Forever Greenery Designer Series Paper Card

I am hosting a Zoom customer appreciation event on Saturday and I needed a couple of Make & Take projects for the party. The thing about a Zoom party is that the Make & Take projects have to be formatted carefully. Since I can't include stamped images in the packages, I wanted to come up with a design that would allow any stamped sentiment that would fit the banner to be used. 

I am allowed to punch, emboss and die cut pieces to send in the packages, so this is where the *Forever Greenery Designer Series Paper excels! The paper actually has designs that fit the *Forever Flourishing Dies so that I could die cut some foliage to add to the wreath I created from the *Gold Hoop Embellishments.

You can see them better in this photo:

  • The card base is *Just Jade cardstock, one of the new In Colours for 2020 - 2022. The background layer is one of the designs from the *Forever Greenery Designer Series Paper.
  • The vertical panel is made from Soft Sea Foam cardstock embossed with one design from the *Greenery Embossing Folders.
  • On the *Gold Hoop Embellishment, the *Forever Flourishing Dies have die cut a variety of foliage from the *Forever Greenery Designer Series Paper which is added to the hoop with Glue Dots. The same dies also die cut other greenery from vellum, Pretty Peacock cardstock and Smoky Slate cardstock. These are also attached with Glue Dots to the *Gold Hoop.
  • The sentiment stamp is from the *Forever Fern stamp set and is stamped in Pretty Peacock ink on Whisper White cardstock.

The next Paper Pumpkin kit will be a very cool one! Not only will it be designed in consultation with our CEO, Sara Douglas, but it will also come in a special box, with extra elements left over with which to decorate the box so that you can use it to send some sunshine to someone else! Check out this video for more information:


To get in on this special Paper Pumpkin issue, you must subscribe, or reactivate your subscription by June 10, and May's Paper Pumpkin sold out long before the final subscription date, so I'd advise doing it as soon as possible! Then start saving up yellow sunshine treats to put in your box and get ready to brighten someone's day!

  1. I love your design Heather! Papers that have elements the coordinating dies can cut out is such a great idea isn't it? Good old SU! Lovely to see the Forever Greenery suite being showcased too - it's a favourite of mine. Vicky x

  2. I love that, too, especially now when we can't put together kits that include stamped images for our customers! Thanks for the kind comments, Vicky! Always appreciated!

  3. I love this card - I think because of the design and the green/blue colour combination. I've been cardmaking for probably 15 years now and crafting all my life - most recently making 3D projects but heading up to my craft room now to make some cards. BTW I grew up in Kelowna (live in Maple Ridge now) and went to highschool and university with Doug Findlater.

  4. So glad you like this design! I know Doug and his wife. His daughter-in-law is a good friend and we craft together all the time! Enjoy your craft time!


I love to read your comments and get to know you better! Thanks for adding one!
