Forever After with Forever Fern

Stampin Up Forever Ferns Anniversary Card -Rosanne Mulhern stampinup

Today I’m sharing a pretty card created with the Forever Fern Bundle.  I’m sending this card to my daughter, Elizabeth and her husband, James for their 3rd Anniversary.  It would also be a perfect bridal shower or wedding card, especially if created in the bride’s colors.

Forever Fern is on my top 5 list of new products from the 2020-2021 Annual Catalog.  I was first drawn to it by the beautiful Forever Greenery Designer Series Paper.  However,  the stamps and dies soon captured my heart as their are so many color variations besides shades of green that you could use to create projects for just about any occasion.  Today, I chose Balmy Blue to accent the greens.

Forever Fern Bundle #154094

Materials & Measurements

  • Balmy Blue card base:   8 1/2″ x 5 1/2″, scored at 4 1/4″
  • Basic Black card stock:  5 1/8″ x 3 7/8″, 5 1/4″ x 4″ (inside)
  • Whisper White card stock:  5″ x 3 3/4″ (cut 2)

Details

  • Stamp the sentiment from Forever Fern stamp set, using Memento Tuxedo Black ink on the bottom right of the Whisper White panel.
  • Heat emboss with clear embossing powder.
  • Glue to the Basic Black card stock and adhere to the Balmy Blue card base with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

  • Stamp an assortment of leaves and berries.  I used Old Olive, Pear Pizzazz and Balmy Blue ink.
  • Cut these with the coordinating Forever Flourishing dies.  I also cut a few from vellum card stock.
  • Layer and adhere the die cuts to the upper left corner.  Mini glue dots work well here.
  • Glue a small bow, also using glue dots.
  • I colored a few small rhinestones with a black Sharpie and lined them on the upper right side.  I think this gives a little formality to the card.  I’m also terrible at trying to place sequins or rhinestones randomly!

  • The inside sentiment is from the So Sentimental stamp set.
  • Since the Forever Greenery Designer Series Paper is primarily shades of green, I created my own DSP to coordinate with the color scheme of my card.  I randomly stamped a busy floral pattern on Whisper White card stock and trimmed the inside of the card with a small strip.

  • I trimmed the left side of the envelope front with another “homemade” strip of DSP.
