 Ah! This card. So much work. But I do love how it turned out.

Combining several Stampin' Up! products made the creation of this card possible. It's all in the unbeatable way that embossing folders, Designer Series Paper, stamps, ink colors, dies and embellishments work together. A perfect blend.

Another contributing factor to the charm of this card is that the card base itself is a little different, enabling a unique use of the beautiful Designer Series Paper.

The interplay between the elements on the main flap of the card overlapping the pretty DSP makes it even more delicate.

Following is a tutorial on how to recreate this card.

Soft Seafoam cardstock
White cardstock
Forever Greenery Designer Series Paper

Beautiful Friendship stamp set (Page 115, Annual Catalog)
Forever Fern (Page 110, Annual Catalog)

Pretty Peacock ink
Pear Pizzazz ink

Die Cut/Embossing Machine
Forever Flourishing dies (Page 175, Annual Catalog)
Painted Labels dies (Page 177, Annual Catalog)
Greenery Embossing Folder (Page 184, Annual Catalog)
Metallic Pearls (Page 156, Annual Catalog)
Stampin' Dimensionals

Cut a piece of Soft Seafoam cardstock to 5 1/2" x 7". Score it at 4 1/4". Fold on the score line, creasing it well with a bone folder.

On the inner edge of the card, adhere a 1 1/2" x 5 1/4" strip of Forever Greenery Designer Series Paper, with even margins at the top, bottom and right side.

Cut a piece of Soft Seafoam cardstock to 2 1/2" x 5 1/4" and emboss it with the Greenery Embossing Folder. Adhere this to the flap on the front of the card.

Stamp desired leafy pieces in Pretty Peacock and Pear Pizzazz onto white cardstock. Cut them with the coordinating dies.

Cut a swirly circle using the die from the Painted Labels die set from Soft Seafoam cardstock. In the center of this circle, stamp the sentiment in Pretty Peacock.

Adhere as desired the two leafy pieces to the back side of the circle. Use Stampin' Dimensionals to attach it over the embossing so a bit of the swirls falls over the DSP.

Add three Metallic Pearls near the sentiment.
