Forever Fern

Well this is a very exciting time in the Stampin' Up! year - it is the launch of the new annual catalogue! This year's catalogue is full of gorgeous goodies. As a demonstrator, I was able to order select items from the new catalogue a month early. One of the items I ordered was the Forever Fern Bundle. I think it is going to be one of my new favourites. The stamps are Distinktive so they have a realistic look to them and there are coordinating dies to cut out the leaves.

For today's card, I used the Forever Fern Bundle as well as the coordinating Greenery embossing folder and Forever Greenery Designer Series Paper. It is such a versatile set.

I started with a new 2020 -2022 In Colour cardstock, Just Jade, for my card base. I added a piece of the Forever Greenery Designer Series Paper which I matted with a piece of Shaded Spruce cardstock. I then added a strip of Whisper White cardstock that I embossed using the new Greenery embossing folder. It is a new style designed to fit into the upcoming Mini Stampin' Cut & Emboss Machine. It comes in a pack of 2 folders and is 3 3/8 inches wide. The strip of cardstock I used was 4 inches wide so I simply embossed the cardstock twice. The images lined up perfectly.

I stamped my sentiment onto a scrap of Whisper White cardstock using Shaded Spruce ink and cut it out using the new Tasteful Labels Dies. I matted this with the swirly die from the Painted Poppies Dies cut from Shaded Spruce cardstock. I stamped some of the sprigs of leaves onto some scrap Whisper White cardstock using Shaded Spruce and Pear Pizzazz ink. I cut them out using the corresponding dies from Forever Fern Bundle. I also cut some leaves out of Vellum cardstock. I attached these under my sentiment piece and then popped the sentiment up on dimensionals. To complete my card, I added a few gems from the Flowers for Every Seasons Gems pack. They are a mixture of bright green and clear gems. The clear gems look like little raindrops on the leaves.

This card will be one of the cards in my on line class for the month of June. If you are interested in joining in on this class and seeing the other cards we will be making, just let me know. Also, if you would like a copy of the new catalogue and do not have one yet, I would be happy to make sure you get one.
