Ornate Garden Suite - Mixing it Up!

The card I am showing you today is made using many of the products found in the Ornate Garden Suite collection - with a twist. None of the colors used today are part of the suite! I wanted to show how you can take products from the suite to create something fabulous outside of the color scheme featured with the suite.

My Stampin' Up! Color Fusion for today is Gorgeous Grape, Soft Sea Foam (inside of card - peaks through the beautiful floral border at the bottom!) and Silver foil sheets as an accent.

I used the following cuts of cardstock:

  • Gorgeous Grape: 11" x 4¼", scored at 5½"

  • Soft Sea Foam: 4⅛" x 5½"

  • Whisper White: 1¼" x 4⅜"

I also used the following stamps, dies and embossing folder:

  • Ornate Thanks: “THANK YOU” sentiment stamp

  • Ornate Borders: large floral border die

  • Ornate Borders: small scalloped border die

  • Ornate Layers: 3⅝" x 2" decorative frame die

  • Ornate Style: mini flower cluster stamp (used inside card)

  • Ornate Floral embossing folder


  1. Trim a piece of Gorgeous Grape cardstock to 11" x 4¼" and score at 5½"

  2. Use your bone folder to get a nice crisp fold in your card base

  3. Trim a piece of Soft Sea Foam cardstock to 4⅛" x 5½" (this will go inside your card base so it "peeks" through - more on this later!)

  4. Trim a piece of Whisper White cardstock to 1¼" x 4⅜"

  5. Using the ornate layers 3⅝" x 2" decorative frame die, cut out using Silver Foil sheets (I was able to find a piece in my scraps perfect for this - make sure you check yours!)

  6. Using the large floral border die from the Ornate Borders die set, trim the bottom edge of your Gorgeous Grape card base in your Big Shot (or equivalent)

  7. Place the top, front of your Gorgeous Grape card base inside the Ornate Floral embossing folder (sideways so you are not embossing your decorative floral edge) and run through your Big Shot (or equivalent)

  8. Using the small scalloped border from the Ornate Borders die set, cut both long edges of your Whisper White cardstock using your Big Shot (or equivalent)

  9. Apply Stampin' Seal to the back of your Soft Sea Foam cardstock and adhere down inside the center of your Gorgeous Grape card base so it peeks through the beautiful large floral border on your card front

  10. Apply Stampin' Seal to the back of your Silver Foil decorative frame and adhere down approximately 1" from the top of your card base

  11. Stamp the “THANK YOU” sentiment In Gorgeous Grape ink, centered, on your die cut scalloped border Whisper White cardstock

  12. In Gorgeous Grape ink stamp the mini flower cluster stamp from the Ornate Style stamp set in the top left and right corners inside your card on your Soft Sea Foam cardstock

  13. Apply Stampin' Dimensionals to the back of your Whisper White cardstock adhere down, centered, over your Silver Foil decorative frame (see image for further details)

  14. Take two small basic rhinestones and adhere one on either side of your "THANK YOU" sentiment

  15. To finish off your card, use your Wink of Stella pen and lightly color all the raised flowers on your Gorgeous Grape card front to add a little shine
