Forever Greenery Three Block Pop-Up Card – Video Tutorial

Welcome to my Corner of the World

Today I have a really lovely fun fold – it is so impressive but surprisingly easy to make, I have made a video tutorial to help you make one as well.

Oh my gosh – Magenta Madness certainly packs some WOW factor!  I have to say that I was a bit doubtful of using all this color for my card today, don’t get me wrong – I love the color  – but have paired it with Smoky Slate to give a bit of  neutral support.

The Forever Fern Stamp Set has been so very popular since its debut at the beginning of June, it is part of the Forever Greenery Suite which invokes thoughts of lush greens – but I have taken the liberty of using Magenta Madness – ‘cos not all leaves have to be green, do they?
