Story of Elegance 

Happy Friday!  I’m so happy to end the week sharing more card crafting fun.  I’m particularly excited today to share new products that will debut next month in our 2020-2021 Annual Catalog.  Over the next few posts I’ll be giving you teeny peeks into some of what you’ll see when you get your happy hands on our gorgeous new catalog.  Without a doubt, I know you are gonna love it!

Okay, so let’s get started.  Today I created my card using items from the new Forever Fern Bundle comprised of the Forever Fern Stamp Set  and Forever Flourishing Dies.  Next month, you’ll save 10% by purchasing these items together as a bundle.

Drum roll please…………



If you love leaves, you will love this set!  The stamps feature our trademarked DistINKtive stamps.  These stamps give you photo-realistic style images and their special texture give added depth and dimension in a single step.  And look at all the coordinating dies.  There are 14 of these beauties!  Take a closer look at the detail in these dies.  Such great texture.

For today I focused on one die and one stamp from this bundle.   Just enough to whet your appetite.  There’s plenty more in store next month.

Forever Green Just a Note

Pretty Peacock is such a lovely color and it’s perfect for this card.  I stamped the leaves and sentiment onto a single panel.  Then I die cut leaves in card stock and vellum.  The leaves are tied together with silver cording and the entire panel is placed atop and embossed  panel for Pretty Peacock card stock.  Sweet.  Simple.  Elegant.  Just my style!

Here’s a closer look at the beautiful DistINKtive stamp.

A closer look.

Isn’t that imagery gorgeous?!  I think so too!


  • Stamp sets: Forever Fern (leaves) – Music From My Heart  (sentiment)
  • Card Stock: Thick Very Vanilla – Very Vanilla – Pretty Peacock
  • Die: Forever Flourishing
  • Ink: Pretty Peacock
  • Embellishments: Silver Cord (Leftovers from a Paper Pumpkin kit.  Nothing goes to waste in my craft room.)
  • Envelope: Very Vanilla medium

By adding the trim piece, you can create a die cut that can be added to card as I have done with this card.
