My card today is a version of a card that we did at the Stampin’ Up! OnStage at Home last weekend.  Normally we would have had OnStage in Salt Lake City, but since this is not a normal year by any stretch, it was done virtually.  I have to give huge credit to Stampin’ Up! for a great event.  They went above and beyond with the content.

One of the stamping spots was a stamp along.  We were given the measurements to cut our DSP and other card layers for a surprise layout.  I loved the layout and decided to do it again with a different stamp set.  I think of the Forever Fern stamp set as the colors of the Forever Greenery Designer Series Paper.  So it took a reboot of my brain to totally change the colors.  I am happy with the changes.

I used Cinnamon Cider, Mango Melody and Bumblee as my inks and DSP.  The pattern in the Designer Series Paper seems to be the rough look I was going for with the colors of the leaves.  I got the Cinnamon Cider and the Bumblee from the In Color 6X6 DSP.  The Mango Melody comes from the Brights 6X6 DSP.  I love having the same pattern in all of the colors.  Although it would have looked just as good had I chosen different patterns.

I stamped directly onto the base card.  It is the Thick Very Vanilla card stock.  I alternated the different stamps and ink to create the pattern going up the left side of the card.  For the sentiment layer, I used the same stamps and colors, but I stamped off to give it a softer look.  The sentiment is from the Forever Fern stamp set and is stamped in Cinnamon Cider.  Before adhering it to the top and bottom DSP layers, I wrapped the Linen Thread around a few times and added a multi-loop bow.

The measurements for the DSP are: 1 1/4 X 3 1/4 for the top and bottom pieces (Cinnamon Cider and Bumblee).  The middle layer is Mango Melody and is 1 X 4.  The sentiment layer is 2 1/4 X 3.

Thank you very much for stopping in today.  Please come back on Monday for some new projects I will have ready to share.
