Beautiful Coordination with the Forever Greenery Suite

One of our favorite suites from the new 2020-21 Stampin' Up Annual Catalog features beautiful images of lush foliage and a stunning variety of green hues. The coordinating products make it easy to create beautiful cards and gift packaging like a professional! 

Here’s what you’ll need to complete this project on your own:

One piece of double-sided 12” x 12” DSP (you’ll want the patterns to coordinate, as you’ll see both sides)

2 pieces of white or vanilla cardstock (depending on what coordinates with your DSP) cut at 3” x 4”

2 pieces of coordinating cardstock cut at 3 ¼” x 4 ¼” for layering behind white/vanilla pieces

White or vanilla card envelope

Paper Trimmer with both cutting and scoring blades (we prefer the Simply Scored tool for scoring)

Stamp set/stamps & coordinating ink

Coordinating ribbon and embellishments (rhinestones, pearls, etc.)
Card: cut DSP 5 ½” x 12” – score at 4 ¼” & 8 ½” – cut on a diagonal from the 8 ½” score mark down to about 1 ¼” on the outside edge of the 3 ½” section. Apply sticky tape to bottom and edge of 3 ½” panel to create the gift card pocket.

Bag: 6 ½” x 8 ½” – scored at 2”, 4”, 6”, & 8” on the 8 ½” side; turn and score at 2” on the 6 ½” side – cut on all four score lines (2”, 4”, 6”, 8”) up to the 2” score line and cut out the small rectangle in the corner. Apply sticky tape to ½” side tab and outside of 3 of the 4 flaps (exclude the one that will be on the outside/bottom of box). Gather two opposite sides of the top of the box together and either punch holes for ribbon or notch on the sides to wrap the ribbon around the top (like a milk carton).

The remaining piece of 6 ½” x 3 ½” DSP will be used to adhere to the outside flap of your envelope to coordinate with the card. 

Have fun creating! Feel free to post photos of your creations here, we'd love to see them! You can purchase any of the products by clicking on the pictures below.
