I have been having so much fun with the Perennial Essence Suite! The stamps, the designer paper and even the vellum! Using designer paper in fun different ways makes it fun and fabulous! Here I created this card with 3 panels of beauty…don’t you think?!?!? Thanks to Debbie Jones for the inspiration on this card!
I’m loving this color combination as well!!! Blackberry Bliss, Flirty Flamingo, and Petal Pink are the colors I used!
I started with a Flirty Flamingo card base measuring 11″ x 4-1/4″. Next, I cut the Perennial Essence Designer Series Paper into 1″ x 5″ pieces. I layered those onto Blackberry Bliss measuring 1-1/4″ x 5-1/4″ and adhered them to the card front. It is easier to get even placement when you adhered the right and left one first and then place the center one down. Another great tip is to lay them all out as you wish and then pick up one at a time to add adhesive.
For the greeting, I die cut a Stitched Nested Label in Very Vanilla and stamped the greeting from the Floral Essence Stamp Set. I used Blackberry Bliss Ink. The greeting was added with Stampin’ Dimensionals. Next, I stamped the flower and leaf onto the Perennial Essence Vellum. Be sure to stamp on the dull/rough side rather than the shiny/brighter side. Also, it is probably best to stamp this first and then assemble the card. This will allow the ink to dry on the vellum as it does take a bit longer since it is a slick surface. Using the coordinating Perennial Flower Punch, I punched out the flower. Using the Leaf Punch, I punched out the leaves. Check out this post for more flower/leaf options! The flower was added with Stampin’ Dimensionals too! I finished off the card with a few Pearls and a Perennial Essence Floral Center!
I stamped the flower on the corners of a piece of Very Vanilla to place on the inside of the card! This ties together the front of the card and inside for that perfect look! Stamp the flower on your envelope too!!!
