You know I adore the Forever Fern Bundle of products.  I have used it several times.  Well, today  is one more.  I needed a special Congratulations card and went back to these awesome definition stamps.



I rarely  make a White on White card.  I did today, and actually made another one for my club cards.  I will be sharing that one later in the week.  But for this card, I felt the gorgeous colors I used to stamp, plus the beautiful DSP , needed a clean slate behind it.  The base card is Thick Whisper White, and the layer is regular weight Whisper White raised with Dimensionals.

I used the Forever Greenery Designer Series Paper as the grounding spot.  It is cut using the Stitched Rectangle Dies.  In person , the stitching detail around the edges shows up a bit more than here.  For the sentiment, I wanted a really pretty “Congratulations”.  I found this one in Celebration of Tags.  It is a new set in the annual catalog that matches the Trio of Tags Dies ,which carried over.  I didn’t use the matching dies, as I wanted just a bit larger background.  So I used one of my favorites the Stitched So Sweetly Dies.  Not only do I love the shape, but they have the stitching around the edge to match the Stitched Rectangle.

For the greenery, I used a variety of greens.  I used Pear Pizzaz, Just Jade, and Pretty Peacock for the various types of leaves.  I then used Soft Sea Foam with the splatter stamp from Forever Fern.  It is really soft and that was just enough splatter around the card.  I stamped it twice after each inking, so some spots are lighter than others.
