Good Friday Morning! I hope you’re ready for a nice relaxing weekend. I made another card with the new Stampin’ Up! Eden’s Garden bundle! In today’s card, I used the pretty cling stamp set and new Soft Succulent cotton paper to create a panel of richly textured paper to go with the lush Ever Eden specialty designer series paper. You can find the currently available supplies I used at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.
I randomly stamped the matte side of the Soft Succulent cotton paper with the large leaf sprig from the Stampin’ Up! Eden’s Garden stamp set in Evening Evergreen ink. I crinkled it in a ball a couple of times to get lots of wrinkles and gently opened it up. I covered a Basic White panel with an adhesive sheet, pulled off the cover and adhered the crinkled cotton paper to the front, leaving in crinkles and pressing it firmly. I trimmed the excess cotton paper and cut 1/2″ off the panel to have a strip for the inside.
I used the border die from the Eden dies to cut a strip of brushed metallic gold foil and adhered it to the back of the cotton paper panel and adhered them both to an Ever Eden specialty designer series paper panel with liquid glue. I adhered the layered panel to the front of a Soft Succulent card base with liquid glue.
I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Eden’s Garden stamp set in Evening Evergreen ink on Soft Succulent and cut it out with the second smallest angled Tailor Made Tags die. I cut out a reinforcer form Evening Evergreen and adhered it to the front. I cut another tag from Basic White and decorated it by adhering two leaf sprigs die cut from Evening Evergreen cotton paper. I adhered the Basic White tag to the back of the Soft Succulent tag and wrapped Soft Succulent and Evening Evergreen ribbon through the hole. I tied the ribbon with gold trim, making a bow, and adhered the tags to the card front with dimensionals.
For the inside of the card, I stamped the leaf sprig in Evening Evergreen across the bottom of a Basic White panel after stamping off twice each time. I adhered the Soft Succulent cotton panel to the left side and adhered the panel to the inside of the card.
The the stamped and crinkled cotton paper technique is one I’ve used in the past with tissue paper. The cotton paper is a little stronger, but still very lightweight so it’s very fun to play with – a nice addition to the Stampin’ Up! Eden’s Garden collection that is available while supplies last.
