I’m trying to force spring with this card showcasing Stampin’ Up!’s Colorful Seasons stamp set and Emerald Envy. Here in Nebraska, we’ve had three days in the seventies and tomorrow we are expected to get snow! Yuck! Bring on spring and summer and the green leaves.
On a Whisper White card stock base (5 x 3 ¾) I stamped the solid large leaf from Colorful Seasons many times with Emerald Envy ink, creating a background. I then used the outline stamp and stamped over the leaf with Archival Black Ink.
I layered that stamped piece onto Silver Foil (5 ½ x 4). I wrapped a piece (about 5 ¼ inches) of Emerald Envy Crinkled Seam Binding – attached a glue dot to each end of the ribbon and adhere to the back of the card. This can then be glued to the Emerald Envy base – 11 x 4 ¼ folded in half.
I stamped the sentiment in Emerald Envy ink on Whisper White card stock and die cut it with a large circle from the Stitched Shape Framelits Dies. This was layered onto a black circle (die cut from the Layered Circles Framelits). And, finally, it was adhered to a Silver Metallic Foil Doily. This piece was popped up onto the card base with dimensionals. I finished off the ribbon with a small piece of Emerald Envy (about 4 inches) Crinkled Seam Binding. I slipped it under the ribbon and tied a bow. I call it a faux bow.
Thanks for stopping by today. I hope you enjoyed my pop of spring.
