I made today’s card using products from the Peony Garden Suite: Prized Peony Bundle (Prized Peony stamp set and Peony Dies,) Dainty Diamonds 3D Embossing Folder, Peony Garden Designer Series Paper, and Gray Granite 1/4″ Shimmer Ribbon. I wanted the flower to pop, so I made it in Melon Mambo instead of the Petal Pink in the paper. And I colored 3 pearls with a Dark Black Stampin’ Blends Marker to scatter around the flower.

Here’s what I did:

Cut and scored with my paper trimmer:

  • Basic Black card stock (CS) cut to 4-1/4″ x 11″, then scored in half at 5-1/2″
  • Peony Garden Designer Series Paper (DSP) layer cut to 4-1/8″ x 5-3/8″
  • Basic Black CS layer cut to 3-5/8″ x 4-7/8″
  • Gray Granite CS layer cut to 3-1/2″ x 4-3/4″
  • Whisper White CS layer cut to 4-1/8″ x 1-3/8″
  • DSP strip cut to 4″ x 1/2″
  • Whisper White CS cut to 4″ x 5-1/4″ for the inside of the card base

Stamped with the Prized Peony stamp set:

  • large floral image in Memento ink onto a scrap of Gray Granite CS
  • sentiment in Memento ink onto the Whisper White CS layer
  • large floral image in Gray Granite ink, stamped off twice, onto the 4″ x 5-1/4″ Whisper White CS (I wanted it to be very light, like a watermark, so I can write over it.)

Cut using the Peony Dies:

  • bottom of sentiment strip with scalloped die
  • stamped floral image
  • 4 peony layers from a scrap of Melon Mambo CS
  • flower center from a scrap of Basic Black CS

Embossed using the Dainty Diamonds Embossing Folder:

Colored using Stampin’ Blends Markers:

  • die cut floral image in Gray Granite and Melon Mambo
  • 3 pearls in Dark Basic Black

Assembled the card:

  • burnished the fold in the card base with a Bone Folder
  • DSP layer glued onto the front of the card base
  • embossed Gray Granite CS layer glued onto the Basic Black CS layer
  • Basic Black CS layer glued onto the DSP layer
  • die cut floral image glued onto the Gray Granite CS layer
  • four peony pieces assembled and glued together
  • flower center stuck down into the middle of the flower and glued in place
  • peony glued over the large flower of the stamped image
  • ribbon adhered along the top of the sentiment strip with Tear & Tape and wrapped around to the back
  • sentiment strip glued over the other layers
  • 3 black pearls applied onto the Gray Granite CS layer using the pointy end of my Take Your Pick tool
  • DSP strip glued onto the bottom of the 4″ x 5-1/4″ Whisper White CS
