I used the Wondrous Wreath and Holiday Home stamp sets from Stampin’ Up! to create my card to share today.
My card design was inspired by Retrosketches #137.
The colors for my card were inspired by The Paper Players #218.
I started by embossing a panel of Whisper White card card stock with the On Point Embossing Folder. I adhered the embossed panel to a panel of Brushed Gold card stock, then to a Whisper White card base with SNAIL.
I stamped the sentiment from the Holiday Home Photopolymer stamp set in VersaMark Ink on a Whisper White panel, sprinkled it with Gold Stampin’ Emboss Powder and heat embossed it. I trimmed the edges of a panel of Brushed Gold card stock with the Tiny Wave Stampin’ Trimmer Rotary Cutting Blade, then I adhered the stamped panel to it. I punched the corners with the corner rounder on the Envelope Punch Board and set the panel aside while I worked on the wreath.
I stamped the full wreath image from the Wondrous Wreath photopolymer stamp set in VersaMark Ink on a panel of Brushed Gold Card Stock, sprinkled it with White Stampin’ Emboss Powder and heat embossed it. I let the image cool down, then stamped the partial wreath image in VersaMark Ink over the first image, sprinkled it with Gold Stampin’ Emboss Powder and heat embossed it. I followed the same process for the berries, only I used Cherry Cobbler Stampin’ Emboss Powder.
I cut the wreath image out with the Wonderful Wreath Framelits Dies and I placed it where I wanted it on the White panel. I used a pencil to trace around the inside of the wreath and I used the center wreath die to cut the center out of the panel.
I adhered a panel of Cherry Cobbler card stock to the back of the Brushed Gold/Whisper White panel, then adhered the layered panel to the card front with SNAIL. I adhered the wreath image to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals, then cut the Joy sentiment with the Wonderful Wreath Framelits Die (don’t forget to add a piece of wax paper between your die and card stock) from Gold Foil Sheets and adhered that to the wreath with Multipurpose Liquid Glue.
I stamped the sentiment and flower images from the Wondrous Wreath stamp set in VersaMark Ink on a Whisper White panel, sprinkled them with Gold Stampin’ Emboss Powder and heat embossed them, then adhered the panel to the inside of the card.

WOW – this card is absolutely STUNNING…..cool idea for the layered embossing, I’m going to try that!…

Thanks Michele, have fun embossing!! 🙂
Exquisite, elegant, stunning… can you tell I liked it? LOL I had not seen the wreath gold embossed before. It is a truly beautiful card, Amy.
Thanks Debra, I thought that it was a little different too. So glad that you liked it. 🙂
Beautiful card Amy! I love everything about it!
Thank you Nada!! 🙂
Wow! This is stunning Amy. This May May be my favorite! This is so gorgeous and says Christmas all over it. I will have to try this. You are so creative.
Thanks Mary, definitely give it a try! The layered embossing is really easy, just be sure to let each one cool down between stamping. 🙂
Have to echo the sentiment – WOW. Just turned out beautifully. Like the tiny detail of having your gold panel not go all the way around the white one. Just a little something different. And the layered embossing…very nice!
Thank you Mary!! 🙂
Such an elegant Christmas card! Really love the details that you put into this card! Two thumbs up on the embossed wreath! It was the perfect touch!
Thank you!! 🙂
Amy, this card is stunning!!! Thanks so much for sharing and explaining each step. Beautiful!!!
You are very welcome! Thanks for leaving me a comment. 🙂
This is great. So far I haven’t been a big fan on the wonderous wreathe–but now you’ve changed my mind. Love it inthe gold and with the embossing. Great card
Thanks Mary, I’m glad that you liked my glittery version. 😉
I think all the adjectives have been used to describe this card. Your ability to create such beautiful things is an inspiration. This card is very special! Thanks for sharing.
Thanks so much Melanie!! 🙂
Amy this is very beautiful! You have so many great details on this card. Very nice!
Thanks Terri! 🙂
Beautiful, love how the gold just shines. So elegant! Thanks for joining us this week at The Paper Players!
Thanks for stopping by to leave me a comment! 🙂
OK girl……this is gorgeous……..and then some!
Thanks Linda! 🙂
Oh my goodness!!! This is a stunning card (as Melanie stated, all the adjectives are used, lol) 🙂 I absolutely LOVE how you embossed the gold and then the white, it was unusual but so, so very effective and the cherry cobbler is the perfect topper. Your idea to just have a peek of the tiny waved trimmed brushed gold from either side of the main panel added great interest too. Amy, I could go on and on about your beautiful card, but let’s just say – it is AWESOME!!
Thanks you Jill!! 🙂
Gorjuss!!! Love it …Gina F
