Stampin’ Up! Floral Essence Beautiful Day Card

Good Friday Morning! Today’s card uses the beautiful Stampin’ Up! Floral Essence photopolymer stamp set to make a special card for someone special. I paired it with the Perennial Essence Designer Series Paper or DSP for a rich, elegant look. You can find the supplies used to create this card at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.

I started by cutting a panel of the beautiful Perennial Essence DSP and adhering it to a Whisper White mat before attaching it to a Pretty Peacock Card Base. I took a piece of Whisper White and ran it through the stitched Lace dies, first the large panel, and then the smaller trim dies on either side so that I ended up with a faux lace ribbon that I attached to the DSP.

I then die cut a Blackberry Bliss frame using the largest square from the Stitched Shapes dies and the third smallest Layering Squares die. I took a piece of vellum cardstock and stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up Floral Essence photopolymer stamp set in Pretty Peacock. I waited for it to dry and then attached the vellum to the back of the frame and attached the frame to the card with mini dimensionals. The vellum is nice because you can kind of see the DSP behind it.

I then stamped two of the large solid flowers in Flirty Flamingo on Whisper White. I fussy cut them and turned the bottom one upside down before attaching it to the top one with multipurpose liquid glue. This makes the flower larger and I’m surprised at how good it looks. I stamped the coordinating center in Blackberry Bliss on Whisper White and adhered it to the flower center.

I used the leaf punch and punched two leaf clusters from Old Olive cardstock and two leaf clusters from Old Olive vellum cardstock. I arranged the leaves behind the flower with three strips of Very Vanilla scalloped lace trim and adhered it to the card. I finished off the flower with some Wink of Stella to add some sparkle.

I decorated the inside of the card by adding a Blackberry Bliss mat to a Whisper White panel and adhering it to the card. I added another leaf branch cut from Old Olive vellum and a Flirty Flamingo stamped and fussy cut small flower with a Blackberry Bliss center.

The Stampin’ Up! Perennial Essence DSP has beautiful impressionist flowers and every card made with it looks like it belongs in a museum. Thanks for stopping by and have a great weekend!

Stampin’ Up! Stitched All Around Special Day Card

Good Morning! Today’s card is a very simple but very elegant special day card using the Stampin’ Up! Stitched All Around stamp set and Stitched Labels dies. Coupled with the Country Floral embossing folder, the card comes together quickly and is great for any special occasion. You can find the supplies used to create this card at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.

I ran a piece of Seaside Spray cardstock through the Country Floral embossing folder and adhered it to a white mat before attaching it to a Seaside Spray card base with multipurpose liquid glue.

I took a piece of Thick Whisper white and embossed the Enjoy Your Special Day sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Stitched All Around cling stamp set in silver. I cut it out using the fancy large label from the Stitched Labels die. I made a large bow from the Polka Dot Tulle ribbon and attached it to the bottom of the label with a glue dot and attached the label to the card front with dimensionals. I finished off the card front with three faux pearls.

I decorated the inside of the card by stamping the border from the Stampin’ Up! Stitched All Around stamp set in Seaside Spray on the bottom of a Whisper White panel and attaching it to the inside of the card.

That’s it! This card is embarrassingly simple, but it lets the gorgeous Stampin’ Up! elements do all the talking. The beautiful elegance of the Country floral embossing folder paired with the silver embossed lettering and intricate stitches and curves on the label will make any card special. Thanks for visiting and have a great weekend!
