This is the time of year I really love because of all the colorful flowers blooming all around. My flower garden is doing really well this year. I just hope we get a little rain soon!
This card is made with 2 of the new In Colors- Just Jade and Magenta Madness. The Forever Gold Laser-Cut Specialty Paper is so stunning! The Forever Gold Laser-Cut Paper really makes this card look difficult to make, but in fact this is a very simple card. You will see!
The new 2020-2021 Stampin’ Up! Annual Catalog will go live on June 3, 2020 at noon Mountain Standard Time. This is a pack of the Flowers For Every Season Memory & More Cards and Envelopes and includes 2 each of the 5 new In Colors and 10 Envelopes. We will be using one of the cards for our card base. No cutting necessary for the card base!
Measurements: In addition to the card base and envelope described above you will need: Just Jade Card Stock (CS): 5 1/4 x 4 inches; Whisper White CS: 4 x 2 inches; Magenta Madness CS: 1 1/4 x 3 1/2 inches and one panel of the Forever Gold Laser-Cut Specialty Paper.
The sentiment is from the Peaceful Moments stamp set. There are a number of nice sentiments, a perfect set for the beginner.
Two punches will be used: Label Me Fancy and Small Blooms.
Stamp the sentiment in Shaded Spruce ink.* Punch the sentiment out with the Label Me Fancy Punch.
*None of the In Color inks are available at the time of the writing of this blog. I would substitute Just Jade ink in place of the Shaded Spruce ink when it is available.
Punch 3 small blooms with the Small Blooms Punch. Note: I save my scraps like this one and donate them to a teacher who gives them to the kids to make art projects.
Use the Bone Folder to curl the edges of the flowers. This gives them a 3D effect.
To adhere the Forever Gold Laser-Cut Specialty Paper I used the TomBow Multipurpose Liquid Glue in minimal amounts on the back of the frame around the leaves, and on the back of the solid leaves. Make sure you place it down where you want it. If you move it, there will be exposed glue on the card. Turn the card piece over to rub the back and ensure the Gold Laser-Cut Specialty Paper is adhered completely.
Adhere the Forever Gold and Just Jade card piece to the Magenta Madness card base with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
Adhere the small blooms with Glue Dots. Tip: The easiest way to do so is to put the flower on the Glue Dot while it is still on the roll. Peel the Glue Dot and flower off and adhere to the card.
Adhere the sentiment with Stampin’ Dimensionals. And for the Bling! I used the Gilded Gems which are gold faceted gems. Tip: I find it to be very easy to transfer the gems from the sheet they come on to the card with the Take Your Pick tool.
And Viola! That is all there is to making this elegant and gorgeous card!
Thanks for stopping by today. There are many more pieces to the Forever Gold Laser-Cut Specialty Paper. I can’t wait to add them to future cards!
