For today’s card, I am using the Floral Romance Suite found in the Occasions catalog on pages 10-11. I “stepped it up” a little. I will explain that later.
What is a “Suite” in the world of Stampin’ Up!?
A Suite is a group of products designed to coordinate perfectly together. We are accustom to seeing a stamp set with matching framelits dies and even designer series paper (DSP). A suite includes so much more. As can be seen in the catalog, the suite also includes card stock that coordinates with the Specialty DSP. Plus, an embossing folder, gold adhesive backed seals, Frosted Flower embellishments and 5/8″ variegated ribbon are included to complete this suite. Using the Floral Romance Suite, I had everything I needed to make this card. All I added was ink and adhesives.
Measurements and Details:
Stamps: Wonderful Romance Bundle
Ink: Fresh Fig
Cutting and scoring:
Mossy Meadow – 8 1/2″ x 5 1/2″, score and fold at 4 1/4″, Scraps.
Sahara Sand – 5 1/2″ x 4 1/4″, and 2 1/2″ x 3″
Petal Pink – 2 1/2″ x 3″
Pear Pizzazz – 1 3/4″ x 5″
Floral Printed Vellum DSP – 2 1/2″ x 5 1/2″
To adhere the vellum DSP, I applied Tear and Tape to the two long areas of Sahara Sand after die cutting. This does not show through, unless of course you hunt for it.
I stepped this card up by die cutting the Pear Pizzazz with the lattice die, lining it up over the leaves only. Next I fussy cut the leaves apart from the lattice work and glued the leaves over the Sahara Sand leaves on the large lattice piece. I like the subtle effect this has on the card.
After stamping the sentiment on the small Sahara Sand piece and cutting it with the oval framelit, I fussy cut the detailed edge off of the oval. I added the tiny leaves to top left area of the Petal Pink oval then adhered the fussy cut oval on top. I added some larger die cut leaves behind the oval and the Frosted Flower embellishments on the front to complete this focal point.
