Forever Fern - Kylie's International Highlights Blog Hop

I'm excited to participate again in Kylie's Monthly International Blog Highlights!  I participated last year and was so excited to have been one of the top ten winners.  You can check out last months' card as well as my card for the Winners Blog.

You are able to VOTE for my card!!  The top ten winners will get to be part of an international blog hop so I would really appreciate you taking the time to Vote for me!!  Scroll down below, there is a button where you can click on and see all the participants and you get to vote for 5 projects! So 4 plus mine!!  Hint, hint.......

As always the theme is - Thank you.  What better time than now,  to send out a thank you cards.

I love the Forever Fern Bundle and Forever Greenery Designer Series Paper.  My card is a Gate Fold card with a beautiful belly band to hold it closed. 


  1. Cut Shaded Spruce cardstock 5 1/2" x 8 1/2" and score at 2 1/8" and 6 3/8".  Fold on the score lines to form card base.
  2. Cut 2 pieces of Designer Series Paper 2" x 5 3/8".  Adhere to the left and right hand side of card base using Stampin' Seal.
  3. Cut Whisper White cardstock 4" x 5 1/4".
  4. Stamp sentiment using Shaded Spruce ink.
  5. Stamp leaves in bottom right corner using Shaded Spruce and Pear Pizzazz (both stamped off once).
  6. Adhere to the inside of the card using Stampin' Seal.
  7. Cut Shaded Spruce cardstock 3/4" x 9 1/2".  Wrap around card base and adhere ends together in middle of front of card using Stampin' Seal.  Trim off excess.  TIP: You don't want to have the band too tight as it will make it hard to get on and off of the card.  
  8. Colour the white side of leaves on the Forever gold Laser-cut Specialty Paper - I used the wreath shape with leaves around edges.  I coloured leaves using Stampin' Blends Light and Dark Just Jade and Light Old Olive.
  9. Adhere some Gold leaves of different shapes and sizes to the front of the coloured leaves using Stampin' Seal.
  10. Adhere to band using Dimensionals.
  11. Cut out 2 1/8" Circle from Shaded Spruce cardstock from Layering Circles Dies
  12. Cut out 1 7/8" Circle from Whisper White cardstock using Layering Circles Dies
  13. Stamp leaves on Whisper White circle using Just Jade and Pear Pizzazz ink (both stamped off once).
  14. Cut out "Thanks" sentiment from Shaded Spruce cardstock and Gold Foil Sheet using Well Written Dies.
  15. Adhere Shaded Spruce cut out to Gold Foil cut out piece - just slightly below top of Gold using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  You just need small dots of glue around the letters.
  16. Adhere to Whisper White circle using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.
  17. Adhere to Shaded Spruce circle using Stampin' Seal.
  18. Adhere to band using Dimensionals.
