Stampin’ Up! Ornate Style Friend Card

Good morning – I hope you’re having a great weekend! Today I am sharing a card with the Stampin’ Up! Ornate Style stamp set with the Ornate Garden specialty designer series paper. They are both on the retiring list, but have been among my favorites. You can find the supplies I used at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.

I adhered a panel of Ornate Style specialty designer series paper to an Old Olive mat and wrapped it with Old Olive ribbon and made a bow on the side. Then I adhered it to the front of a Bumblebee card base with dimensionals.

I stamped the flower from the Stampin’ Up! Ornate Style cling stamp set in Early Espresso ink on a Basic White panel and colored it with Old Olive and Mango Melody Stampin’ Blends. I cut the gorgeous frame from the Ornate Layers dies using Terracotta Tile card stock and adhered the flower on top. I adhered it to the card front with dimensionals and added a Terracotta Tile butterfly gem to the flower. I trimmed the bow.

I cut the friend sentiment with the Well Said dies from Mossy Meadow card stock after adhering an adhesive sheet to the back. I peeled off the backing and adhered the word to the card front – don’t forget the dot for the little i!

For the inside of the card, I stamped the flower from the Stampin’ Up! Ornate Style stamp set in Early Espresso ink in the corner of a Basic White panel and colored it with the Mango Melody and Old Olive Stampin’ Blends. I trimmed the bottom of the panel with a strip of Ornate Garden DSP and adhered the panel to the inside of the card.

The Stampin’ Up! Ornate Style stamp set is one of my many favorites from the current retiring catalog. I remember that the Ornate Garden Suite was an early release and I was awed by everything in the suite! Some of the products in the suite will be returning such as the beautiful Ornate Layers dies that I used here, but the beautiful Ornate Garden DSP will be retiring. So Sad…

But join me for a Facebook Live this afternoon for a sneak peek of something new! I’m planning to go live on my Facebook Page at 1:00 ET to make a card with the awesome new Pansy Patch bundle. Look forward to seeing you then!
