Stampin’ Up! Forever Fern card for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Hi Stampers, today we have a color challenge that I was pretty excited for.  It is using Pretty Peacock, Pear Pizazz and Just Jade.  All three colors coordinate with the Forever Greenery Suite in the new annual catalog.  This set is my favorite suite and after playing with all my goodies today, I am ready to go make more cards with all the beautiful items that come in this suite of products.

The color challenge:

Stampin’ Up! Forever Fern:

The recipe:

Card base: Whisper White 4-1/4 x 11, scored at 5-1/2

Front panel: Whisper White 4-1/4 x 5-1/2

DSP top panel: Forever greenery 4-1/4 x 5-1/2

DSP bottom panel: Forever Greenery 4-1/4 x 2-1/2

Sentiment: Whisper White die cut with the second largest Stitched Shape Circle Die

The details:

  • Stamp your leaves using the stamps from the Forever Fern Stamp set onto  Whisper White card stock as follows:
  • Large leaf  image: Pretty Peacock
  • Round leaf image: Just Jade
  • Small leaf image: Pear Pizazz
  • Die cut the largest leaf die from the Forever Flourishing Dies using Whisper White Card Stock
  • Die cut all the inked leaf images using the dies from the  Forever Flourishing Dies set
  • Punch out the wreath (the one with the solid center) and some leaves from the Forever Gold Laser-Cut Specialty Paper

The sentiment:

  •  Stamp your sentiment using the saying from All Things Fabulous stamp set onto the Whisper White circle

Putting the card together:

  • Adhere your 4-1/4 x 5-1/2 piece of DSP to the  4-1/4 x 5-1/2 Whisper White panel
  • Attach the 4-1/4 x 2-1/2 piece of DSP to the bottom part of the White panel
  • Wrap a piece of Just Jade ribbon around the panel where the two seams of paper come together
  • Mount this panel to the front of the card with adhesive
  • Attach the Gold Wreath to the front of the card with liquid Glue
  • Attach the sentiment piece on top of the center of the gold wreath with Dimensionals
  • Adhere your white die cut leaf to the left of the sentiment but attaching it to the actual sentiment
  • Adhere your stamped green leaves to the left of the sentiment but attaching the leaves to the actually sentiment

Finishing touches:

  • Tuck in a few of the gold leaves from the Forever Gold Laser-Cut Specialty Paper
  • Add a Just Jade bow on top of the cluster of leaves
  • Color one medium Rhinestone with your Just Jade Stampin Blend and adhere it to the sentiment piece
  • Add a few Gold Metallic pearls here and there and your are done with your card
