Stampin’ Up! Forever Fern Friend Card With Video Tutorial

I used the Stampin’ Up! Forever Fern stamp set bundle from the upcoming 2020-21 Annual Catalog to create my card to share today.  I did a video tutorial for making this card on my Facebook page yesterday.  I’ve also uploaded it to my YouTube Channel so you can view it there too!

My card design was inspired by The Paper Players PP492.

I started by embossing a panel of Whisper White card stock with the Tasteful Textile 3D Embossing Folder (available June 3).  I adhered the embossed panel to the front of a Thick Whisper White card base with Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  Then I adhered a rectangle from the Forever Gold Laser-Cut Specialty Paper (available June 3) to the front of the card with Multipurpose Liquid Glue so that it was centered over the embossed panel.

I adhered a small piece of ribbon from the Forever Greenery Trim Combo Pack (available June 3) to the card front with SNAIL and then stamped the leaf images from the Forever Fern stamp set (available June 3) two times each in Shaded Spruce and Soft Sea Foam inks on a panel of Whisper White card stock.  I cut the images with the coordinating Forever Flourishing Dies (available June 3) and then cut panels of Shaded Spruce and Pretty Peacock card stocks with two of the other Forever Flourishing Dies.  I snipped the Shaded Spruce and Pretty Peacock die cuts in half and then adhered the die cut pieces with Glue Dots to the card front.

I stamped the sentiment from the Forever Fern stamp set in Pretty Peacock ink on a panel of Whisper White card stock and then cut around it with one of the Stitched Shapes Dies.  I adhered the die cut sentiment to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals and then added Gold Glitter Enamel Dots around the die cuts to finish it.

I stamped the images from the Forever Fern stamp set in Shaded Spruce and Soft Sea Foam inks on a panel of Whisper White card stock to finish the inside of the card.
