Always and Forever

Click here for the full recipe: Always and Forever

Thank you for taking the time to stop and visit my blog. This card is a great quick card for a wedding or anniversary. The cherry cobbler ink and card stock contrast nicely with the gold trimmed black foil label.

I used the Stampin’ Up ® Forever Blossoms Stamp Set and the Parisian Flourish Embossing Folder to create this card.

After embossing on cherry cobbler card stock, I stamped Always and Forever on a piece of scrap whisper white card stock and cut it with a stitched oval die.

I punched two labels, one out of black foil and the second out of gold glimmer paper. Cut one in half to layer behind the other. 

Notice the rose metallic “messy” loops behind the label. Once everything is adhered embellish with champagne rhinestone basic jewels and you have a great card for the next wedding or anniversary in your life.

Which do you like - black with a gold sliver or gold with black?

Spring in Paris - who wouldn’t want to be there? I almost felt like I was there with this beautiful Parisian Blossoms Suite. For this card I used the dies from the Parisian Bundle Suite, Parisian Blossoms Specialty Designer Series Paper (you may notice the champagne foil highlights in this paper.) and the Champagne Rhinestone Basic Jewels.

 First I aligned the die onto the middle of the black foil sheet making sure there was an edge of black on all for sides.
 This picture is how it looked after the die cut was removed.
Here the Designer Series Paper (DSP) is adhered to the black foil sheet. The hole is covered! This is a great way to save the more expensive papers.
This is what it looks like from the back. 
All die cutting is done (notice the i for merci is on the tool, just waiting to be put together.

Cherry Blossom Wedding Card

Thank you so much for stopping by my blog and I hope you will take a moment and click the ‘Follow Me” button for updates on new cards I’d like to share with you.

I have to say that I love the Parisian Blossoms Suite, in the January-June 2020 Mini Catalog. Look for upcoming posts featuring the Eiffel Tower (I may have gotten a bit carried away cutting them from our black foil paper.)

Items I used from this suite of products are stamps and dies from the Forever Blossoms Bundle, Petal Pink Metallic-Edge Ribbon and Champagne Rhinestone Basic Jewels.

I cut the designer series paper at about 2.5” and used both sides, I love the script, it’s in French with a metallic finish. Adhere this to a piece of cherry cobbler card stock with a piece of ribbon to cover the seam then adhere in the back with SNAIL or glue dots; next adhere onto a petal pink card base.

All ready to stamp and cut! I used Memento Ink because I colored with blends.

I hope you enjoyed this project! The full recipe is on These Are My Stamps if you are interested in recreating this lovely card. 

Need a catalog and don’t have a Stampin’ Up demonstrator? I would be honored to be your demonstrator and it would be my pleasure to put a catalog in the mail to you.
