Get Creative Cardmaking : Tasteful Touches

Hi there, thanks for stopping by.  It's been a lovely few weeks, hot sun but now I am glad of some rain as the garden plants sure need it.  It's getting close to Genny heading off for her year abroad - there has been a lot to do and I think (haha) that we have finally got on top of what needs to be done, chasing funding, thanking Lincoln uni for their help as well as it's been a bit tricky in some cases as she starts in August where UK universities are September/October! Anyway, onwards....

It's time to get the supplies out and get creative.  Here is a lovely card for you with the instructions on how to create it below.  I hope you like it.


  • Cinnamon Cider cardstock: 8 1/2” x 5 ½”
  • Basic White cardstock x 2 : 4” x 2 ½”  /  3 ½” x 2 ½”    
  • 2 pieces of DSP trimmed to: ½” x 5 ½”          


  1. Fold the Cinnamon Cider 8 ½” x 5 ½” card stock in half and crease to create your card base.
  2. Using Versamark ink, stamp the Forever Fern leaf image randomly over your card front.
