Stampin’ Up! Forever Fern Simply Stamped Friend Card

Tonight’s card is simply stamped friendship card using the Forever Fern stamp set along with a matching envelope. Enjoy!

The Paper

  • Whisper White Cardstock: 4 1/4″ x 11″, scored at 5 1/2″ and a 5 1/4 x 4″ panel
  • Whisper White Medium Envelope

The Creating

I started by stamping the sentiment in the center of the white panel in Tuxedo Black ink. I then covered it with a 1″ strip of computer paper securing it on the back with washi tape to prevent it from slipping. I also used the rest of the computer paper to cover the lower portion of the card (below the 1″ strip) if needed.

I used 4 different leaf images and 4 different shades of green. I inked each leaf in a color and stamped it on the top, rotated the card and repeated. I also stamped them on the envelope front and flap. I added the spatter image in 2nd Generation with the 4 colors on the card front and the envelope.

I removed the 1″ strip and adhered the decorated panel to the card front. I added 3 gems from the Flowers for Every Season Gems by placing a dot of Multipurpose Liquid Adhesive on the card where it was to go and adding the gem on top.

Thank you for stopping by. Please email me at with any questions or if I can be of assistance with your stamping creativity. I hope you will give this set a go…you won’t regret it!
