Good morning – I hope you’re having a great weekend! I have been super busy this week and missed some of my blog posts, so thanks for checking back today! I made a pretty encouragement card with the awesome Stampin’ Up! Forever Fern bundle and the Forever Greenery designer series paper. The pretty designer series paper is on the retiring list and while the bundle will no longer be offered, both the stamp set and dies are in the new 2021-2022 Annual Catalog. So get the bundle now for the 10% discount! You can find the supplies I used at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.
I cut a panel of the Forever Greenery designer series paper with the third largest Stitched Rectangles dies and adhered it to an Old Olive mat. I adhered the layered DSP panel to the front of a Pretty Peacock card base. I stamped the round leaf cluster from the Stampin’ Up! Forever Fern cling stamp set in Pretty Peacock ink on a Basic White panel and cut it out with the coordinating die from the Forever Flourishing dies.
I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Forever Fern stamp set in Pretty Peacock ink on Basic White and cut it out with the second smallest long die from the Stitched Rectangles dies. I positioned the label with the leaf cluster die cut and a wooden leaf cluster from the In Good Taste Elements to make the arrangement for the card. I adhered the wooden leaf cluster with glue dots, the die cut leaf cluster with dimensionals and adhered the label on top with dimensionals.
I used the small detailed butterfly from the Brilliant Wings dies to cut a butterfly from Old Olive card stock. I adhered the butterfly to the label and leaf with glue dots and finished it with a Cinnamon Cider enamel dot.
For the inside of the card, I stamped the round leaf cluster from the Stampin’ Up! Forever Fern stamp set in Pretty Peacock ink in the lower corner of a Basic White panel. I stamped it again on a post it note to create a mask and fussy cut the mask. I covered the leaves with the mask and stamped the long leaf cluster in Old Olive ink on top. This makes the Old Olive leaves look like they’re behind the Pretty Peacock leaves. I adhered the panel to an Old Olive mat and then adhered them bot to the inside of the card.
The Stampin’ Up! Forever Fern stamp set and dies are a favorite from the current catalog and I’m glad to see them returning! And I have to mention that the sentiments in this set are really beautiful too! And I’m so happy with the Brilliant Wings dies – every card can use a beautiful butterfly!!
