Fun and easy cards with Forever Gold Laser-Cut Specialty Paper

Hello and welcome to today’s blog post, which features the Butterfly Gala stamp set, Butterfly Duet Punch, and products from the Forever Greenery Suite! Since we have a few days before the January-June 2021 Mini Catalog goes live, I thought I would show some love to some favorites of mine from the 2020-2021 Annual Catalog! This is a fun and easy card that you can use any design from the Forever Greenery DSP and Forever Gold Laser-Cut Specialty Paper card fronts!

To start, the base layer is a 4” x 5 ¼” piece of Forever Greenery DSP, any design:

The next layer is Soft Sea Foam cardstock, cut at 3 ½”x 5” and embossed with the Subtle 3D Embossing Folder, and the next layer is one of the card front pieces from the Forever Gold Laser-Cut Specialty Paper:

For the card fronts, you will need:

1. Cut a ½” x 3” piece of Crumb Cake cardstock, use the Banner Pick-a-Punch, stamp the sentiment in Shaded Spruce ink, and wrap the gold trim from the Forever Greenery Trim Combo Pack around the end three times, tying into a knot.

2. On Soft Sea Foam cardstock, pick a butterfly design, stamp in Shaded Spruce ink, and use the solid stamps in Soft Sea Foam ink, the bottom stamped twice (to make it a little darker) and the top once. Use the Butterfly Duet Punch to punch out.

First adhere the embossed cardstock to the DSP slightly skewed, then use a Fine Tip Glue Pen to adhere the gold laser-cut paper slightly skewed in the opposite direction:

This completed piece is adhered to a Crumb Cake cardstock card base, cut at 4 ¼” x 11”, and scored at 5 ½”. The sentiment and large butterfly are adhered with dimensionals and the small butterfly with a mini dimensional:

For the inside, stamp the sentiment in Shaded Spruce ink, the butterflies in Soft Sea Foam and Shaded Spruce inks, and adhere a ¾” x 4” piece of the same DSP design as the card front along the bottom:

Here are a couple more cards, just changed the DSP and gold laser-cut designs:

Fun and easy cards, right?? I made six of these cards, just changing the laser-cut paper and DSP designs! Trying to figure out how to use the card front cuts from the laser-cut paper can be overwhelming and not compliment all DSP designs, so I thought using a piece of embossed cardstock between the two would help with this. I chose the Subtle 3D Embossing Folder because it’s just that, subtle, and wouldn’t clash with either the DSP or gold laser-cut paper. For the designs of the laser-cut paper, like the leaf one above, you can easily use glue dots to adhere insead of the Fine Tip Glue Pen!

I am an Independent Stampin' Up! Demonstrator located in Norfolk, Virginia and was first introduced to Stampin' Up! in 2004 when I attended my very first card class with my Mother-in-Law and I was immediately hooked! I first started out by making simple holiday cards and over the years as my stash has grown, so have my card and craft making skills. It has always warmed my heart when family and friends love my cards, but they actually keep them! In 2016 I decided to become a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator and figured I could just do it for a hobby, but now I am going to branch out for all to world to see. So grab your favorite beverage, sit in your favorite chair, and join me as I share my cards and crafts with you! Enjoy!
