Forever Fern - Creative Colour Challenge #35 - Stampin' Birds Challenge

 Hi Everyone,

For the month of May, Stampin' Birds are challenging each other to try and keep our crafty mojo on its collective toes. We have committed to doing three challenges per week and the first one is our lovely Victoria's Creative Colour Challenge #34 - Shaded Spruce, Crumb Cake and Mint Macaron - not colours I would have put together but not as challenging as it could have been hahahaha!!

I've made a card using the Forever Fern stamp set and the Forever Flourishing dies, I hope that you like it. Let me show you how I made it.


1 piece of crumb cake card stock 5 7/8" x 8 1/4"
2 pieces of basic white card stock 3 7/8" x 5 5/8"
1 piece of shaded spruce card stock 1" x 5 5/8"
Scraps of mint macaron and shaded spruce for the die cuts
Gilded Gems
Brushed Brass Butterflies
Crumb Cake ink
Shaded Spruce ink
Mint Macaron ink
Forever Fern stamp set
Forever Flourishing dies
Stampin' Cut & Emboss Machine
Double Oval punch
Multipurpose adhesive
Bone Folder


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

Randomly stamp leaves across the centre of one piece of basic white making sure that all the stems meet in a line across that can be covered by the strip of shaded spruce.  

Adhere the strip of shaded spruce across this stamped piece and trim off any excess.  Adhere this to the card front.

Die cut an assortment of leaves using shaded spruce and mint macaron card.

Stamp a sentiment and then punch out with the larger oval.  Tuck the leaves on the back of this oval using dimensionals and then add some glue and adhere to the centre of the strip on the card front.

Stamp some leaves on the remaining piece of basic white and adhere to the inside of the card.

Add some gilded gems and brass butterflies to the card front and the card is complete.

I do hope that you like my card. Why don't you give one of Victoria's challenges a go too? Her Creative Challenge Blog Page is
