Same But Different Christmas Card Series 2019 – Wreath Builder + Video!

Today I share 5 different cards using the Gina K Designs Wreath Builder Template as part of my Same But Different Christmas Card Series for 2019.

I love that this tool allows me to use lots of different images to create a look that is not necessarily a ‘wreath’.  You’ll see what I mean when you see the cards.

I started with a simple elf from Holiday Characters that I stamped around the edge of the design.

Then I added an Abstact Paint Stroke in the centre with a sentiment from the Naughty or Nice Stamp Set (which is always fun)!

Next I decided to create a ‘wreath’ of sentiments and this is from the Holiday Tag Talk Stamp Set and they were perfect for this technique.

I thought the sweet little mouse from the Joyous Holiday Set was perfect just to add a little bit of cute.

My next card has lots of different sized circles and dots, I just kept turning and stamping until I was happy with the result…   I’m not sure if I went too far, but it was fun to do.

I added a die cut Jumbo Joy sentiment and a sub-sentiment from Merry Moments Stamp Set.

The most wreath like of my card is the next one, I used a simple leaf image from the Holiday Bow Stamp Set as well as some berries.

The greeting is from an MFT set called Hand Lettered Holiday Greetings (and you can still get it YAY!).  Oh, and a sweet little bird from the Lift Me Up Stamp Set.

Finally another Holiday Character and this one is the reindeer, just peeking over the edge,

and a Retro Holiday Greetings sentiment in the middle.  Something similar to this would be easy to mass produce, if time was short as it always is lol.

  1. Your cards are always amazing – I could watch you for hours – lost a die myself last week – not a trace until my husband picked up my mobile phone and the die was stuck to the back of it – magnetic lol 😁

  2. It is easy to see that your creative brain was oh so happy playing with the wreath builder, Therese! Thanks for sharing all of these darling ideas using it! LOve them all, but that fabulous, dotty JOY is my fave today, my friend! off to watch!! xx
    =]

  3. I so needed this video, Therese. I’ve had the wreath builder for over a year since visiting GinaK’s shop but was never happy with any of my creations. You’ve broadened my horizons with your creativity. TFS

  4. What a beautiful and whimsical set of Christmas cards, the wreath builder is such a fun and fabulous tool, love the festive colors and your awesome designs.
    Thank you for sharing.
    Hugs.
    Maria.

  5. These are amazing! Love the elf (might have to CASE that one with my cheeky elf!) and the deer. Love the pops of colour on those. I don’t think you went to far with the circles – love the bold sentiment on that one too.

  6. I love the contemporary colour combo you used, Therese … and that you created designs that are non-wreathy (except that gorgeous leafy one!). Those Christmas characters coming off the edges are especially fun! A quintet of fabulousness! Hugs, Anita 🙂

  7. Thank you for sharing so many awesome idea’s using the wreath builder stencil, love the bright colour combination of inks. On the note of your coloured pencil getting shorter have you seen the extender for pencils ?

    1. Hi Andrea, Thank you for the extender tip, I already have one…. but I get lazy and can’t be bothered moving it around to the other pencils lol. Maybe I will buy another one! Thanks so much for your lovely visit today, Crafty hugs, Therese

Thanks for visiting! I'd love to hear what you have to say.
