Forever Fern, Peaceful Moments, Thinking of You Card, 2020 Stampin Up! Catalog

I was checking my list of cards I have in my stash and I do not have very many "Thinking of You" cards. So here's today's card.

The base of the card is a folded half-sheet of Whisper White card stock. 

The textured pieces was done using the "Old World" embossing folder. I cut that piece 4" x 5-1/4" but after it was textured I needed to trim the short side so it measured 3-7/8" x 5-1/4".  I was pretty sure I cut it right before the embossing. So to be sure, cut yours at 4" x 5-1/4" and if after embossing the sides aren't even all the way around when set on top of the card base, you will need to trim it up.  But if I measured wrong that disregard the rambling above!!! LOL

I used the 4th smallest "Stitched Rectangle" for the focal piece. It's the rectangle from the group of 8 in the pack. That piece measures 2-1/2" x 3-1/4".  I stamped the leaf bunch from the "Forever Fern" set using Old Olive ink. This image was stamped twice. You can see the angle of the images by looking at the stems. It was kind of a corner to corner stamping. And the image was inked up both times.

The image was also inked up using Night of Navy ink on a piece of Whisper White card stock. I used the die to cut it out. After cutting it, I added it to the top of the rectangle piece using Dimensionals.  I tied a double bow using some linen and I glued it to the Night of Navy stem. I set this aside while I worked on more elements of the card.

I taped the textured piece t the card base.

Then I stamped the words from the "Peaceful Moments" set using Night of Navy ink on a piece of Whisper White card stock.  I took the smallest stitched rectangle and die cut the words out.

The Night of Navy triangle is actually a rectangle piece of scrap that I added some tape to and worked on onto the focal piece so it looks like a rectangle. 

Next Dimensionals were added to the back of the focal piece and the word piece and they were set in place on the front of the card.  And that was it. 

This was a very simple and quick card to make. It will also be a great birthday, sympathy, get well or Mother's Day card.  This is a very versatile set, that is why I bought it.

Thank you SO much for taking the time to stop by and have a look today,
