Fitting Florets Fall Birthday Card

The new Fitting Florets Collection is so versatile! Today I will be putting together a fall birthday card. Check out my previous blog, which is a Blog Hop, to see more cards made with the Fitting Florets Collection.

I just love these beautiful fall colors- Merry Merlot, Crushed Curry and Cajun Craze. The pretty butterfly and chrysanthemum paper is the Rustic Harvest Designer Series Paper (DSP) in the 2022 Stampin’ Up! Mini Catalog. Let me show you how to make your own card.

Measurements

  • Merry Merlot cardstock (cs) card base: 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 inches with a score line at 4 1/4 inches.
  • Merry Merlot cs: 4 x 5 inches for the Framed Florets Dies frame
  • Crushed Curry cs: 4 x 5 1/4 inches and 2 x 2 inches to cut out 2 leaves.
  • Cajun Craze cs: 2 x 2 inches to cut out 2 leaves
  • Mossy Meadow cs: 3 x 5 inches for the leaf sprigs and leaves
  • Basic White cs: 4 x 5 1/4 inches for inside of the card and 2 1/4 x 2 1/4 inches for the sentiment.
  • Butterfly and chrysanthemum design of the Rustic Harvest DSP.

Supplies

Instructions

  1. Use the Framed Florets Dies to create the butterfly piece by cutting as shown below from the Rustic Harvest DSP.

2. Cut a frame from Merry Merlot cs. Stamp the sentiment in Merry Merlot Ink onto 2 1/4 x 2 1/4 inch Basic White cs. Use the 3rd up from the smallest stitched circle in the Stylish Shapes Dies to cut out the sentiment.

3. Cut out the leaves as shown above from the Crushed Curry, Mossy Meadow and Cajun Craze cs.

4. Stamp the 4 x 5 1/4 inch Basic White cs as shown below. Adhere this to the inside of the Merry Merlot cs card base.

5. Run the 4 x 5 1/4 inch Crushed Curry cs through the Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine with the Timeworn 3D Embossing Folder. Adhere this piece to the front of the Merry Merlot cs card base.

5. Adhere the butterfly piece to the center of the card front. Then adhere the Merry Merlot cs frame around the butterfly piece. Next adhere the two Mossy Meadow leaf sprigs as shown.

6. Finish up by adhering the remaining leaves. Use Stampin’ Dimensionals to adhere the sentiment. Add some Gold Adhesive-Backed Swirls.

Voila! You have a beautiful fall birthday card!

Have a most lovely day!

Hello, my name is Theresa. I have 4 children and a wonderful husband of 30 years. I am a retired Family Physician. I love having time now to create and craft, so much so that I became a Stampin' Up! demonstrator. I have been a demonstrator more than 5 years. Not only do I get to craft, I meet new friends from all over the world! Crafting gives me something positive to do and to share with others. I love to have my monthly Zoom Card Making Classes so others can craft with me. My blog was initially geared toward the beginner stamper in order to help others get started stamping on their own at home. My more recent posts have been cards and projects for Blog Hops. Stop by to see my projects and those of folks from around the world! Add more creativity to your life today!
