Yes, you reading this! You make me smile! Each and every day while I enjoy what I do creating cards. I also LOVE IT because of all of you! Your comments, your likes, your following….it all means the world to me and I love it! I’m happy that you are all enjoying what I love too! I may be crazy, even a hot mess sometimes, and don’t have it together on my Facebook Lives but it’s still fun (and that’s life, am I right?!?!)!!!
By the way, Daily Dose of Stampin’ Therapy on my Facebook has “ended” as I can’t keep up with 5 days a week and start back with classes and events as things open back up and Brad goes back to working in the office. BUT I am going to change the name to…Laura’s Dose of Stampin’ Therapy or Your Dose of Stampin’ Therapy. It will still happen just not daily. Cast your vote in the comments below for the new name!!!
This card uses the Forever Fern Stamp Set and many other items in the Forever Greenery Suite!!! I have been loving all of these products. Those shades of greens and blues are just stunning!
I started with a Whisper White card base measuring 4-1/4″ x 11″. I went with this size because it uses less ribbon to go around the card at 4-1/4″ rather than 5-1/2″. Next, I layered on a 2″ x 4″ piece of the Forever Greenery Designer Series Paper on the left hand side! Any of the pieces in the pack look great as I have tried many! Then I tied some Just Jade Ribbon around the card front and layered over the designer paper! The ribbon goes to the inside of the card!
For the embossed image, I used Just Jade cardstock and placed it in the Greenery Embossing Folder on the bottom end. It does actually emboss a smidge of the top greenery as well….and that’s why the greeting is placed in the upper left corner. 😉 There is a way to hide anything! I layered the embossed image onto Shaded Spruce cardstock. For that fabulous you make me smile greeting, I used the Label Me Lovely Punch and just trimmed it down! The greeting was stamped in Shaded Spruce Ink and added with Stampin’ Dimensionals. To finish it off, I added some Champagne Rhinestones on the edges!
