The beautiful blue bouquet on today’s card was made using the Beautiful Bouquet Bundle (Beautiful Bouquet stamp set and Bouquet Bunch Framelits Dies.) Using Stampin’ Dimensionals and Pearl Basic Jewels, and wrapping the flower stems with ribbon can give some thickness to the card. To mail it, simply lay a 4-1/4″ x 5-1/2″ piece of card stock over the front of the card before inserting it into the envelope. You can also pay more to have the envelope hand cancelled, instead of run through the automated postal machines.

  • Old Olive CS cut to 4-1/8″ x 5-3/8″
  • Very Vanilla CS 4″ x 5-1/4″ (2 pieces: one layer for the front and one piece for the inside of the card)

Stamped with the Beautiful Bouquet stamp set:

  • sentiments in Island Indigo ink onto the Very Vanilla CS layer
  • flowers in Pool Party ink onto a scrap of Very Vanilla CS

Die cut using the Bouquet Bunch Framelits Dies:

  • stamped flowers
  • small flowers from a scrap of Island Indigo CS
  • stems from a scrap of Old Olive CS

Assembled the card:

  • burnished the fold in the card base with a Bone Folder
  • wrapped Pool Party 3/8″ Shimmer Ribbon around the die cut stems and adhered to the Very Vanilla CS layer with Fast Fuse
  • Pearls applied to the centers of the Pool Party flowers
  • Pool Party and Island Indigo flowers arranged and adhered to the Very Vanilla CS layer with Mini Dimensionals and glue, working from the outside edges of the bouquet to the stems, and being sure to cover the top of the stems
  • Very Vanilla CS layer glued onto the Old Olive CS layer
  • Old Olive CS layer glued onto the front of the card base
