I know, “gorgeousness” is not really a word, but the Eden’s Garden collection is so pretty it needs new ones. This collection is part preview, part limited time offer. The stamp set and dies will be in the new mini catalog that is coming out in January. But the specialty designer paper and cotton paper and garden gems are only available while supplies last or until January 3. Let’s look at how pretty that paper is.
Eden’s Garden Joy
The first project is a joy-fold card. I have so much fun making this fun fold, especially since it allows me to use lots of different patterns of paper in the collection. The Blackberry Bliss cardstock compliments both the Evening Evergreen and the Soft Succulent colors that dominate the Eden’s Garden collection.
I used the specialty paper for the back of the card and the side panel. For the front, I used a bit of each of the colors of cotton paper. This paper is like linen, but softer. Yet, it die cuts beautifully even with the detailed wreath die included in the bundle.
I used some gold embossing for the sentiment and the banner is also cut with a die in the set. I didn’t have the Eden’s Garden gems when I made this card, so I used some with a touch of gold to complement the gold foil in the designer series paper.
Here is a link to the measurements and instructions for making a joy fold card.
A Tasteful Take
This second card really shows off several of the patterns in the specialty designer series paper pack. I used a sketch based on ovals, but instead of the oval shapes, I substituted the Tasteful Labels dies.
The base of the card is Evening Evergreen with a panel of Eden’s Garden DSP. On top of that I added a horizontal strip of paper, 1″x4″. Next, is a layer of Soft Succulent cardstock stamped in the matching ink with one of the leaf sprays from the stamp set.
The focal point is the series for the three shapes, two cut from the DSP and the final one stamped in Tuxedo Black with a sentiment from the set. Sending Hugs is such a great sentiment. I know I’ll use that one a lot.
For the final touch, I tucked a folded piece of Evening Evergreen woven ribbon under the Soft Succulent panel on the right-hand side. And of course, I had to decorate the panel of my envelope to match. #cutthepaper.
If you like this paper as much as I do, be sure to order soon. You can use the code found on the right-hand panel of this page. Until next time, “Ink up!”
