At least 2 things you can do with ferns

My kid sis gave me a set of 12x12 designer PP with this one being my fav.  Beautiful, isn't it?  It reminds me so of the Pacific Northwest.  A while back I had run across a card made with fern stamps and markers (I think).  This paper immediately came to mind.  I wanted a little more interest so used a fern die and popped it up.  I like how it draws the eye back to the sentiment.

For the other card I kept circling back to one of the scraps, thinking it would be perfect for a sympathy card.  Just a simple stamped sentiment and matting was all it needed.
The Details:   mystery designer PP, card stock from old stash, Spectrum Noir for the berries, Fiskars All That Glitters "May the simple joys...", Hero Arts Everyday Sayings ("deepest sympathy"), Spellbinders die


I'm entering both cards in The Male Room Nature and card 1 in Penny Black and More Anything Goes, Simon Wednesday Anything Goes, Christmas Card Challenges Pop It Up, and All Sorts #231 Christmas Cheer.

  3. I live in the Pcific Northwest, and the gorgeous paper is very much a reminder of this area. I love how you "Christmasfied" the ferns by adding the red dots and popped up the die cut fern. Beautiful card! TYFS and joining in all the fun at Christmas Card Challenges #49.
