Hi Stampers. I have another simple card for you today featuring the Pierced Blooms Dies. Since we are nearing the end of the 2020-2021 Annual Catalog, I’ve been on a mission to use up as much of the retiring DSP as possible. Lately, you have seen a multitude of ways you can use the Forever Greenery DSP.
This card starts with a Granny Apple Green card base with Forever Greenery DSP on the front. One side is just a little wider than the other, it was a great way to use up leftover pieces.
The focal point on the card is layer of of Granny Apple Green that was die cut using the Stitched So Sweetly Dies. This scalloped rectangle was adhered to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. A Basic White layer was cut to fit inside the scalloped rectangle. The sentiment “Happy Birthday” (from the Peaceful Moments stamp set) was stamped in Pretty Peacock ink.
Using the Pierced Blooms Dies, I die cut a variety of leaves and flowers in Pretty Peacock, Cajun Craze and Bumblebee CS. I did alot of mixing and matching until I had a look I liked. Using glue dots, I adhered the flowers and leaves together and to the card front.
Here is a close up of the (Pierced Blooms) flowers to show you how wonderful these look. The dies cut and add the stitching in one easy step.
Stampin’ Tip: To save time, pick a few coordinating colors and place a 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″ in to the cut and emboss machine and place all the flowers (or leaves) onto the sheet and cut them all at once, out of each color. Use what you need for that project and add the remaining leaves and flowers into a clear envelope and store them inside the stamp case for use later.
Inside the card is a 4″ x 5-1/4″ layer of Basic White CS. The flowers in the lower corner are stamped in Bumblebee ink and the floral centers and sentiment are stamped in Cajun Craze ink.
Here is another version of the same card. The bases are very similar just the focal point and flowers were adjusted a little.
Instead of using the Stitched So Sweetly Dies, I used the Stitched Nested Labels. The sentiment also changed from birthday to thinking of you.
Here you can see where the (Pierced Blooms) flowers are very similar, I just used the leftover flowers and leaves from the first card.
