More Wreath Builder Card Ideas

Welcome! A couple months ago, I did a video showing several ways to use the brilliant Wreath Builder products from Gina K Designs. Well I am back with more ideas! This product is SUCH fun to use and can be used in many ways.

Swoon! I just love the Wreath Builder Templates (SSS | GK)! If you didn’t see my original video, please check it out HERE. Today I just expand on those ideas and step things up a bit.

To do these techniques, I used the Wreath Builder Templates (SSS | GK). I used them along with the coordinating stamp sets but you could use them with stamps you may already have. But those templates are a must-have!

My first card shows how to create a window in the center of the wreath… and a tri-fold opening. I created the wreath with the Gina K Autumn Wreath Builder Stamp Set (SSS | GK) and Gina K Inks (SSS | GK). I added a gold heat embossed sentiment on the inside of the card, allowing it to show through a circle I die cut on the front.

Inside, the card folds open and reveals a spot for a personal message. This card is 4 1/4″ x 4 1/4″… so I used a 4 1/2″ x 4 1/2″ envelope. The sentiment on the envelope is from the Gina K Happy Mail Stamp Set (SSS | GK).

This next card is my favorite. I simply created a wreath with the Wreath Builder Templates (SSS | GK), Autumn Wreath Builder Stamp Set (SSS | GK), and the original Wreath Builder Stamp Set (SSS | GK)… but this time cut it out so it looked like a wreath. I also created a hole on the front of the card to show the sentiment inside.

The sentiment is from the Gina K Inspiring Poppies Stamp Set.

You can also use the Wreath Builder Templates (SSS | GK) to create quick cards with just a couple of stamps. Here, I used two leave images from the Gina K Just a Little Stamp Set (SSS | GK) and created a winter wreath. I added a simple sentiment and gems. Easy!

My last card shows that you can use the Wreath Builder Templates (SSS | GK) to fill a background… not just for a wreath. Doing this stamping with the Gina K Autumn Wreath Builder Stamp Set (SSS | GK) was such fun!

  1. I always stop by after the video so I can look at the close-up of the cards that you made…

    Such wonderful cards….tfs

  2. Great video and great cards! I bought the first set shortly after you published your video on it. While I love the results, making a card takes so much time – for each different element I had to ink, pick up the paper and turn it 8 times. It took close to 2 hours to make a card. I ended up doing a second one with just eye-balling my secondary stamps to save time. Wish I could be 100 % supportive, but I do love the results!

  3. Hi Jennifer. Wow beautiful cards. The Wreath Builder stencils are amazing, I like that you can purchase them separately now. Thank you for all the ideas. The Wreath you hand cut, looks amazing, it looks like you used a Die!! I wish I could cut that well. 💕❤️

  4. I have the wreath builder stamp/template set and love it. I have to try using larger images like you did on the leaf card. Thanks for all your inspiration, Jennifer. Beautiful cards.

  5. Beautiful cards! I have a mini Misti and NEED the larger one, or a stamp platform before I can use the templates. Thank You for another wonderful video.

  6. Love your cards,they are beautiful. The wreath builder stencil is great. Great technique. Thank you for the great video.

  7. Beautiful cards, brilliant template, I’ve spent ages tracing circle dies trying to get smooth round wreaths but ending up with slightly heavy in places & bald in spots excuses for wreaths, you’d sack me as a florist. Thank you for finding the assistance needed which is just short of me spending you all the supplies with a begging note.x

  9. Thanks for another very helpful video! I wasn’t sure if I “needed” the wreath builder set when it first came out but the more I see it used and see the type of stamps Gina K is releasing so we can build even more wreaths, the more I want the sets. Of course, your beautiful cards and great videos showing how easy it is to use these sets make it pretty much impossible for me not to want to start building wreaths. 🙂 Thanks!

  10. Such beautiful cards! Especially love the look of the one you cut out. I have the templates and original stamp set – looks like I need to add the Fall stamp set to my collection! Thanks for your ideas and the time you took to make a video.

  11. Jennifer,
    I am really liking the Wreath builder stamp set and template. I really didn’t get a chance to watch how to do it until this Gina K’s video and was very impressed with the results. I like how you started at the top side to make the wreath. I’m going to purchase her new stamp set and template. Thanks for the great ideas to use with this wreath builder template.

  12. Wow! These were so beautiful and looked easy. That’s a very good bargain if you buy the bundle. I’m interested in buying the templates as they can save allot of time. Thanks for all you do!

  13. What else can I say? I have the wreath builder set and templates and had to order them when I watched your first video…Amazing, amazing, amazing! You make it look so easy! I too have the mini Misti and just got the Stamparatus from Stampin’ Up and templates should fit in it just fine. Am still recovering from foot surgery so am unable to go to play in my stampin’ space. Can’t wait til I get the “go ahead” to be able to be on feet again! Thanks, Jennifer, for making my healing time so easy!

  14. Thanks for showing more of these and giving us more ideas. These wreath builders are fun to use and can be addictive, as you say! Love your cards!

  15. The Gina K Wreath Builder is better than sliced bread. I’m a klutz but the templates are so easy and great to use !

  16. I so appreciate all your ideas for using the stamping bits and pieces that I so often I overlook. Brilliant! Thank you!

  17. Your cards are so beautiful! I missed the post on the wreath builder, so this is new to me! What a fab idea! Ordering from a USA company is a no,no for me, (postage rates and possibly custom charges), and I can’t find a European seller. I’m wondering if trying to make my own template would be breaching copyright? It’s a fab idea and your cards are just a delight to behold! God bless you and yours.

  18. Dear Jennifer,
    thank you very much for sharing another beatifull idea with us. You are so amazing and your ideas so inspiring, It’s unbelievable. I am always looking forward to more ideas and videos comming from you.
    Your Passion and ideas are magnatic (I am not a native speeker so I am not sure if that is the correct word for it).
    Unfortunatelly I can not get those stencils in Germany, so I have to find a way to get them.
    But nevertheless, again thank you very much!

  19. Dear Jennifer, thank you very much for sharing another beatifull idea with us. You are so amazing and your ideas so inspiring, It’s unbelievable. I am always looking forward to more ideas and videos comming from you.
    Your Passion and ideas are outstanding and magnetic.
    Unfortunatelly I can not get those stencils in Germany, that is really a pitty, so I have to find a way to get them.
    But nevertheless, again thank you very much!

  20. Such wonderful tips and finished cards! My only comment/question is regarding the ink colors you used. You started off telling us, then showing the name at the top if we were quick enough to notice, then you just kept changing colors. What colors did you use on the second and third card? Thank you!

  21. These cards are all amazing. I especially like the one you did covering a full panel with the falling leaves. It is an awesome design and I can’t wait to give it a try. Thanks for all you do to inspire the stamping world.
