Greetings! I have extra pieces and parts from yesterday’s card. And that resulted in another Boo!-tiful Card to share today.

Let’s take a look at the Cottage Wreaths Bundle. So many possibilities.

Here is my card.

Halloween wreath on a brick background



  • Cottage Wreath stamp set (Buy the bundle and save 10%)
  • Country Wreath dies
  • Layering Circle dies (the workhorse in my supply drawer)
  • Brick & Mortar 3D Embossing Folder


  • Basic Black cardstock:
    • Card Base: 4-1/4″ x 11″ scored at 5-1/2″
    • Card Front: 3-3/4″ x 5″
  • Pumpkin Pie cardstock: 3-7/8″ x 5-1/8″
  • Thick Basic White cardstock:
    • Card Front and Message Insert: 3-3/4″ x 5″ (2)
    • stamped images: 3″ x 4″
  • Mango Melody cardstock: scrap for bow
  • Rich Razzleberry cardstock: scrap for bow and sentiment frame


  • Memento Tuxedo Black ink pad
  • Mango Melody or Pumpkin Pie ink pad
  • Versamark


  • Silver Thread
  • Adhesive-Backed Seasonal Sequins


  • White & Clear Embossing Powder
  • Heat Tool
  • Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine + Specialty Plate
  • Paper Trimmer & Snips
  • Black Dimensionals
  • Glue Dots & Multipurpose Liquid Glue


Stamp the wreath on the Thick Basic White cardstock with Mango Melody or Pumpkin Pie ink. Use the Layering Circle dies to die-cut the wreath.

Use the Memento Tuxedo Black to stamp the branches on the wreath, the sentiment, and the spider. Then add Clear Embossing Powder to the spider and heat set.

Cottage wreath pieces all prepped for layering

Die-cut 2 bows. Layer them with Glue Dots. Add a little extra black/white baker’s twine if you have it available.

Add Dimensionals to the back of the stamped circle and the spider. Trim the sentiment, layer on Rich Razzleberry cardstock, and re-trim.

Emboss the card front layer using the Brick and Mortar 3D Embossing Folder and the Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine. (Sandwich = Plate 1, embossing folder with cardstock, Specialty Plate 4)

Wrap Silver Thread around the embossed card front. Any pattern works. I put a couple of notches in the top of my card front to keep the thread from slipping. I also used transparent tape on the back to secure the thread.

Assemble the rest of the card with all the pieces we just created. Add some ‘white’ Adhesive-Backed Seasonal Sequins. Use a mini Dimensional on the right side of the sentiment and a little liquid glue on the left to keep it attached to the wreath.

Add a simple message to the card insert. A few spiders will add a little creepiness. Put a spider or 3 on the envelope too. And now you have another Boo!-tiful card to send to someone for Halloween.

See you tomorrow for 2 super fun cards to make with small kids. HINT: Use the Tulip Builder Punch.
