp set and Bog Shot dies to make a serviette embellishment here:

The Musical Season stamp set and matching framelits make a wreath card like this one. I just made four different holly and leaves die cuts and overlapped their stems, arranging them in a circle around the sentiment:

Remember to check out the Stampin' Up! catalogue in the right hand column to see the latest stamps and supplies available.
