Happy Stampin’ Wednesday!
Today’s project uses another of the beautiful new In Colors! I am in love with Soft Succulent. Today, not only did I use it as my card base and background, I used it in full color and as a stamped off image on the leaves of my bouquet.
This project was inspired by a card on page 80 in the upcoming 2021-2022 Annual Catalog. Are you in need of a catalog? They are available for purchase under the Catalogs tab, or you can earn one for free by scheduling a virtual party or virtual card workshop with me!

The Soft Succulent card base measures 8-1/2″x5-1/2″ and is scored and folded at 4-1/4″.
The Soft Succulent card front measures 3-1/2″x5″. Run it through the embossing machine using the Ornate Floral 3D Embossing Folder and cut it into strips. I cut my strips at 1″, 3/4″, and 1/2″ and placed them in various orders and off set them when I glued them onto the card base.
On a scrap of Basic White, I stamped my bouquet image using Basic Gray, and stamped the flower and leaf fillers using Pale Papaya, Fresh Freesia, and Soft Succulent.
Next, cut out the bouquet using the coordinating Penned Flowers dies and adhere to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.
On another scrap of Basic White, stamp the sentiment using Soft Succulent and cut out using the Double Oval Punch. Adhere it to the card front, sort of tucked under the bouquet, using Tear and Tape Adhesive.
Tie a simple show lace bow out of Baker’s Twine and adhere to the card front using a Glue Dot.
This is a great card for mass production. The stamps and dies make it easy work while watching your favorite show on TV, listening to music, or listening to an audio book. I made about 30 of these, some with different sentiments, in about 2-1/2 hours. I think the thing that took the longest was adding the adhesive to all of the strips because I used liquid adhesive.
