Graceful Garden is Retiring, Oh My
Stamping Around the World Blog Hop, Lilypad Lake

Create with Connie and Mary Thursday Challenge # 561 Perennial Birthday

Welcome to the Create with Connie and Mary Thusday Challenge #561.  This week we are using Fresh Fig, Daffodil Delight, and Crumb Cake.


One of the things retiring this year is the 6 x 6 Designer Series Papers for all of the families, Brights, Neutrals, Subtles, and Regals, and In Colors.  I decided to use some of these papers for my card today.

Perennial Birthday is carrying over to the new catalog!

The card base is Fresh Fig.  It measures 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 and is folded at 4 1/4.

The Whisper White layer is 3 7/8  x 5 1/8.  

Glue 1" x  3 3/4" strips of designer paper on a 3 3/4 x 5 piece of Whisper White.  I used Crumb Cake from the Neutrals pack, Daffodil Delight from the Brights pack, and Fresh Fig from the 2017-2019 In Color pack.  Adhere this to the slightly larger white panel.  Add this panel to the card with dimensionals.

The saying is from Perennial Birthday.  Stamp in Fresh Fig on Whisper White.  Cut out with the new Stitched Nested Labels.  Add with dimensionals.

Now add flowers made by stamping the same color as the paper using Fresh Fig and Daffodil Delight.  Fussy cut.  Add leaves of Vellum made by using the Leaf Punch.
