A Little Note with Forever Greenery Suite
Today's card is so pretty! I had mixed feelings when I first saw the Forever Greenery collection suite in the new Stampin' Up! annual catalog. The more I looked at it the more I fell in love with it and now I absolutely adore this suite! So versatile, the designer series paper can be used with so many color combinations and the stamp and die sets are amazing!
The colors are Pretty Peacock, Pear Pizzazz and Sahara Sand and coordinate beautifully with the Forever Greenery designer series paper.
I used the following cuts of cardstock:
Pretty Peacock: 8½” x 5½”, scored at 4¼”
Forever Greenery Designer Series Paper: 2" x 5½”
Very Vanilla: 2⅝" x ⅞"
Very Vanilla: 8" x 5", scored at 4" (inside of card)
I also used the following stamps and die:
"A Little Note" sentiment from the Butterfly Gala stamp set
Rounded leaves stamp from the Forever Fern stamp set
Matching rounded leaves stamp from the Forever Flourishing die set
Trim your Pretty Peacock cardstock to 8½” x 5½” and score at 4¼”
Trim your Very Vanilla cardstock to 8" x 5" and score at 4"
Use your bone folder to get a nice crisp fold in your card base so it lies flat
Using the score function of your paper trimmer, score lines ¼" apart on the front of your card base to give a little extra dimension
Trim your Forever Greenery designer series paper to 2" x 5½”
Trim your Very Vanilla cardstock to 2⅝" x ⅞" for your sentiment (remember to check your scraps!)
Using the "a little note" sentiment from the Butterfly Gala stamp set, stamp in Pretty Peacock ink onto your Very Vanilla cut cardstock
Grab the rounded leaves stamp from the Forever Fern stamp set and stamp it on a scrap piece of Very Vanilla cardstock in Sahara Sand ink
Use the rounded leaves matching die from the Forever Flourishing die set to die cut out the leaves
Apply Stampin' Seal to the back of your trimmed designer series paper and adhere to your card base, approximately ⅜" from the right
Grab your Stampin' Dimensionals and apply a few to the back of your sentiment strip and adhere approximately 1" from the bottom, lining it up to almost the right side of your card, centered over your designer series paper
Using Mini Stampin' Dimensionals, adhere your die cut rounded leaves above and to the left of your sentiment strip, with the stem of the leaves slightly overlapping the top left corner of your sentiment strip
Apply a small amount of Stampin' Seal to the inside of the front of your card, towards the fold, and using a strip of approximately 20" of the gold thread from the Forever Greenery Ribbon Trim Combo pack, loosely wrap it around your card base, vertically
Apply Stampin' Seal to your 8" x 5" Very Vanilla cardstock and carefully, matching your card base scored line to the score line on your Very Vanilla, adhere down
Then, as a finishing touch, using your Take Your Pick tool, apply a few basic pearls around your stamped, die cut rounded leaves
I hope you enjoyed today's card. It is very quick and easy to make and this design could be repurposed for so many options!
