Although last week I said Arrange A Wreath was my favorite Stampin’ Up!® bundle I did mention that I had a lot of favorites from this catalog. The Suite called Forever Greenery is also one of my favorites. I love the all the different leaf stamps in Forever Fern, the matching dies called Forever Flourishing and the Forever Greenery Designer Series Paper is gorgeous! The colors used in this suite are beautiful together and so elegant.
I started this card by just stamping and cutting out a bunch of the leaf images in different greens. I think most of our greens go really well with each other. I arranged them on a piece of Whisper White cardstock. I thought they needed a little burst of color added to them so I stamped the berries in Mango Melody. I used a sentiment from the stamp set called Peaceful Moments and cut it out using a die from the set called Tasteful Labels.
I still thought the card needed something more so I added another leaf and a berry to the other side. The card still looked very white so I added some Soft Seafoam splatters to the background. This is how I do so many of my cards. I get an idea in my head and it seems to be missing something so I add a little here and a little there until I like it. I am not very artistic so sometimes it takes me a while to figure it out (and sometimes it ends up in the trash more often than I like to admit). That is the great thing about stamping. Anyone can do it! Let me tell you, the only reason I passed art class was because I would ask the teacher for help and she would end up doing my whole project. How could she fail herself?
