Today I have a different twist on the Forever Fern Suite with stenciling. I was inspired by a piece of fabric. How could I create the textured fabric with Stampin’ Up! products? It is easier than it looks. And here is my resulting card combining a gold laser-cut piece from Forever Fern and Stenciling.
The color combination makes me think of antiqued woven textiles.
