Stampin’ Up! Forever Fern Hello Card Video Tutorial

Good Morning! Today I’m sharing a sneak peek of the fabulous Stampin’ Up! Forever Fern bundle on a card that I made during my Facebook Live video tutorial yesterday afternoon. The Stampin’ Up! Forever Fern bundle will be available on June 3, 2020 when the new 2020-2021 Annual Catalog goes live. You can find the supplies used to create this card at the bottom of my post (though several items will be available after June 3, 2020) along with the sizes of cardstock used.

Here is the Facebook Live video showing how I made the card:

I also posted the video to my YouTube Channel and you can view it here if you prefer.

I started by cutting and prepping the card base. Since this is a Z-Fold card, I scored a 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″ Pear Pizzazz card base at 2-1/8″ and 4-1/4″ and creased it Mountain-Valley style with my bone folder. Then I prepared the die cuts for the card front. I stamped the top of the long leaf branch from the Stampin’ Up! Forever Fern cling stamp set (available June 3) in Pear Pizzazz ink on Whisper White and cut it out with the coordinating die. I stamped the round leaf branch in Pretty Peacock ink on Whisper White and cut it out with the coordinating die. I cut out the medium leafy branch from the Forever Flourishing Dies (available June 3) from vellum card stock and I popped the berry branch from the Forever Gold laser cut specialty paper (available June 3). I stamped the Hello sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Forever Fern stamp set (available June 3) in Pretty Peacock ink on Whisper White and cut it out with the smallest scalloped rectangle from the Stitched So Sweetly dies. I cut out two more scalloped rectangles and adhered them to the back to create a thicker label kind of like chipboard.

I adhered the Forever Greenery designer series paper (available June 3) panels to the card base with the striped panel in the center. I embossed the Soft Sea Foam panel with the leaf branch embossing folder from the Greenery embossing folders (available June 3) and adhered it to the Pretty Peacock panel. I adhered the prepared die cuts to the embossed panel with glue dots and popped the label on with dimensionals. I adhered the panel to the front with Tear & Tape adhesive (I wanted it to stick securely) and finished it off with three Gilded Gems.

For the inside of the card, I stamped the round leaf stamp from the Stampin’ Up! Forever Fern stamp set (available June 3) in Pretty Peacock on a Whisper White panel after stamping off twice and the long leaf stamp in Pear Pizzazz after stamping off once. I adhered the decorated panel to the inside of the card, so that it is surrounded by the beautiful leafy Forever Greenery designer series paper (available June 3). I also stamped the lower corner of a Whisper White envelope to match the inside of the card (except without stamping off).

The Stampin’ Up! Forever Fern bundle (available June 3) has gorgeous sentiments and wonderful distinktive images and die cuts and is sure to be a favorite! You can get yours when the new 2020-2021 Annual Catalog goes live on June 3. And if you loved the Forever Greenery designer series paper, you can get a sample in my catalog share!
