Welcome! So glad you stopped by. Today I have another Forever Fern Pairing for you. The Forever Fern Bundle is so versatile. I am pairing with Butterfly Gala today. Forever Fern & Butterflies conjure up an organic vibe for me. The card today is quite simple and I am sure that you will enjoy making these in many color combinations.

 

Ready for today’s card? Here it is.

MEASUREMENTS

  • Shimmery White cardstock: 4-1/4″ x 11″ scored at 5-1/2″
  • Gray Granite cardstock: 4″ x 5-1/4″ for card panel frame
  • Shimmery White cardstock: 3-3/4″ x 5″ for card panel
  • Shimmery White cardstock:: 4-1/4″ x 5-1/2″ for stamping elements

CREATING PIECES & PARTS

  • Emboss Shimmery White card panel with Scripty 3D embossing folder.
  • Stamp 3 different images from Forever Fern in Gray Granite ink on Shimmery White. TIP: Using the Stamparatus to stamp all 3 images at the same time is a great time-saver.
  • Die-cut images using the Forever Flourishing dies.
  • Stamp butterflies from Butterfly Gala in Flirty Flamingo ink on Shimmery White.
  • Punch butterflies out using Duet Butterfly punch.
  • Stamp sentiment from Butterfly Gala in Gray Granite on Shimmery White and fussy cut. TIP: Fussy cutting is not difficult. Using the super sharp Snips, open them up and slowly cut while moving the paper. Your scissors arm does not do a lot of moving around.

ASSEMBLY

  • Layer as shown. RECOMMENDATION: The NEW Stampin’ Seal tape runner is perfect for layering. It runs smoothly and fits nicely in my hand. I highly recommend this tape runner.
  • Add 2 leaf die-cuts to the embossed backgound using Liquid Glue.
  • Use Dimensionals behind 3rd leaf die-cut and add to the lower left side of the cluster.
  • Wind Silver Metallic Thread around fingers 5 times and adhere to the back of the butterfly with Glue Dots. TIP: Wind the metallic thread loosely around 2 and 3 fingers, pinch at the base, and secure with a glue dot on both sides of the pinch.
  • Add Dimensionals behind the butterfly and tuck into the arrangement.
  • Use Mini-Dimensionals behind sentiment and layer as shown.

I hope you enjoy making this card as much as I did.
