Bold but Feminine Thinking of You Card

Today's card is bold but still feminine using some of the new products from the upcoming Stampin' Up! catalog for 2020-2021 available June 3rd, 2020.

The colors used today are Blackberry Bliss, Just Jade (new!) and Bumblebee (new!)

I used the following cuts of cardstock:

  • Whisper White (thick) - card base: 8½" x 5½", scored at 4¼"

  • Blackberry Bliss (layer): 5¼" x 4"

  • Just Jade (layer): 5" x 3¾"

  • Whisper White (stamped floral images): 3½" x 3½"

  • Blackberry Bliss (sentiment): 3⅝" x 1"

  • Bumblebee (layer for sentiment): 4⅜" x 1"


  1. Using your paper trimmer, cut your card base using Whisper White (thick) cardstock at 8½" x 5½" and scored at 4¼"

  2. Cut your Blackberry Bliss layering piece at 5¼" x 4"

  3. Cut your Just Jade front layer at 5" x 3¾"

  4. Cut your Blackberry Bliss sentiment strip at 3⅝" x 1" (when using your punch later, some of the excess will be cut off)

  5. Cut your Bumblebee layer for your sentiment strip at 4⅜" x 1" (when using your punch later, some of the excess will be cut off)

  6. Using the largest circle die from the layering Circles die set, outline the outer circle on your 3½" x 3½" Whisper White cardstock in pencil

  7. Using Blackberry Bliss ink, choose 2-3 stamps floral stamps from the Lovely You stamp set and stamp them around the circle you just drew (see image below)

  8. Take the same large circle die and die cut a circle out of your Just Jade 5" x 3¾" cardstock, approximately ¾" from the top and centered horizonally

  9. Using your multipurpose glue, adhere the stamped Whisper White cardstock to the back of the Just Jade die cut circle so the stamped floral images show through the die cut circle

  10. Using Versamark ink, stamp the 'miles apart, but still in my heart' sentiment on your cut piece of Blackberry Bliss (3⅝" x 1")

  11. Cover the ink in white Stampin' Emboss powder and heat set using your heat tool

  12. Using the Lovely Labels punch, punch out both ends of your Blackberry Bliss (sentiment) and Bumblebee (layer for sentiment) to create the decorative label look

  13. Adhere your 5¼" x 4" piece of Blackberry Bliss, centered, to your Whisper White card base using Snail Adhesive

  14. Adhere your Blackberry Bliss sentiment strip centered on your Bumblebee layer

  15. Using foam adhesive strips, adhere the Just Jade cardstock to the Blackberry Bliss layer

  16. Cut a strip of Polka Dot White Tulle at 3¾" and adhere to the Just Jade using snail adhesive approximately ½" from the bottom - the strip should stretch. the width of the Just Jade cardstock piece

  17. Layer the stacked sentiment strips, centered over the tulle strip

  18. Using your fine tip glue pen, adhere a few of the Just Jade gems from the Flowers for Every Season gems (see images for ideas)

  19. As a finishing touch, use your Wink of Stella pen to lightly dust the stamped images with a little glitter!

I love the colors in this card, they make it bold while still allowing the card to appear soft and feminine.
