ID: MC Feb/15 - Easel Fern - With Sympathy - Life Is Not card
size: 5"w  x 7"h (card closed)

Created: February 10, 2015

I've been meaning to eCut this fern set since I saw it, but one thing after another came before it... Finally!!

I'm a guest designer on the Die Cut Divas challenge blog in conjunction with Quietfire Design.

I'm also using one of the 10 tiny sentiment stamps for the background and a quote stamp from Quietfire Design  

("10 Tiny Sentiment" 10 pce set); ("Life is Not Measured..."); eCut ("Fern")


I scored and folded my white easel card. Adhered a piece of brown textured cardstock to the front.

Die cut the heat bordered square (Spellbinders "Labels 42") from white cardstock and repeatedly stamped the tiny sympathy sentiment using Distress "Pumice Stone". Adhered to card front.

eCut the fern and word from white cardstock and painted with Distress Acrylic daubers in various greens and a touch of yellow. Used a small balled stylus to add vein lines. Die cut the daisies (Memory Box) painted with yellow, assembled and adhered to front. Hit the "fern" word with Versamark and clear embossed prior adhering to the shadow layer, then on to card.

On the floor, I adhered another piece of the brown cardstock, edge to edge. The adhered a piece of green satin ribbon.

Stamped the quote onto white cardstock, using Versafine Black Onyx and clear embossed. Used the Spellbinders Label 42 die set to cut both ends, then hand cut between to cut a rectangular shape rather than the square shape... adhered to floor.

Adhered a smaller fern as a stopper. Final touch added the pearl flourishes.
