Before we get to making this quick and easy friendship card, let’s talk bundles.  You have 34 bundles to choose from in the new Stampin’ Up! Annual Catalog!  I know there’s one in there for everyone.  As for me I found several and will be sharing them with you over the coming weeks.  If you need a copy of the current catalog you can request one here.  If you’d like to browse it online while you’re waiting for the mailman to deliver your copy, you can look at it here.

For today’s card I used a card base I seem to be gravitating to a lot right now – Sahara Sand.  I just find it a soothing base especially when layering on bold or bright colors (have you seen the new In Colors – ah-mazing!).

Pay close attention to the directions for making the card stock borders for the designer series paper – I only used 1″ by 5 1/2″ of cardstock to get the look!

Let me know what you think of this card!  Leave a comment and I will draw a winner to receive some retired (new, never used) swap from my swap bin.



Sahara Sand – 11″ by 4 1/4″ score at 5 1/2″

Shaded Spruce – 5 1/2″ by 1″ and scrap for fern dies

Forever Fern Designer Series Paper – 5 1/2″ by 2″

Whisper White – scrap for label die


  1. Cut the Shaded Spruce in half along the 5 1/2″ side – attach each half to the 5 1/2″ side of the Forever Fern paper leaving about 3/8″ showing on each side
  2. Use your die cutting machine to make the ferns and label
  3. Stamp the greeting using Shaded Spruce ink on the label
  4. Add dimensionals to the back of the label
  5. Add glue dots to the back of the ferns
  6. Attach the ferns and label to the center right side of the paper layer making sure it will fit on the card base and not hangover
  7. Attach all the paper layer to the card using Stampin’ Seal
