Forever and Always Gratitude Card–DCWV

Good afternoon people! I am here with you today to share a new project for the recent releases by DCWV.  This stack is just GORGEOUS!


It’s called “The Forever and Always Stack” and it is made up of black and white, a bit of dark grey and holographic silver (this treatment is SO cool!)  I love that it has a modern spin with chevron patterns and bold, clean lines.  Take a look at this card I made using F&A.

I fussy cut some of the flowers from one piece of cardstock and layered them over the swirl cardstock.  Then I used a Hampton Art stamp (clock) and embossed it on some grey DCWV cardstock.  I die cut the stamp and the polka-dot with spellbinders, and layered them with dimensional adhesive.  I die cut a piece of grey cardstock with the spellbinders fancy labels, stamped and heat embossed the word “Gratitude” from a Hampton Art Studio G cling set.  It is popped up with dimensional adhesive.  I tied a bow with my crafter’s companion and adhered it under the sentiment.  Lastly, I rounded the upper right and lower left corners.  Finished!!

Here is a second view of the dimension:

  2. you're right - this stack is gorgeous! the colors - mmm mmm mmm! i love what you did with it. and it's nice to see your Hampton Art love!

  3. Gorgeous card! I am however confused that the card looks more sage green than grey....Is it just the pic?

    1. Thank you so much! To answer your question: it could be an combination of monitor differences as well as the adjustments I made to allow you to see the subtle pattern in the background piece. I assure you it is grey in person. : ) Thanks for your comment, I so appreciate you taking the time!


Thanks for your comments- I love them!
