The 2021-2022 Annual Catalog is here!! The Beauty of the Earth Suite is the first Suite featured in the new catalog and destined to become a favorite. I created this card to show off both the gorgeous Beauty of the Earth Designer Series Paper and the Beauty of Friendship bundle.
Start with a Cinnamon Cider cardstock card base. Cut a Merry Merlot cs panel and Beauty of the Earth DSP panel and glue them together. Die cut a Cinnamon Cider cs large tree trunk & branches and a Beauty of the Earth DSP tree canopy with the Beautiful Trees dies. Glue the tree trunk to the center of the panels and then glue the tree canopy overlapping the tree branches slightly above the start of the trunk.
Wrap the panels with a piece of the wide 7/8″ Smoky Slate Texture Ribbon overlapping the die cut tree trunk using Stampin’ Seal to secure the ends on the back of the panels.
Cut a Basic White cs sentiment panel and a Merry Merlot cs sentiment panel layer. Stamp the sentiment from the Beauty of Friendship stamp set in Merry Merlot ink on the Basic White cs panel. Glue the stamped panel to the Merry Merlot cs panel. Use Stampin’ Dimensionals and glue dots to add the sentiment panels to the card front overlapping the wrapped ribbon and die cut tree trunk. Add Champagne rhinestones to the card front on the Smoky Slate Texture ribbon under the sentiment panels.
Don’t forget to add a Basic White cs inside panel to write your message. I stamped the sentiment from the Beauty of Friendship stamp set in Merry Merlot ink and added a strip of DSP to the inside and back of the card to pull the theme through.
I hope you enjoyed my Beauty of the Earth Thinking of You card. You can order the Beauty of Friendship Bundle and the Beauty of the Earth DSP in my Online Store.
