Peony Garden 'Your Sweet Friendship' Card
The card I am featuring today is using products from my (current) favorite Stampin' Up! suite - the Peony Garden Suite Collection. It is a very simple card to make but I love the end result!
A quick look at the suite...absolutely beautiful!
The colors for the card I am showing today are soft and feminine in Basic Gray, Petal Pink and Silver (foil).
I used the following cuts of cardstock:
Basic Gray (card base): 8½” x 5½”, scored at 4¼”
Petal Pink: 4¼” x 5½”
Large Peony Basic Gray and Whisper White Peony Garden Designer Series Paper: 3¼" x 4⅝" (will be die cut with stitched square so you can wait and just die cut that if you prefer)
Cut your Basic Gray cardstock to 8½” x 5½” using your paper trimmer and score at 4¼” (you can do this using your Stampin' Up! paper trimmer!)
Fold the card base and crease the fold using your bone folder
Get our your Stitched Rectangle dies and using the 3¾" x 5⅛" size, die cut your Petal Pink cardstock as a mat
Find the large Peony Whisper White and Basic Gray paper from the Peony Garden Designer Series Paper, then cut with 3" x 4⅜" Stitched Rectangle die (be sure to get a good peony centered and slightly high on the die cut piece so you can accent it!)
From the Prized Peony stamp set, stamp the "your sweet friendship refreshes the soul" sentiment onto a piece of Whisper White cardstock in Basic Gray ink
Using the Tailored tag punch, punch out the sentiment and an extra piece in silver (foil)
Add Stampin' Seal to the back of the Petal Pink mat and adhere, centered to your Basic Gray card base
Snip a 4" piece of Gray Granite Shimmer ribbon and wrap around the die cut piece of designer series paper, adhering approximately ½" on either side to the back
Using your Petal Pink Stampin' Blends, color in the peony flower
Add Stampin' Seal to the back of the designer series paper and adhere it over the Petal Pink mat, centered
Apply Stampin' Seal to the back of the stamped, punched sentiment and adhere to the silver foil punched tag as shown in image
Place a Stampin' Dimensional on the back of the sentiment tag, one each on the top and bottom
Apply the sentiment tag to your card centered over the Gray Granite Shimmer ribbon
To finish the card off, use your Take Your Pick tool to add a basic pearl to the left and right of the sentiment on the tag
This card took less then 10 minutes to make so it's great if you need a card quick and I believe you could change out the sentiment for many different occasions!
