The January-June 2021 Mini Catalog has begun and I chose to use the gorgeous Always & Forever Bundle for this week’s Global Design Project Color Challenge.
Start with a Night of Navy cs card base. Cut the Petal Pink cs and Soft Sea Foam cs panel. Dry emboss both panels with the Subtle 3D embossing folder and then glue them to the card base.
Stamp 3 large flowers, 3 medium flowers, 3 large leaves, and 5 small leaves from the Forever & Always stamp set in Memento Black ink on Basic White cs. Color all the images with the Stampin’ Blends and then die cut them out with the Always dies. Add Wink of Stella to the flowers centers for sparkle.
Build the floral bouquet slightly above center by adding your flowers & leaves with glue and Stampin’ Dimensionals. Then add a piece of Night of Navy cs to a piece of Foam Adhesive – I cut both down to just fit the ‘Always’ word before adhering them together – and then die cut out the ‘Always’ with the Always dies. Then die cut out some Night of Navy cs small flowers (around 11-12). Add the foam ‘Always’ to the center of your flower bouquet and add some of the small Night of Navy cs flowers around the bouquet.
Stamp the sentiment from the Forever & Always stamp set in Night of Navy ink on Basic White cs. Use your paper snips to fussy cut out and separate the sentiments. Glue the sentiments on separate pieces of Petal Pink cs & fussy cut out the layer around the sentiments and glue them to bottom right corner of the card front. Use glue dots to add three die cut Night of Navy cs flowers around the sentiment. Add Champagne Rhinestones to the center of the small flowers around the floral bouquet and sentiment.
Don’t forget to add a Basic White cs inside panel to write your message. Cut a Basic White cs inside sentiment panel and stamp the sentiment from the Always In My Heart stamp set in Night of Navy ink. Use the Dark Petal Pink Stampin’ Blend to add color to the stamped panel’s edges and then glue to the inside panel. I also stamped & colored the large flower and small leave images from the Forever & Always stamp set to the lower right corner of the inside panel and center of the back of the card to pull the theme through.
