Create a card with greenery using the Stampin' Up! Forever Fern Stamp Set

  • Forever Fern Stamp Set
  • Coordinating Forever Flourishing Dies

Here's a fun card I created using the Forever Fern Bundle from the Stampin' Up! Annual Catalog.  Most of the samples I've seen use wonderful shades of Garden Green, Pear Pizzazz, Just Jade, Pretty Peacock, and Shaded Spruce, but I wanted to use some different colors to show that the Forever Fern Stamp Set is more versatile than just using it for greenery.  I love how this turned out.  The Forever Fern Stamp Set is a Distinktive stamp set which means it has details that looks like you you used multiple stamps to create the detailed shading acquired with just one pass with a Distinktive stamp.  Distinktive stamps are a patented product, exclusive to Stampin' Up!.  Event new stampers will find that Distinktive stamps easy to use with great results.      

Card idea using alternative colors for Stampin' Up! Forever Fern Stamp Set

The basecard for this card is Gray Granite Cardstock.  Then a layer of Merry Merlot, and the image layer is Whisper White.

I used the three different Forever Fern Stamp Set and the Forever Flourishing Dies to create a variety of stems and berries in Petal Pink, Gray Granite and Petal Pink.  I glued several flat onto the Whisper White layer.  Others I popped up on Mini Stampin' Dimensionals and Dimensionals.

To finish the card, I Stamped a sentiment in Merry Merlot onto a label made with a Rectangle Stitched Die.  Then I created a White bow using the White ribbon from the Flowers For Every Season ribbon Combo Pack.  To add a little bling, I included three of the White Faceted Gems from the Elegant Faceted Gems pack.
