Artfully Composed Meets Forever Fern - Stamp N Hop Blog Hop

 Hi Everyone,

Today I am hopping with the Stamp N Hop group and if you have joined me from the lovely Liz Yuille then welcome.  Our theme is 'Mixing Old and New'. I have used the beautiful new Artfully Composed designer series paper and the gorgeous Brass Butterflies and mixed it with an old favourite stamp set Forever Fern and the Painted Label dies. Let me show you what I did:


1 piece of thick basic white card stock 5 7/8" x 8 1/4"
1 piece of evening evergreen card 3 7/8" x 5 5/8" and a scrap for the die cut
1 piece of dsp 3 5/8" x 5 3/8"
Scrap of soft succulent card
Layering circle dies
Evening evergreen ink
Forever Fern stamp set
Stampin' Cut & Emboss Machine
Painted Label dies
Simply Scored
Bone Folder
Multipurpose adhesive
Brass Butterflies


On the long side score the thick white card at 4 1/8" and fold and burnish to make the card base.

Adhere the dsp to the evening evergreen mat and then add them to the card front.

Die cut the swirly circle from the Painted Label dies in evening evergreen and a 2" circle from the circle dies in soft succulent (or use a punch if you have one).

Stamp the sentiment on the circle and add to the evergreen swirl shape and decorate with the brass butterflies. Add to the card front using dimensionals.

Stamp another sentiment on the inside of the card and add some leaves down the right hand side, see picture.

A quick and easy card using old and new products, why don't you give it a try and see what you come up with.
