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.


  • 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.



  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!

Here is how to make my card


  • Thick Basic White cardstock (cs): 4 1/4 x 11 inches for the card base. 4 x 5 1/4 inches and 3 x 4 inches for cutting the frames.
  • Vellum cs: 4 x 5 1/4 inches to cut the inside oval for the sentiment
  • Basic White cs: 4 1/4 x 11 inches to stamp the flowers & leaves on.


  1. Stamp the flower & leaf images onto the 4 1/4 x 11 inch Basic White cs. Color with Stampin’ Blends Alcohol Markers. I used: Poppy Parade combo, Dark Cherry Cobbler, Shaded Spruce combo, Dark Mint Macaron and Light Daffodil Delight.
  1. Use the Framed Florets Dies to cut all of the images out. You will also need to stamp and color an additional small single flower, large single flower, sprig of leaves and the pair of leaves for the inside of the card.
  2. Run the Thick Basic White cs card base through the Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine using the Pretty Flowers Embossing Folder on the front panel. Set aside.
  3. Cut out the larger frame in the Framed Florets Dies from the Vellum cs and from the Thick Basic White cs.
  4. Cut out the smaller frame from the Thick Basic White cs.
  5. Use the Stamparatus to stamp the sentiment “Thank you with all my Heart” in Stazon Black Ink onto the oval created when you cut the large frame from the Vellum cs.
  6. Adhere the stamped Vellum cs oval to the Thick Basic White cs oval with Mini Glue Dots around the edges such that they will be covered with the flowers.
  7. Adhere the large frame cut from the Thick Basic White cs to the front of the card base.
  8. Adhere the Vellum/Thick Basic White cs oval to the center of the large frame.
  9. Use Mini Glue Dots to adhere the smaller frame over the sentiment piece.
  10. Lay the flowers and leaves down the way you would like them to look.
  11. I adhered some with Multipurpose Liquid Glue and some with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  12. Add the Gold Adhesive-Backed Swirls.
  13. For the inside of the card adhere the images as shown below.

Voila! You have a very elegant Thank You card!
