Last Week’s Card & (Your) Cuppa – Forever Greenery

For last week’s Card & (Your) Cuppa project, I chose to use the fabulous Forever Greenery Suite (again!) from the Annual Catalogue

My colours are from the Forever Greenery DSP. The greens of Pretty Peacock, Shaded Spruce, Just Jade, Garden Green, Pear Pizzazz and Soft Sea Foam all combine with Whisper White.

Using one of the Greenery Embossing Folders, Whisper White leaves create a pretty background. A strip of the DSP on each side then creates a border.

The leaves are cut in the various greens using the Forever Flourishing Dies from the Forever Greenery Suite.

Lengths of the reversible ribbon, with the co-ordinating Pretty Peacock side facing out are then added. This ribbon isn’t from the Suite, but it works beautifully with the project.

Finally, a die cut shape from the Tasteful Labels Dies with a sentiment from the Many Mates Stamp Set is placed on top. The sentiment is in Just Jade ink to co-ordinate with one of the colours.

Finally, three Champagne Rhinestones are arranged to finish the project.

This is a great generic project, suitable for anyone. The sentiment can be anything you like and any shape too, not just a circle.

I’m really enjoying using this suite and may have to remove it from my desk to give other products a look in!

Last Week’s Card & (Your) Cuppa – Forever Greenery Suite

For last week’s Card & (Your) Cuppa project, I decided to use products from the new Forever Greenery Suite. This is a new suite that went live in the Annual Catalogue on 3rd June.

It uses the Forever Flourishing Dies and one of the two Greenery Embossing Folders. Along with these items, there is a fabulous stamp set, DSP and some pretty embellishments in the Suite too.

My colour combination is an assortment of greens – Pear Pizzazz, Mossy Meadow, Shaded Spruce and Old Olive. I combined these with Very Vanilla and Cinnamon Cider from the new ‘In Color’ Collection.

After attaching the embossed piece with Tear & Tape, the strip of In Color Ribbon was added across the project.

Next, the leaves were glued to a ‘helper’ piece in Pear Pizzazz. My helper piece was a piece of cardstock, cut using the Classic Label Punch in Pear Pizzazz. You could use an offcut or any other shape, just make sure it’s in the same colour.

Once all of the leaves were attached, the helper piece was trimmed down. As it’s the same colour as the piece behind, you don’t need to trim it down as it should be sufficiently hidden.

The leaves were then attached to the embossed section using Mini Dimensionals.

I love the simplicity of this project to make, but it looks very stylish. This is a great project for all occasions and you could add a sentiment of your choice. I think it would look really good in other colours, maybe in shades of blues or purples.
