Hey everyone! Happy Thursday!! I hope your week is going well. Were you able to catch my Facebook Live this morning? If not, you can catch the replay here. Today we played with that gorgeous suite of products from the Forever Greenery Suite. This is such a beautiful suite and that stamp set is stunning!! I absolutely love this whole suite!!
Here are the measurements for the card:
- Card base in Shaded Spruce cardstock cut at 8 1/2′ x 5 1/2″, scored at 4 1/4″
- Forever Greenery DSP cut at 4″ x 5 1/4″
- Whisper White cardstock cut at 3 3/4″ x 5″ for the inside
I originally had intended to create just the treat box for the video and then at the last minute created a card to showcase more of the gold die cuts, but the more I thought about it, the more I thought I should do both. The card is just two pieces of paper, a die cut and a punch. I glued the DSP to the card front using the new Stampin’ Seal. I have to say I really like it, and if you’re a fan of the ATG style adhesive gun and adhesive, you’re going to LOVE this one! It’s easier to hold and the adhesive is just as strong as the ATG.
Once that was glued down, I popped out one of the die cuts from the Forever Gold Laser Cut Specialty Paper and added that it to the card front with dimensionals. I then stamped the sentiment from the Forever Fern stamp set in Shaded Spruce ink and the leaf image in Soft Sea Foam ink on a scrap of Whisper White cardstock. I punched it out with the 2″ circle punch and glued it to the die cut. I trimmed a piece of the gold twine from the Forever Greenery Trim pack and tied it in a bow and added it to the card with a Mini Glue Dot. To finish off the front, I sprinkled on some of the gold Metallic Pearls.
For the inside, I just stamped the same leaf image in the Soft Sea Foam ink on the lower left corner and also on the envelope. I left the sentiment off until later.
I love the detail of these stamps! They just make the image come to life. Now for the adorable pizza box. I love that so many of our products coordinate together, and the Gold Pizza Boxes are perfect for this!
Here are the measurements for the layers:
- Shaded Spruce cardstock 1 cut at 3 1/4″ x 3 1/4″ for the top and 4 at 3/4″ x 3 1/4″ for each of the sides
- Forever Greenery DSP 1 cut at 3″ x 3″ for the top and 4 cut at 1/2″ x 3″ for the each of the sides
I wanted a tag for the front, so I repeated the sentiment and leaf stamping on another scrap and punched it out with the 2″ circle punch. Then I took my Detailed Trio punch and punched the top of the circle to create a hole for the ribbon. I then glued all the layers together and adhered the side panels to the box once I assembled it.
I glued the top panel layers together and then ran a strip of adhesive down the middle on the back side of the layers. I cut a strip of the ribbon, about 12″ long, and leaving about 2-3″ at the top, laid the panel down and brought the ribbon up over the front. I threaded the tag on and then using a piece of the gold twine, tied a bow at the top of the ends of the ribbon to lock in the tag. To make it easier for the bow, tie it in a knot first, and then add your loops. That way you aren’t fighting the thread while trying to tie your bow. I then glued that down to the top of the box. Next I took one of the gold hoops and using Mini Glue Dots, I adhered down the gold sprig of leaves from the die cuts. I cut out the leaves in a scrap of Shaded Spruce and one in Vellum cardstock, and add them with Mini Glue Dots. I added Mini Dimensionals to the back of the hoop just behind the leaves and one at the top behind the top of the vellum and then adhered it to the box top. I added some more of the Gold Metallic Pearls and it was done!
