Forever Fern Bundle for PP492

I've been delighting in my pre-order purchase of the Forever Greenery suite and when you open up the 2020-21 Catalogue, you'll know why. The Forever Fern bundle could well turn out to be my favourite ever bundle!

I've had an explore of the suite using the lush greens of the DSP, which I'll share with you another day, but today I'm sharing my play around with different colours. Here in New Zealand, autumn is slipping into winter. As I was driving home from town, I saw some trees still with their autumn coats on and the idea for this card was born.

For further inspiration, I used LeAnne's fabulous sketch at The Paper Players.

The card front panels from the Forever Gold Laser Cut Specialty paper make a statement all by themselves, but really shine out when backed in a darker colour.

Both the Greenery embossing folders are lovely but I really like the foliage look of this one. It adds a nice touch of detail in the background.

I used a baby wipe and re-inkers to dab colour onto some shimmery card stock to create the variegated foliage and the second one is cut Cherry Cobbler.

The final touch was a double bow using the gold twine from the Forever Greenery Trim Combo. I frayed the ends for a bit of extra drama. 😀

Update: Delighted to be chosen A Cut Above at The Paper Players.
