Story of Elegance


I’m so happy to share another card with you today.   I always have a reason to say Thank You to someone, so I make lots of cards for that purpose.  One thing that is more fun than making a thank you card, is making one with materials that I obtained free!  Today, I’m using the Paper Blooms Designer Series Paper that I received free with a recent $50 purchase.  Check out the bottom of this post for information on how you can earn free products during SaleABration too!

I hope that today’s card will inspire you to grab a few products and create something beautiful.

Here’s the card I made.

Thank You card made with Stampin' Up! products

Paper Blooms Thanks

The beautiful colors in this paper just speak to me.  Creating this card is so simple because the paper does all the work.

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

1. Cut a 4 1/8″ x 5 3/8″ panel of Rococo Rose card stock.

2. Cut a 4″ x 5 1/4″ panel of Paper Blooms Designer Series Paper.  Adhere to the Rococo Rose panel and then to a card base made with Thick Basic White card stock.

3. Cut a second panel of Rococo Rose card stock to 2 3/4″ x 4″.

4.  Cut a 2 5/8″ x 3 7/8″ panel of Paper Blooms DSP.  Wrap a strip of Silver Metallic Edge ribbon across the middle of the panel and  adhere to the second Rococo Rose panel.    Center the assembled panel onto the card base.

5.  Create the sentiment panel using the dies from the Potted Succulents die set.  Die cut the two pieces using Basic White card stock.  Stamp the sentiment from the Simply Succulents stamp set in Night of Navy Ink.  Use Stampin’ Dimensionals to adhere the sentiment panel to the center of the ribbon.

6.  I used the Leaf Punch to cut 3 stems in Rococo Rose, Night of Navy and Seaside Spray, and the Small Bloom Punch to cut a flower in Rocco Rose card stock.

7. Arrange the leaves, flower and silver thread on the corner of the sentiment panel and add a blue gem from the Holiday Gems pack to the center of the flower.
