Your Kindness is So Appreciated - Flowering Blooms

Today's card is another simple design that could be repurposed for so many sentiments. It comes together pretty quick in a pinch too!

My Stampin' Up! Color Fusion for today is Shaded Spruce (I have a renewed interest in this color now!), Mint Macaron and Whisper White - with a hint of gold foil from the designer series paper and gold embossing for the flower.

I used the following cuts of cardstock:

  • Shaded Spruce: 8½" x 5½", scored at 4¼"

  • Whisper White: 4⅛" x 5⅜"

  • Whisper White: 4¼" x ½"

  • Mint Macaron/Gold Foil Ornate Garden Designer Series Paper: 4⅛" x 2"

I also used the following stamps and/or dies:

  • Flowering Blooms stamp set: "Your kindness is so appreciated" sentiment

  • Flowering Blooms stamp set: large floral

  • Flowering Dies: large floral (to match the stamp)


  1. Trim a piece of Shaded Spruce cardstock to 8½" x 5½" and score at 4¼"

  2. Use your bone folder to get a nice crisp fold in your card base so it will lie flat

  3. Trim a piece of Whisper White cardstock to 4⅛" x 5⅜"

  4. Trim a piece of the Mint Macaron and Gold Ornate Garden designer series paper to 4⅛" x 2"

  5. Cut a piece of Whisper White cardstock to 4¼" x ½" (remember to check your scraps!)

  6. Take your 4⅛" x 5⅜" Whisper White cardstock and insert into your Hammered Metal embossing folder and run through your Big Shot (or equivalent)

  7. Using the large floral image from your Flowering Blooms stamp set, cover in Versamark ink and stamp onto a piece of Vellum

  8. Cover with gold embossing powder and heat set with your heat tool

  9. Using the matching dye for the flower, die cut using your Big Shop (or equivalent)

  10. Stamp the “your kindness is so appreciated” sentiment in Shaded Spruce on your 4¼" x ½" piece of Whisper White cardstock

  11. Cut a piece of the Mint Macaron ribbon from the Basketweave and Metallic ribbon combo pack to approximately 6 inches

  12. Using your Banner Pick a Punch, insert your sentiment strip on either side and punch

  13. Apply Stampin' Seal to the back of your designer series paper and apply down to the bottom of your embossed Whisper White cardstock (see image)

  14. Take your Mint Macaron ribbon and apply down over the seam from your designer series paper to your embossed Whisper White, using Stampin' Seal on the back to adhere

  15. Apply Stampin' Seal to the back of your embossed Whisper White cardstock and adhere down, centered, over your Shaded Spruce card base

  16. Using your fine tip glue pen, apply a small amount of adhesive on the back of your die cut flower and adhere down over your embossed Whisper White to the left of the card base with your stem going slightly over your Mint Macaron ribbon

  17. Apply 3-4 Stampin' Dimensional’s on the back of your sentiment strip and apply down, centered, half over your Mint Macaron ribbon and a half over your designer series paper

  18. As a finishing touch, use 3-4 of the gold colored metallic pearls to help accent your gold embossed flower
