A Nice and Easy Floral Essence Card

This is a wonderful sentiment to send to someone you care about to help them feel how special they are. And this card is very quick and easy to make. The Stampin’ Up! Designer Series Paper(DSP) is Perennial Essence and has several gorgeous floral images.

The Stampin’ Up! stamp set used for this card is Floral Essence.

Measurements: Very Vanilla 8 1/2 x 5 1/2 inch card base scored at 4 1/4 inches, Basic Black 5 1/4 x 4 inches, Perennial Essence DSP 5 3/8 x 3 7/8 inches, Petal Pink Perennial Essence Vellum Cardstock 3 x 1 3/4 inches, Very Vanilla 2 1/2 x 1 1/2 inches, and 7 inches of the 5/8 inch Organdy Striped Ribbon cut in half.

This is a Photopolymer clear stamp and you will need a Stampin’ Pierce Mat to get the best stamped image. I wrap my Pierce Mat in white paper so that the ink will get on the paper instead of the mat.

Stamp the sentiment “All days are beautiful that begin with you” in Memento onto the 2 1/2 x 1 1/2 inch piece of Very Vanilla.

Cut the banner end by first cutting in the middle. Cut from one corner to the middle, then the other corner to the middle.

Hold the stamped Very Vanilla piece over the Petal Pink Vellum piece and cut the banner edge in the same manner as shown.

I use Multipurpose Liquid Glue to adhere the DSP to the Basic Black piece, then to the front of the Very Vanilla card base.

When you adhere Vellum, you need to by mindful of where you put the adhesive because it will usually show through. The center will be covered by the Very Vanilla piece, so I put the adhesive there.

Apply Stampin’ Dimensionals to the back of the sentiment and adhere to the card over the Petal Pink Vellum.

Cut the 5/8 inch Organdy Striped Ribbon in half lengthwise

Tie a bow, add a glue dot, and adhere to the front of your card. If you need help making a bow, see my blog: https://theresas-treasures.com/2019/02/15/making-a-bow/

And that is all there is to this card!

I made a few variations using some of the other gorgeous floral images! You could also use different sentiments like: Thank you, Just A Note, For You etc.
