Forever Fern For All

I’ve had fun playing with the Forever Fern stamp set, part of the Forever Greenery Suite in the upcoming 2020-2021 Annual Catalogue from Stampin’ Up!. Today I’m showing you 3 versions of the same card.

This version is what Stampin’ Up! calls #simplestamping.  It uses just stamps, paper and ink. In some ways it can be trickier to keep it so simple, as there is nowhere to hide anything!

This version is slightly stepped-up.  The images are stamped the same way, but they are on a separate layer and adhered to the card base. The sentiment is also stamped separately, cut out and added with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  They are little details, but they make a difference.

This version is stepped up yet again.  It’s got Gold Foil mats for the image and sentiment layers, and I’ve added 3 Gilded Gems.  

One could certainly go further and add more to the series, including cutting and layering some stamped images, some of the Gold trim from the suite, etc.  But I like maintaining the overall simplicity even in the stepped-up versions.

Which one do you like best?  Let me know in the comments!
