This is the third card we made at our stamp meeting a couple of weeks ago. Look at the background of this card. I just love it! It is a new die that is in the Stampin’ Up!® 2021/2022 Annual Catalog called Stitched Greenery. It doesn’t cut out a shape. It only cuts all those beautiful stitched leaves out of the background of a piece of card stock. I think it is fun and elegant and really adds some interest to the background of your card. Below is a close up.
I decided to pair the Stitched Greenery die with the Pierced Blooms dies. Pierced Blooms is a set of 25 dies that cut out flowers, leaves, a stem, a bow and the label we used on this card. I first cut a piece of Basic White card stock using the Stitched Greenery die. Then I cut out the flowers in Polish Pink, the centers of the flowers in Daffodil Delight and the stems and leaves in Granny Apple Green card stock. I layered all of them on top of the Stitched Greenery Basic White piece of card stock using Multipurpose Glue and then layered that on a Polished Pink card base.
Lastly, I stamped the sentiment from the Biggest Wish stamp set in Granny Apple Green Ink and cut it out using the label die from the Pierced Blooms die set. I adhered that using Stampin’ Up!® Dimensionals.
That Stitched Greenery die is going to be one of my favorites so you will probably see it a lot on my blog.
Don’t make me buy stitched greenery, don’t make me buy it. Such a pretty card!
Oh, my! How did I miss that background die? Gorgeous card, Susan. I love all the stitching and the bright, happy colors. (Don’t you love Polished Pink?)
