A Beautiful ANNIVERSARY Handmade Card with EASY COLORING TECHNIQUE | Forever Ferns Stamp Set - Stampin' Up!

 Sometimes I limit the products I use when making cards, while other times I let the creative juices flow and use any Stampin’ Up products I have. That is what I did for this card. I knew I wanted to use the products from my November 2020 Customer Appreciation Program (check them out here) to make this card, but then added a lot more (see the list of products below). I love the monochrome feeling and how the fun Coloring Technique created beautiful leaves for this card.

I hope you enjoy this handmade card tutorial and come back for more. I would love to see your finished creations that are inspired by this tutorial! You can tag me in any social media post using @creativechelsey | #creativechelsey or email me at

1- Stamp your choice of leaf from the Forever Fern Stamp Set. Start by inking the whole image with Gray Granite, then add just a little Rich Razzleberry ink to the edges with a sponge dauber. Repeat so you have 3 leaves. Cut out with coordinating dies.

2- Stamp your greeting from Many Mates Stamp Set in Memento Black ink. Use the small label from the Beautiful Boughs Dies and cut out.

3- Cut out from Whisper White cardstock the leaf swag die shape from the Forever Flourishing Dies. Repeat so you have two.

4- Add the In Good Taste Designer Series Paper to the front of the cardbase. Add the Plush Poinsettia Vellum in the center with glue dots under the pattern.

5- Add the three leaves to the card. One in the upper right hand corner, and two pointing down.

6- Adhere the leaf swags under the leaves so the leaves come up on each side of the stamped images.

7- On the back of the greeting add 14” of Gray Granite Ribbon in a faux bow. Add this to the center of the leaves with dimensionals.

8- Cut out six little flowers from the Well Written dies in Rich Razzleberry. Layer two on top of each other with a glue dot. Add these around the greeting. Place a small rhinestone in the center to cover up the hole.

All Done!
