Woven Ribbon Wreath Color Challenge Card


Woven Wreath Color Challenge

Here is another Christmas in July card.  I made this one for today’s Splitcoaststampers Color Challenge CC384 Very Vanilla, Cherry Cobbler and Gumball Green.  The dessert option was to make a Christmas card, so I decided to make a woven ribbon wreath card.  When I was a little girl growing up in Miami, we used to weave palm fronds to make hats, bowls and wreaths.  I don’t know what the technique is called, but you thread loops through loops to make a chain.  I searched the internet and found this video from May Arts which is pretty easy to follow.  For my wreath, I used 1/4 inch Satin Ribbon by Offray.  One little useful tip, I used a 1 3/4 inch circle punch as a base for my wreath to help keep its shape instead of mounting it right on the card.

For my card base, I used Very Vanilla cardstock and the Stampin’ Up! Labels Collection Framelits die.  I folded the cardstock and placed the die so that the fold was just below the cutting edge and ran it through the Big Shot.  I cut another one and adhered it to the front of the card and then trimmed the bottom edge.  I decided to make a Cherry Cobbler frame instead of adding layers.  I used painters tape to hold the dies in place and then ran it through the Big Shot.  I glued the frame to the card base and added the wreath.  I used a 1/8 in circle handheld punch to make the berries and added a little bit of Crystal Effects to give them a little dimension.  I tied the bow with Stampin’ Up! 1/4 inch Bravo Burgandy Ribbon and attached it to the wreath with a glue dot.  The sentiment is from Stampin’ Up! Winter Memories stamped in Cherry Cobbler.

  1. Amazing card! Thanks for sharing the “how-to”. Now I need to check out the challenge on SCS because I just made a Christmas card today using those colors. 🙂 Great minds think alike.
