Stampin’ Up! Forever Gold DSP and Forever Fern Card

The star of this card is the Forever Gold Specialty Designer Series Paper from the new 2020-2021 Annual Catalog, page 152. It is so elegant and easy to design with. Enjoy!

The Paper

  • Garden Green Cardstock: 11″ x 4 1/4″, scored at 5 1/2″
  • Forever Greenery Specialty DSP: 5 3/8″ x 4 1/8″ cut centered with the largest Stitched Rectangle Die
  • Whisper White Cardstock: 5″ x 5/8″ and the 3rd smallest smooth circle from the Layering Circles Dies
  • Pretty Peacock Cardstock: the 3rd smallest scallop circle from the Layering Circles Dies

That’s done!

The Stamping and Assembly

  • Adhere the Stripe Rectangle Stitched Die to the card front with Mutipurpose Liquid Adhesive.
  • Adhere the Gold Leaf Cut Out to the DSP with Stampin’ Seal (page 162 of the new catalog – Snail will work, too). Apply adhesive to the circle portion of the cut out. That’s all you need.
  • Adhere the Pretty Peacock Scallop Circle to the Gold Leaf Cut Out.
  • Stamp the sentiment in Pretty Peacock on the Whisper White Circle and pop it on the Pretty Peacock Scallop Circle with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  • Add Flowers for Every Season Gems. These are Just Jade from the new In Color Collection that coordinates with the Forever Fern Suite. They have an iridescent shimmer that plays well with Pretty Peacock (but not the camera) and there is a pop of gold on the faceted top that is hard to see in the photograph. Tip: I used Multipurpose Liquid Adhesive by applying a small drop on the cardstock where I wanted to add the gem and then applying the gem. You can use “balled” mini glue dots, too.

On the Inside

  • Apply the left over remnant (don’t you love using every little bit of your supplies that you can?) from the Stitched Rectangle DSP to the inside of the card with Multipurpose Liquid Adhesive. It will give you a little wiggle room to move those thin spots in place.
  • Adhere the Whisper White Panel inside.
  • Adhere the Gold Laser Cut Leaf in the corner with Multipurpose Liquid Adhesive on the center of the leaves.
