Framed Florets Stamp Set

Here’s the card I made:

Framed Florets Thank You

The simplicity of this card does it for me and I just love a mixed font sentiment.  This sweet card comes together in a flash.

A Closer Look


Elegance Made Easy

Following are the quick steps to recreate this card.

First, make your cuts:

  • Basic Black card stock  – 4 1/8″ x 5 3/8″
  • Basic White card stock – 4″ x 5 1/4″
  • Die cuts:
    • None
  • Punches:
    • None

Add the Basic Black panel to the front of an A2 card base made with Thick Basic White card stock.  Note:  An A2 card base is made by scoring a 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″ piece of card stock scored and folded at 4 1/4″.

Stamp the large flower and sentiment onto the Basic White panel with Tuxedo Black Memento ink and color using Stampin’ Blends.  I used Real Red and Old Olive.  Adhere  to the card front as shown.

Add Basic Rhinestone Jewels to the centers of the flowers and next to the sentiment.

For the inside of the card, I stamped and colored the floral image to coordinate.

To finish, stamp and color a flower on the envelope front and flap, and your simply elegant Thank You card is complete!
