Story of Elegance

Hello and Happy Friday!

Have you ever waited until the last minute to get a card in the mail?  Well count me in that number.  I was sitting here thinking about upcoming events that I wanted to celebrate with a card and immediately realized I have to get an anniversary card in the mail today.  Yikes!  Well I only panicked for the two minutes it took me to decide upon the new Floral Essence stamp set.  The colors were easy, I just used the wedding colors.  I had this card ready for the mail in no time.

As always, I hope that today’s card will inspire you to order a few items and create your own special kindness to share.

Here’s the card I made.

Anniversary card made with Stampin' Up! products

Floral Essence Anniversary

Since this is an Anniversary card, I needed to add another sentiment set, so I reached for the  Always in My Heart stamp set.  I love the mixed fonts in the sentiment I chose.

Sentiment from Always In My Heart

Here’s are steps I used to create this card:

1. Cut a 4 1/8″ x 5 3/8″ panel of Blackberry Bliss card stock and adhere to a card base made with Thick Basic Black card stock.

2.  Cut a 4″ x 5 1/4″ panel of Basic White card stock.

3. Stamp the Basic White panel with the large floral stamp from the Floral Essence stamp set using Blackberry Bliss and Rococo Rose inks.

4.  Die cut the bottom of the stamped panel using a die from the Ornate Borders die set.

5.  Add a strip of Blackberry Bliss striped ribbon under the stamped flowers and adhere the panel to the Blackberry Bliss panel.

6.  Stamp the sentiment on a piece of Basic White card stock using Blackberry Bliss ink and die cut using Stitched Rectangle die.

7.  Add the sentiment on top of the ribbon and finish with three Basic Pearls.
