Personailzed Masculine Notecards - Stampin' Up! Forever Fern

   I've been working on a set of personalized cards for a family member to use for the staff at her offices.  She wanted a masculine and a feminine design with the employees names so the Big Shot and Playful Alphabet dies have been getting a workout.  I have all the masculine ones finished and am part way through with the feminine ones which I hope to share tomorrow.  22 is a lot of cards!

  I really liked the crisp green and blue for the masculine card.  The Forever Greenery DSP was just the ticket and luckily I had enough of the striped pattern for all the cards I needed.  I layered a piece of the DSP onto a Whisper White thick card base to start this one.

  The name panel is a piece of Whisper White embossed with the Subtle embossing folder.  Then I backed it with a piece of Pretty Peacock.  I sure will be sorry when Pretty Peacock retires as I've used it a ton the last 2 years.  I used Pretty Peacock to cut out the letters as well.  

  I made things easy on myself and used the adhesive sheets to make each letter a sticker so I wouldn't have to mess with glue for 22 different names. If you do a lot of die cutting and want to make it easier to adhere little pieces (or big pieces, there's no size limit!) definitely check out the adhesive sheets.  All you do is peel off one side of the backing, press your cardstock to the sticky side and then die cut the cardstock as usual, then peel off the backing when you're ready to adhere.  I don't use it much when I'm making one-off cards but for multiple it sure makes the process less messy!

  The fern sprigs are stamped in Pretty Peacock and Just Jade and then the one in the background is just cut out of Soft Sea Foam cardstock to round out the sprig.  I layered them and then attached them to the side of the name with dimensionals and then added a braided linen trim knot to the stems.

  I hope to be back tomorrow to share the feminine version but I'm not making any promises.  On Friday we unexpectedly got a new puppy so things are a bit busy and out of sorts but in a good way so stamping business might not happen as it usually does!  

  Isn't he cute??  His name is Herk and Aggie loves him already!

  Thanks for looking!  Did you stamp today?

  1. Amanda, I had to comment. First, the masculine version of your card is beautiful. Can't wait to see the feminine version. What an undertaking, but it's great. Please know that although your card is beautiful, it doesn't compare to that adorable new addition to your family! He is the cutest!! Enjoy your week and your new little one.

  2. You know I have to first comment on the pup. Adorable! Hopefully will get to meet him at some point. Aggie has gotten so big. The card is beautiful. You have such patience and great design ideas. As usual, love your card.


Thanks for taking the time to comment!
