Good Morning! The Stampin’ Up! Pansy Patch bundle is carrying over into the new 2022 – 2023 Annual catalog so YAY! With sweet sentiments, and wonderful dies, it’s definitely a favorite. But unfortunately the pretty Pansy Petals DSP is retiring, so I wanted to use it to make a simple card using scrappy strips of the pretty paper. You can find the supplies I used at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.
I selected 5 scrappy strips of the Pansy Petals designer series paper between 3″ – 5″ long and 1/2″ – 1″ wide. I cut a Thick Basic White card base and arranged the strips on the card base. Since some of the designs have a distinct up direction, I was careful to make sure the flowers weren’t upside down or sideways and the colors looked good next to each other. It’s relaxing to rearrange the strips to get the right combination.
Once I got the arrangement I liked, I took a picture with my phone and used it to recreate the design with adhesive, adhering each strip and for this design, I tried to keep them straight. I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Pansy Patch stamp set in Evening Evergreen on Basic White and cut it out with the Oval Double Punch. I cut a Soft Succulent panel with the scalloped Oval from the punch and adhered them together.
I folded a length of Bumble gingham ribbon and adhered it to the card front with glue dots and adhered the label on top with dimensionals. I finished the label with a small Fresh Freesia flower. There are so many different ways to add additional layers to this design and step it up for a fancier design. This DSP is so pretty that it can stand on it’s own and the design is simple enough for anyone to make!
For the inside of the card, I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Pansy Patch stamp set in Calypso Coral on the inside of the card. Since I used Thick Basic White for the card base, it doesn’t need an additional lining (of course if you make a boo boo, you can always cover it up with an additional layer – I was lucky today). I used the pansy dies to die cut a small pansy and leaf from the Pansy Petals DSP and adhered them to the top corner with liquid glue.
The Stampin’ Up! Pansy Patch bundle is so sweet and I’m so glad that it’s sticking around. And while the Pansy Petals DSP is retiring, the good news is that it is on sale, so get it before it’s gone!
