Hello from Forever Fern

Hello my friends and welcome to my blog

I'm back with my entry for this weeks Global Design Project #GDP250 and it's a fabulous sketch challenge - sadly I'm too late as entries closed earlier - what a numpty!!!

Oh well, I'm still going to share my card and would love to know what you think of it if you have time so please leave a comment below or over on Instagram.
To make the card, I used Seaside Spray card cut @ 15.8cm x 21cm and scored @ 10.5cm. I added a layer of Very Vanilla cut @ 9.5cm x 13.8cm to the front, embossed with the Brick & Mortar embossing folder. The next layer is vellum cut @ 10cm x 14.4cm. I stamped one of the stamps from the Forever Fern stamp set multiple times using Misty Moonlight ink before adding clear embossing powder and heat setting it. I do love heat embossing - it's like magic. I trimmed the vellum to 8.5cm x 13cm, keeping the long strip for the inside. Adding vellum to a project can be a little tricky but I use mini glue dots behind embossed areas so you can't see the glue. Taking a small piece of Seaside Spray I stamped the word Hello in versamark and then in Misty Moonlight, add clear embossing powder and just like that you've got coloured embossing. I find with cardstock you need to use versamark as the card is more pourous. I used one of the Forever Flourishing dies to die cut 3 identical very vanilla flourishs and added them to create a circle. I trimmed the sentiment down with snips to create a banner and added them with mini dimensionals. 3 clear epoxy droplets add the finishing touch.
For the inside I stamped the sentiment in Misty Moonlight and added the strip of velum to another piece of very vanilla cut @ 10.2cm x 14.5cm.
I'm giggle to myself for missing the deadline to join the challenge but hopefully lesson learned to be more organised!! I've had a busy week and do have a lot on my mind at the moment.  I even made a video that you can see now I've had time to edit it.
