Well, hello again! Today’s card is a sympathy card is a sympathy card made with the fabulous Forever Fern Bundle, the Forever Gold Laser-
Cut Specialty DSP and Detailed Bands Dies
– and a few other products as well. Let’s take a look…

Forever Fern Bundle – #1

The Forever Flourish Dies that are part of this bundle and the Forever Greenery DSP are what makes this card pop. Let’s break it down to the step by step…

  • The card base is Shaded Spruce card stock 4 1/4 x 11 scored at 5 1/2
  • Layer a panel of Soft Sea Foam card stock 2 x 5 1/2 with liquid glue
  • Add a panel of Forever Greenery DSP 1 3/4 x 5 1/2 over the Soft Sea Foam with liquid glue.
  • Die cut a ‘flourish’ using Whisper White card stock and the Forever Flourish Dies.
  • Pull out a couple of the fantastic gold pieces in the Forever Gold Laser-Cut Specialty DSP
  • Die cut a banner from Just Jade card stock using the Detailed Bands Dies.
  • Stamp your sentiment: mine is from the Prized Peony stamp set, on a scrap of Whisper White card stock and die cut with another of the Detailed Bands Dies.
  • Layer the sentiment onto the Just Jade banner with liquid glue. Put dimensionals on the back and set aside to ‘work’ your other elements. Once you have determined how you want the card to look, adhere them to the card front as shown.
  • Add Gilded Gems to enhance the focus of the sentiment and your card front is complete!

For the inside…

Forever Fern card inside – #2
  • Adhere a panel (4 x 5 1/4) of Just Jade card stock to the inside of the card base.
  • On a panel of Whisper White card stock, stamp your sentiment in Just Jade ink. Again I stayed with using the Prized Peony stamp set.
  • Stamp one of the leaf flourishes in stamped off TWICE Just Jade ink – from the Forever Fern stamp set.
  • Adhere this Whisper White panel with liquid glue to the card inside – Voila! the card is complete :O)

For the envelope…

Forever Fern Bundle – #3
  • Stamp the front of the envelope using the same leaf stamp used on the inside of the card, stamping off at least twice.
  • Cover the envelope flap with panels of Forever Greenery DSP and trim to fit. Your card is now done, done, done!

This Forever Fern Bundle, the Forever Gold Laser-Cut Specialty DSP, the Forever Greenery DSP are all part of the Forever Greenery Suite of products – and I highly recommend it :O)
